Jordan Spieth is a father now. Spieth and his wife, Annie, welcomed their first child, a son, on Sunday. “Sammy Spieth born 11/14,” Jordan wrote on Twitter. “Mamma and baby doing great! Feeling blessed!” The birth of his first child was another momentous milestone in a successful year for Spieth.
He won the Valero Texas Open in April for his first victory since 2017. He also was runner-up at The Open Championship, re-entered the top 10 in the world ranking and qualified for his first TOUR Championship in four years.
Jordan Spieth, the best news
The Spieths remained mum about the pregnancy, not announcing it publicly until the TOUR Championship, when a pregnant Annie was seen following her husband around the course. Jordan said at East Lake that the couple was waiting until the baby’s birth to learn the gender.
Spieth, 28, has played just once since being a member of this year’s victorious Ryder Cup team, finishing T18 at THE CJ CUP @ THE SUMMIT. A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty.
This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the "secret weapon" of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.
"He's a good guy, he's been through a lot as a sportsman and he's the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I'm not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period.
" These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed 'the Baltimore Shark', important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. "The mental aspect is something I've worked on a lot with him lately.
I'm really lucky to have him around. Besides, he's a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value." This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
