Between 2015 - 2017, Jordan Spieth was arguably one of the best players on the planet, securing 10 PGA Tour titles, including three Major championships and the FedEx Cup finale.
Despite a slump in form, Spieth (opens in new tab) returned to the winners circle in 2021, securing the Valero Texas Open, ending a drought that lasted almost four years. Not only was the event staged in his home state of Texas, it was also his first PGA Tour victory as a married man. In this piece, we get to know his wife, Annie Verret, a little bit better.
It is believed that the pair met at high-school in Texas and stayed together despite attending different colleges. Spieth would attend the University of Texas at Austin, whilst Verret went to Texas Tech and majored in business. She graduated with a GPA of 4.0.
After both left University, Verret has been seen regularly attending events and competitions that Spieth is competing in and was on site for his FedEx Cup win and Team USA's Presidents Cup victory in 2019.
The pair officially got engaged in late 2017/early 2018, with Spieth saying: “It was nice. My brother was in town and her sister got in town, so we had our families there afterwards and it was a great night, really exciting."
In 2018, the couple tied the knot, getting married in the pairs home state of Texas over Thanksgiving weekend. According to GOLF.com, PGA Tour stars Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner, Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson were some of the players in attendance.
After nearly three years together, Jordan (opens in new tab) announced at the 2021 Tour Championship that the couple were expecting their first child. On the 14th November, the couple welcomed their son, Sammy, into the world.
While Jordan is on the golf course, Verret is, and has been, involved in a number of projects. She is reportedly the event coordinator for The First Tee of Greater Dallas which is an organisation that looks to inspire underprivileged children through golf. She has also been involved in The Birthday Party Project, which is an organisation that looks to host birthday parties for homeless youths in America.
