Interacting with golfers after a tournament is something that every spectator looks forward to while attending an event. A young fan recently went to the AT&T Byron Nelson anticipating a meet and greet. However, here’s what happened when he approached the already pre-occupied current World No. 8 golfer! 

Jordan Spieth was heading to the clubhouse after the tournament when a young boy approached him for an autograph. Not to mention, the problem was that the golfer was already holding his baby.

The 28-year-old could have avoided the fan as he had his baby in his hand. Yet, he stayed and opted to give autographs to the boy. Although one might find nothing so special about his gesture, Spieth‘s effort to make a fan’s day have won over the internet. 

Jordan Spieth and his wife Annie Verret welcomed their first baby Sammy Spieth last November. The golfer used social media to share the wonderful news with the world. 

The golfer married his high school sweetheart back in 2018 during the Thanksgiving week. And at the 2021 Tour Championship, he announced that the couple is expecting their first child.

Additionally, the baby made his debut appearance at the Par 3 Contest this year. The Contest is one of the traditions at the Augusta National before the Masters Tournament. 

6-month-old Sammy, along with his mother, visited the 2022 At&T Byron Nelson tournament to watch his father play. And it is where the golfer’s kind gesture towards the young fan was caught on camera.

The 2022 AT&t Byron Nelson was one of the most exciting tournaments of the 2021-22 season. All the golfers, who advanced to the final two rounds, finished the event with under-par scores. 

Spieth was no different. He made an overall score of 25-under and finished in the second position. The golfer had almost won the championship, if not for his 3-putts from 7-ft on the 10th hole.

Notably, K. H. Lee won the title with a one-shot lead over Spieth. It was Lee’s back-to-back victory at the championship. Along with the title, Lee also won $1,63,000 as his prize money and other benefits including, the 500 FedEx Cup points. 

Meanwhile, as the runner-up, Spieth won $991,900 as prize money. He also won 300 FedExCup points. Notably, he had been tasting nothing but success in the events since the Masters Tournament, where he couldn’t make the cut.
