The young stars on the PGA Tour have to be some of the most difficult people to shop for around the holidays. What can you get a guy in his early 20s who is making millions of dollars per year playing a sport that people play to get away from their real jobs?
The answer is not much, so Jordan Spieth decided to make his own holiday special by making a life-changing decision and proposing to his longtime girlfriend Annie Verret.
One of golf’s brightest young stars appears to be off the market.
According to a photo making its way around social media late on Christmas Eve, Jordan Spieth and high school sweetheart Annie Verret are engaged. Spieth’s agent Jay Danzi did not immediately respond to a request for comment from GOLF.com.
Spieth and Verret have long been one of golf’s low-key power couples, preferring privacy to the social media fanfare favored by some other stars. The pair started dating as teenagers, and stayed connected despite attending different colleges.
Verret, a standout student at Texas Tech, works as an event coordinator at The First Tee Texas.
Tour player Colt Knost was among the first to congratulate the couple, shouting out the “Golden Boy” and citing the broken hearts of potential Spieth suitors across the world.
