The Good Guys

Jordan Spieth promises group of young fans he’ll come back to hang out after playoff (then actually does)

April 18, 2022

For the second straight Easter Sunday, Jordan Spieth spent the evening in victory lane. In 2021, it was at the Valero Texas Open. This year, it was the RBC Heritage. Things were far from straightforward at Harbour Town, however, with Spieth needing to overcome a(nother) missed tap-in on Saturday and Patrick Cantlay in a playoff on Sunday to don the, um, plaid jacket.

Before that playoff took place, however, Spieth had to wait out the final groups in the clubhouse, where he bumped into a gaggle of young Spieth superfans, leading to this heartwarming exchange.

See mom, even kids appreciate transparency! On its own this might be just another instance of a star athlete making promises they have no plans to keep, but Spieth, being Spieth, kept his word and returned to sign some autographs and take pictures a short while later, this time rocking some new drip.

What a guy. Resurrection and Spieth claiming his first win as a proud papa are nice, but we’re going to go out on a limb and call this one the feel-good moment of Easter Sunday. Sorry Jesus.
