These throwback photos of Lexi Thompson and Jordan Spieth are awesome

We love old-school photos of our favorite tour pros. And these photos shared by Jordan Spieth and Lexi Thompson from when they teamed up at the 2008 Junior Ryder Cup are pure gold.

Spieth, then 15, and a 13-year-old Thompson were paired in a match play event in the fall of 2008. Talk about a deadly duo. Of course they dominated a European pairing 6 and 5.

The two talented U.S. golfers shared the photos on social media last night before appearing together Monday to promote the Drive, Chip & Putt Championship.

There's a lot of buzz in the golf world about men's and women's joint events recently. The PGA Tour and LPGA Tour just announced a strategic alliance agreement, leading golf fans to hope there will be a dual event in the future with men and women stars.

Future stars will be on display the Sunday before the Masters at the Drive, Chip & Putt, which, in its third year this spring, is getting a huge boost from two of the brightest stars in the game.
