AT&T didn't waste any time creating a new Jordan Spieth commercial and it works

April 15, 2015

Watch out, Rory McIlroy.

We already knew Jordan Spieth was coming after the top spot in the world rankings. But now, he's quickly matching McIlroy in heartwarming commercials about young golfers growing up to become champions.

On Wednesday, one of Spieth's sponsors, AT&T (remember all those commercials about texting and driving during the Masters?), released a new ad featuring the young Masters winner and footage of him as an even younger teen with an "ultimate goal . . . to win the Masters." Check it out:

Less than two weeks ago, Nike came out with a commercial depicting a young Rory following in Tiger Woods' footsteps until he winds up becoming one of Woods' peers, playing with him at a tournament in the final scene. Incredibly, that scenario came true just days later when the two were paired for the final round of the Masters.

Of course, neither could touch Spieth at Augusta National as he cruised to a first green jacket. As a result, he already has his first big commercial as a major champ. We'll go out on a limb and predict it won't be his last.
