PGA Tour sensation Jordan Spieth may have fallen short of a victory at the Masters on Sunday, but the 20-year-old golfer is still winning in other aspects of his life.
Spieth’s girlfriend is Annie Verret, who attends Texas Tech University, Larry Brown Sports reports. Spieth and Verret have been dating since high school.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Verret is currently enrolled in the Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech. She’s excelled in the program, earning a spot on the President’s Honor Roll—reserved for students who maintain a 4.0 GPA in a given semester—on three different occasions.
In addition, Spieth’s girlfriend is a member of Delta Delta Delta, where she serves as the sorority’s Collegiate-Alumnae Relations Chairperson. Verret’s interest in golf extends beyond her relationship with Spieth; she once worked at The First Tee, a youth golf organization, as an outreach assistant.
According to GolfWeek.com, Verret was on hand to watch her boyfriend finish second at the Masters in August, Ga., on Sunday. Spieth’s performance was one of the tournament’s biggest stories.
By the end of the seventh hole of the final round, Spieth held a two-shot lead over Bubba Watson and seemed poised to become the youngest-ever winner at the Masters. Instead, he bogeyed the eighth and ninth holes, allowing Watson to regain the lead and, ultimately, to win the tournament.
“It’s just so hard to play the first seven holes well out here, and I was 3-under through the first seven,” Spieth told USA Today after the round. “So if you told me that when I woke up this morning, I would have thought it would be difficult for me to not win this golf tournament.”
Spieth finished the tournament at 5-under, good for second place behind Watson’s 8-under. Still, with time and talent on his side, he’ll be a force on the PGA Tour’s major events for years to come.
