PGA Tour star Jordan Spieth and his wife, Annie, have announced the arrival of their second child. The couple welcomed their daughter, Sophie, on September 12th. Spieth shared the news on his Instagram account, posting a black-and-white photo of him cradling his newborn daughter with the caption “Welcome, Sophie 9/12/23”.
The news was met with congratulations from Spieth’s peers, including Min Woo Lee and Smylie Kauffman. Even Team USA’s Ryder Cup account joined in on the well-wishes, writing, “Welcome Sophie – so happy to have you on the US team!”
This exciting development comes as Spieth prepares to represent Team USA at the Ryder Cup, which will take place in Rome next week. Spieth, a three-time major winner, was named as one of Captain Zach Johnson’s picks for the team, marking his fifth appearance at the prestigious tournament. He missed the team’s scouting trip to Marco Simone due to Annie’s pregnancy.
Spieth and Annie got married in November 2018, with the wedding being attended by fellow golf stars such as Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner, Jimmy Walker, and Zach Johnson. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Sammy, on November 14, 2021. Since then, Sammy has made several public appearances, including at the Presidents Cup and The Masters, where players’ wives and children traditionally caddy.
Spieth has expressed his joy and gratitude for his family, with close friend and fellow golfer Tom Kim describing Sammy as “the most wonderful little boy.” Spieth has credited his wife as a rock of support during his career, stating, “I’m very grateful for the people I have around me.”
Outside of being a golfer’s wife, Annie works as an event coordinator at The First Tee of Greater Dallas, an organization focused on inspiring underprivileged children through golf.
As the Ryder Cup approaches, Spieth will be balancing his responsibilities on and off the course, cherishing the joy of fatherhood while representing his country in one of golf’s most prestigious events.
