Jordan Spieth is back in action at Augusta this week, as the American aims to win his second Green Jacket at the Masters. The 27-year-old will likely be joined in Georgia by his wife, Annie Verret, as she’s supported him ever since they got together back in high school.
Spieth and Verret met at high school in Texas, more than a decade ago.
They got engaged in January 2018, and then tied the knot in November that year.
The pair now live in a huge £6million-valued mansion in Dallas, Texas, and Verret is a highly-successful event co-ordinator.
She uses golf to mentor young people with the First Tee of Dallas organisation.
“We went to the Caribbean. We had a good time. Went to a couple different places,” he said.
“It was nice after the wedding to go away and just have nothing going on. Then we both got a little bit bored, so good to be able to see other humans. It was a good time.
“I’m fine with [swinging] with [the ring]. It’s just my putting. When I’m cross-handed, [it] kind of jams into my grip.
“Unfortunately that means I’ll probably lose some rings. As of now, I don’t think I’m going to start playing with it on.”
“I feel like there’s quite a few things that I still need to really improve on and I felt that over the weekend,” Spieth said, ahead of this week’s Masters.
“I felt that it wasn’t the best my swing felt. It wasn’t the best my [putting] stroke felt. There are times and ways that I can take a step forward and feel better and produce better golf shots consistently and produce better strokes.
“It is pretty awesome when I look back and think there’s a next level that I’ve been at that I’m still searching for right now.
“I like the progress that I’m making. I don’t feel that I have the control of all facets of my game that I want to have yet.”
