Spieth gets Augusta surprise
Jordan Spieth returned to Augusta for the first time since his major win earlier this year and received a welcomed surprise.
The world number one was awarded his first green jacket in April – and will be one of the favourites in the golf betting odds to win a second next year – and returned to the scene of his famous achievement last week.
"I went for the first time and saw my name on the big trophy there," the 22-year-old told Golf Week.
"Everyone treating you [nicely], saying 'Mr. Spieth, you have a tab, anything I can do for you? And here’s your new locker room."
Each major has its own tradition and the Masters is no exception. If one wins a green jacket, you gain access to the upstairs Champions Locker Room. Here, players share lockers with past champions and Spieth was eager to see who his locker-buddy is.
"I walked up to see who I was with," said a grinning Spieth.
"And I share a locker with Arnold Palmer. So it was a very special moment there."
The two-time major winner went on to say that the Augusta will always have a special place in his heart following his maiden major win.
"It's just a special place," he added.
"It was such a special place for my parents to watch what has happened these last couple years, and then to be my favorite place in the world, and to share that with my dad, and him to know that, it's really cool."
