Jordan Spieth appears to be engaged to long-time girlfriend Annie Verret

It appears Jordan Spieth got himself a fiancée for Christmas.

An image posted on social media Christmas Eve shows Spieth, the 2017 British Open champion, smiling alongside his long-time sweetheart Annie Verret, who is flashing what looks very much like an engagement ring.

Spieth and Verret have been dating since high school. Unlike many of the game’s other notable couples, they have kept their shared lives out of the spotlight save for a handful of posts on Instagram.

Verret attended Texas Tech while Spieth was playing at Texas. She currently works as an event coordinator at The First Tee Texas.

And at least according to one PGA Tour pro, hearts are a breaking across the golf world.

Spieth’s agent had not responded to an email request to confirm the news, nor did Verret respond to a request for confirmation sent via social media.

There’s always a (tiny) chance this could be an epic practical joke.  But Spieth has seen golfing compatriots Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia wed in the past seven months. And Verret was with Spieth when he won at The Masters Augusta in 2015 and again after his triumph at Royal Birkdale in 2017.

After his Open win this year, Spieth offered his perspective on golf, after listing his faith as the most important thing in his life.

“It’s not my number one in life,” he said. “And I’ll have a family of my own someday — golf will be fourth. So, as of now, you know, my relationships I have with my best friends and my family and my girlfriend are second and golf’s third.”
