It's official: Jordan Spieth confirms engagement to Annie Verret

Jordan Spieth got himself a fiancée for Christmas, the pro golfer confirmed Tuesday.

An image posted on social media Christmas Eve showed Spieth, the 2017 British Open champion, smiling alongside his longtime sweetheart Annie Verret, who was flashing what turned out to be an engagement ring.

Spieth, who was speaking prior to this week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, did not offer any details on wedding plans, but said both of their families were around to celebrate the news.

“It was nice,” said Spieth, who added he was sick on the day he popped the question but opted to persevere nonetheless.

Spieth and Verret have been dating since high school. Verret went on to attend Texas Tech while Spieth played a season and a half at Texas. She has been on hand for many of Spieth’s great golf moments, including his wins at the 2015 Masters at Augusta National and 2017 British Open at Royal Birkdale, plus both Ryder and Presidents cups.

Verret currently works as an event coordinator at The First Tee Texas.

Spieth has seen golfing compatriots Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia wed in the past seven months, but 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.

Spieth was asked Tuesday to compare his nerves at The Open to his nerves on the the night he proposed to Verret.

“I was probably most nervous at the British,” Spieth said. “… I was pretty confident this past winter. It was good offseason.”
