2017 Masters Champ, Sergio Garcia, Is Engaged To Longhorn Alumna Angela Akins

Sergio Garcia, the Spanish pro golfer who just won the 2017 Masters, is engaged to fellow Longhorn Angela Akins.

Akins graduated from the 40 Acres in 2008, according to her LinkedIn profile, and is currently reporter for the Golf Channel.

But wait, there’s more.

Her father, Marty Akins, is one of the most successful quarterbacks in Texas history. The only QB to start three years for Darrell Royal, he set multiple school records (many of which were later broken by Vince Young), was named an All-American in 1975 and was inducted into the school’s Hall of Honor in 1995.

Her cousin is also Drew Brees.

Don’t worry Jordan, we still love you.

18 Reasons Why Jordan Spieth Is Bae

Former Texas Longhorn golfer Jordan Spieth just won the Masters. Here are 18 reasons (because golf) why he’s bae. Hook ’em, Jordan!

13.) He’s dating his high school sweetheart

Sorry ladies. Her name is Annie Verrett. And she went to Tech? C’mon, Jordan!

Happy 21st to this beautiful girl! Great time at the Rustic with family and friends @@annie_verret A photo posted by Jordan Spieth (@jordanspieth) on


12.) He went professional at age 19.

Even though he left our beloved UT for this, he’s still a Longhorn forever.   Jordan signing-thumb

11.) He’s a fighter.

He came close to winning the Masters last year. So he had to come back, kick ass, and take names.

10.) He goes hard.

He didn’t stop when he was ahead. “Go hard! Go hard! Go hard!” he cried as the ball sailed through a cool breeze. “Go!”
