Former Texas Longhorn golfer Jordan Spieth just won the Masters. Here are 18 reasons (because golf) why he’s bae. Hook ’em, Jordan!
18.) He just won the Masters.
This is the only time we’ll be proud of a former Longhorn wearing green.
17.) Which means he just scored $1.8MM
16.) He broke the birdie record.
26 birdies during the week, which broke Phil Mickelson’s record of 25.
15.) He’s 21.
He’s the 2nd youngest to win the Masters…behind Tiger Woods.
14.) He tied the 72-hole record.
Again…a record held by Tiger Woods.

13.) He’s dating his high school sweetheart
Sorry ladies. Her name is Annie Verrett. And she went to Tech? C’mon, Jordan!
12.) He went professional at age 19.
Even though he left our beloved UT for this, he’s still a Longhorn forever.
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!”
