Jordan Spieth confirmed on Tuesday that he and longtime girlfriend Annie Verret were engaged over the holidays.
A picture on social media on Christmas Eve showed Verrett with a ring on, but no one confirmed the engagement until Spieth’s press conference Tuesday at the Tournament of Champions. The two have been dating since high school, and Verret has been a regular attendee at many of the team events such as the Ryder Cup and President’s Cup.
Looks like @JordanSpieth gave Annie Verret an early Christmas gift in the form of a very large rock 🎄 💍

“I was pretty confident this past winter,” Spieth said when asked if he was more nervous about proposing or trying to win major tournaments. “It was a good offseason. It was a fantastic year, 2017 was very memorable.
“I forget kind of how I felt the back nine of the British, or I mean of Chambers (Bay). British is still fresh, engagement is still fresh, I’ll probably at some point end up forgetting the British, but I won’t probably forget the engagement.”
