Jordan Spieth Announcement Leaves Golf World Stunned As He Is named to University of Texas Athletics Hall of Honor

With three major championships already under his belt and double-digit victories on the PGA Tour, Jordan Spieth is eligible for the World Golf Hall of Fame when he becomes of age and is destined to be a sure-fire member in one of golf’s most exclusive clubs. He won’t have to wait much longer to become part of the University of Texas Athletics Hall of Honor.

Spieth, who turned 30 late last month, will be among 11 former Texas student-athletes who will be inducted this September into the Texas Athletics Hall of Honor.

 

 

These 11 individuals will be recognized as the Class of 2023 in an induction ceremony in Austin, Texas, on Friday, Sept. 15.

Spieth, part of the 69th Men’s Hall of Honor, was a member of the men’s golf team at Texas during 2011-12 before turning pro. During his abbreviated tenure as a Longhorn, Spieth was a consensus first-team All-American and finalist for the Ben Hogan Award as the National Player of the Year during his one full season of collegiate golf and led the Longhorns to the 2012 NCAA Championship, which was played at Riviera Country Club near Los Angeles.

 

 

The newest members of the Hall will receive a special salute during the Texas football game versus Wyoming on Saturday, Sept. 16.
