At just 15 years old, Jordan Spieth could not believe that the mighty Donald Trump was support him as he chased down his professional golf dream. The interview, which was discovered on the web on Wednesday afternoon, featured a young Spieth after winning the 2009 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship with Trump watching.
In his post-tournament interview, Spieth told reporters that the Donald had came up to him and was extremely kind.
Six years later, Spieth inevitably wants to distance himself from Trump as the two find themselves in the spotlight for different reasons. While Trump is campaigning for President amidst reports of rampant racism, Spieth has dominated the golf world, winning two major championships and rising to World Number One.
