Jordan Spieth just won the third major title of his career, and he wanted to celebrate his victory with family and friends.
The problem? The Open Championship was held in Southport, England, and many of those closest to the 23-year-old golf superstar, a lifelong Texan, were unable to make the trip.
Instead, Spieth’s parents, girlfriend, siblings and others were on hand to welcome him back to the states. Spieth’s flight didn’t arrive at Dallas’ Love Field airport until around 5 a.m., but that didn’t stop them from having some celebratory drinks and posing with the Claret Jug.
Spieth’s mother Christine and brother Steven captured some photos of the joyous homecoming, which they posted to Instagram.
It seems that not even a red-eye flight could keep Spieth from sharing his win with his loved ones. After all, it’s not every day you go five-under over the final five holes at Royal Birkdale.
Spieth is set to play in next month’s PGA Championship at Quail Hollow, where he’ll aim to complete the career Grand Slam. Expect an even bigger celebration if he pulls it off.
