Revealed: Why Jordan Spieth missed crucial Ryder Cup scouting trip

When Zach Johnson confirmed Jordan Spieth missed out on a Ryder Cup scouting trip 'for good reason' he wasn't lying. 

Spieth is now a confirmed girl dad after he and wife Annie welcomed their second child into the world. 

Baby Sophie was born on 12 September, shortly after Johnson and Team USA returned from their Marco Simone recce. 

Along with Spieth, Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay also missed the scouting trip but the reason for their absence has not been confirmed

Schauffele is married to Maya Lowe whereas Cantlay is engaged to Nikki Guidish

Spieth and Annie already have a child - a little boy called Sammy - who was born in November 2021. 

Little Sammy was brought to the Presidents Cup last September. Sammy also stole the show during the annual Masters Par 3 Contest in April. 

Spieth and Annie were high school sweethearts and they got engaged in 2017. Their wedding, a year later, was a quiet affair. 

Annie still likes to keep a low-profile and, aside from supporting her husband off the course, helps run their non-profit charity. 

The Jordan Spieth Family Foundation was inspired by Spieth's sister, Ellie, who as born with a genetic disorder. 

The foundation provides awareness and support for: special needs, junior golf, military families and pediatric cancer. 

Three-times major champion Spieth will be making his fifth appearance in the Ryder Cup. That is tied for most appearances on the team, along with the aforementioned Fowler.
