Fresh off one of the best performances in golf history in the sport’s four major tournaments in the same calendar year, world No. 1 golfer Jordan Spieth will throw out the ceremonial first pitch Tuesday night at Globe Life Park.
Spieth, the Masters and U.S. Open champion who tied for fourth at the British Open and was the runner-up Sunday at the PGA championship, will kick off the second game of the three-game series between the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners.
The Dallas resident previously threw out a first pitch May 21, 2013, on the Tuesday between the Byron Nelson and Colonial tournaments. He was 19 years old then, ranked 169th in the world and without a victory.
On Sunday, he finished 17 under par to push his total score in the four majors to 54 under. That’s a record in a calendar year by one stroke over Tiger Woods’ total in 2000.
