The praise for Jordan Spieth seems never-ending following his popular Masters victory on Sunday, and no one seems more pleased than Spieth’s mentor, Ben Crenshaw. Spieth had a whirlwind media tour on Tuesday throughout New York, but carved out 5 minutes to surprise Crenshaw during the 2-time Masters Champion’s SiriusXM Radio show, Crenshaw on Golf.
According to the producers, who took us behind the scenes with this video, they knew Jordan was going to call in during the show, but decided not to let Ben in on that part of the rundown, introducing the caller as “Jordan from New York.”
It’s tough to hear Jordan’s end of the conversation – turn your volume all the way up and you can make out most of it – but the emotion in Gentle Ben’s voice is evident. And as the conversation continues, so too is Crenshaw’s pride. Spieth is every bit as gracious here as he has been all week, addresses “Mr. Crenshaw” and speaks about winning at Ben’s final Masters.
Finally, at around 4:20 we find out another nice detail. That green jacket? Turns out it’s also pretty comfortable.
