Tom Brady mentored Jordan Spieth which explains everything

Well this explains Jordan Spieth’s sudden rise to stardom. One round of golf with Tom Brady, one friendly chat between a young hopeful and an established legend and just enough of Brady’s winning awesomeness and awesome winningness rubbed off on him to turn him into a champion. It’s only a matter of time now before Spieth is winning multiple majors, marrying a fashion icon, raising a brood of genetically perfect children and redefining what it means to be a champion. It wouldn’t even surprise me if just touching TB12’s hand like that makes his hairline start growing forward again.
Now as far as Brady’s advice goes, all that stuff about focusing on the next tournament and handling pressure is all well and good. And it obviously helped the kid, but no one should mentor a young golfer without giving him philosophical advice as well. So I hope the lesson included something about the Zen philosopher Basho. Because a flute without holes is not a flute, and a donut with a hole is a danish.
You can see how Brady and Spieth would relate to each other too. They’re both two young men with many, many more championships still ahead of them. Thank you very little.
