Jordan Spieth announced the birth of his daughter with wife Annie on Instagram Tuesday afternoon.
The PGA Tour star, 30, shared the good news, revealing that he and Annie welcomed a baby girl, their second child, Sophie, on September 12.
The three-time major winner shared a black-and-white close-up photo of him cradling his new daughter, captioning the post: ‘Welcome, Sophie 9/12/23’
Many of his peers took to the comments section to congratulate the American, including Min Woo Lee and Smylie Kauffman.
Team USA’s Ryder Cup account even chimed in, writing: ‘Welcome Sophie – so happy to have you on the US team!!’

Sophie’s arrival comes as the USA ramps up its preparation for the biennial tournament against Europe.
The Americans will be looking to end their drought on European soil next week and retain the Ryder Cup in Rome.
Spieth was named as one of Zach Johnson’s six captain’s picks and is set to make his fifth appearance at the Ryder Cup. He missed the USA’s scouting trip to Marco Simone due to Annie’s pregnancy.
Spieth popped the question to his high school sweetheart in 2017. He and the Texas Tech graduate officially tied the knot in November 2018 – getting married in their home state of Texas – and according to Golf.com, fellow golf stars Fowler, Jason Dufner, Jimmy Walker, and Zach Johnson were some of the players in attendance.
They welcomed their first child, a son called Sammy, on November 14, 2021. ‘Mama and baby doing great!’ Spieth shared on Instagram after his birth. ‘Feeling blessed!’
Sammy has made a handful of public appearances, including at the Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow, where he adorably wore headphones to protect his ears from the noise.
He also stole the show at The Masters earlier this year during the Par 3 contest, when players’ wives and children traditionally caddy.
He had a blast rolling around in bunkers, testing the Augusta rough and even hitting a few putts with the help of dad.
The toddler has even been babysat by fan favorite Tom Kim at Christmas time after the South Korean struck up a close friendship with Spieth.

‘Oh, my God, Sammy’s amazing. He’s the most wonderful little boy I think I’ve ever met,’ said Kim, via Sports Illustrated. ‘He’s just absolutely amazing. So definitely I’ve seen a lot of kids, but he’s, he definitely makes it a lot easier.’
‘My wife has been just a rock to me,’ he told SI.com in April 2021 following his win at the Valero Texas Open. ‘This is my first win since we’ve been married so it’s been progressing this way since maybe December.
‘Before that, there were a lot of tough times. When you’re struggling at work, you try not to bring it home and that kind of stuff. I’m very grateful for the people I have around me.’
According to Golf Monthly, she works as an event coordinator at The First Tee of Greater Dallas – an organization dedicated to inspiring underprivileged children through golf.
