Jordan Spieth mimics ‘Lion King’, raises son Sammy to Presidents Cup crowd

If the scene that unfolded Sunday on the first tee at Quail Hollow Club is any indication, Sammy Spieth is the next heir to the throne.

Shortly before beginning his Sunday singles match in the 2022 Presidents Cup against Cam Davis,

Jordan Spieth walked out to big cheers from the home crowd as he walked over to his wife, Annie Spieth, and their son, Sammy.

Jordan grabbed his son and then turned him around and hoisted him to the crowd engulfing the first tee,

bringing a loud cheer from the fans. Many quickly made the comparison to the movie “Lion King”, when Rafiki took Simba to the top of Pride Rock and held him up for all to see.

It was an adorable moment for the Spieth family.

“It was fun to see him on the first tee,” Spieth told Golf Channel’s Steve Sands after his match. “That was super cool.

He’s finally old enough to just be looking around and taking it all in and being interested in everything. He loves the ear muffs luckily because it has been loud out here.”

Spieth beat Cam Davis 4 and 3 in singles, becoming the first U.S. player to go 5-0-0 in Presidents Cup play since Jim Furyk in 2011.
