Pro golfer Jordan Spieth has partnered with sports gaming group FanDuel in a multi-year deal.

The Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas alumnus will be the face of FanDuel’s golf products and will be featured in television commercials. FanDuel will be the exclusive sports betting and daily fantasy provider for the athlete.

Spieth will also work with the sports gaming group to create content for social media and responsible gaming projects. And FanDuel will support the Jordan Spieth Family Foundation.

“As the PGA Tour and others in the golf world have strongly embraced legalized sports gaming, I look forward to working with FanDuel to find unique ways to engage the fast-growing fanbase,” Spieth said in a press statement.

Spieth was the youngest player to win on the PGA Tour. When he was 21, he won the 2015 Masters and the 2015 U.S. Open. This year, he broke a nearly four-year losing streak with a win at the Valero Texas Open.

The 28-year-old golfer graduated from Jesuit in 2011 and once lived in this $1.6 million townhome in Knox-Henderson.
