Spieth became the second youngest player to earn the coveted green jacket in 2015 and continued his record-breaking season, winning a second major championship later that year and the 2015 FedEx Cup. He was also the 2015 PGA Tour Player of the Year and the 2013 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. In 2014, Spieth became the youngest player since 1929 to compete on the United States Ryder Cup team, and has earned a spot on every team event since.
“As one of the most recognizable symbols in sports, it’s a such a tremendous honor to be featured on the Wheaties box,” said Spieth.
“I have always been a fan of Wheaties and value their commitment to athletes that give back as much as their on-course performance,” he added.
Look for Spieth’s limited-edition iconic orange Wheaties box to start appearing on the shelves of retailers nationwide in October 2017.
