Spieth savored the moment after walking off the 18th green at Augusta National Golf Club with his girlfriend, Annie Verret. PGATour.com's Helen Ross set the scene as Spieth proceeded to the green jacket ceremony in Butler Cabin:

Class act. @JordanSpieth hugs his family, kisses his girlfriend and then walks back onto the 18th green to applaud the #Masters crowd.

There were numerous people to congratulate Spieth, including his three best high school friends and Verret, whom Spieth has dated since high school, per Golfweek's Beth Ann Nichols. Spieth appeared to acknowledge everyone around before signing his scorecard.

As classy as Spieth's form was on the course this week, his class away from it is a big reason his mental game is so strong. He has evidently surrounded himself with fine people, who have helped the humble Texan stay grounded amid his meteoric rise as golf's next big superstar.

After Sunday's Masters triumph, only Rory McIlroy sits ahead of Spieth in the world rankings. Both players have tremendous competitive fortitude to go with prodigious talent, and they should continue being compared as they battle in the years to come.
