Shown in Orioles shirt as a kid, Masters winner Jordan Spieth very connected to Baltimore

It might not be as commonly searched on Twitter as his girlfriend or his hair, but Jordan Spieth's photograph as a 4-year-old in an Orioles jersey in a montage following his Masters victory Sunday got plenty of buzz on the Internet in these parts.

ESPN's Darren Rovell then tweeted out the picture, which was retweeted over 1,200 times as of Monday afternoon.

Spieth, who won the tournament with a record-tying score of -18, is something of a prodigy on the course but appears to have had other interests when he was a kid.

As the Washington Post pointed out, Speith's parents are from Pennsylvania, so it's not inconceivable that they could have had him rooting for the Orioles as a kid in Texas.

The connection goes a little deeper too, though a pre-school-aged Spieth wouldn't know it then. Spieth has an endoresment deal with Baltimore-based Under Armour and appeared with Cal Ripken Jr. on a panel at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on behalf of the company.

The Orioles took note of the photo, tweeting that it was a "great jersey," so maybe Spieth and his new green jacket can grace Camden Yards this summer.

With the Under Armour collection alone, it's safe to say his Masters victory tour might include Baltimore.
