Jordan Spieth and Lexi Thompson visited New York on Monday as part of a media blitz for youth golf and the upcoming Drive, Chip and Putt National Championship at Augusta National Golf Club.
Spieth wore his green jacket as the defending champion of the Masters, as you can see from this photograph tweeted by Thompson earlier in the day.

And we'd be remiss if we didn't include one from Jordan, as well:

Since then, the U.S. hasn't relinquished its hold on the trophy. The 2016 Junior Ryder Cup will be held Sept. 26-27 at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minn., and the selection process for the U.S. Squad has already been announced.
Here's a look back some of the highlights from the 2014 event:
The greens at Innisbrook Resort and Club have been stingy all week, as evidenced by the low scores to par and struggles by even the leading contenders.
But Charl Schwartzel showed Sunday at the par-3 13th hole that they can be mastered. Facing a putt of some 64 feet -- nearly from one end of the green to the other -- he stepped up and hit a marvelous shot.
It was putts like that that kept Schwartzel in the hunt with the holes winding down Sunday in the final round of the Valspar Championship.
