Spieth On FedEx Cup Media Blitz, Lights Up Empire State Building

Jordan Spieth, as the defending FedEx Cup champion (and face of the tour), is on a New York media blitz, promoting the PGA Tour’s playoff series and thanking FedEx for his $10,000,0000 bonus check (which is actually some sort of combination of cash/retirement account/annuity).

First Spieth showed up at the Empire State Building to light up the iconic tower in the colors that signify the brand that pays the bonus checks for the playoffs.

The world’s number three ranked player then did a round of live interviews from a New York studio.

Such as this one for the PGATour.com.

Then it was time for a Snapchat wearing his 2015 (not 2016) green jacket.

Tonight, he’ll appear on Jimmy Fallon.
