Throwback: “Baby JT” and Spieth With Michelle Wie

Justin Thomas, apparently home for the holidays, posted an old photo of himself and Jordan Spieth – then just a couple of unknown American teens, along with another American teen golfer: Michelle Wie, who at the time of the picture had already played in four PGA Tour events, including that year’s Sony Open.

The future major champions were in France (the same tournament where the other famous image was snapped) and got their photo taken with the then bigger star Wie.

Thomas wrote: “One great thing about being home… looking at old pictures. This one from 2007 in France with @themichellewie may be my favorite ??? #superfan”

Wie responded, calling the reigning PGA Champion “Baby JT.”
