The high school junior from Dallas had to cut school to make it to the Byron Nelson Championship, where he qualified with the pros today, according to Huffington Post.

He's the first high schooler to make a big cut like this since Tiger Woods in 1993 and is the 6th-youngest player to do so. "There's never going to be a golf course that's too much for him," said Romo, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback and amateur golfer who befriended the 16-year-old when they met at a tournament in South Carolina recently.
It's been a big day for Spieth, who is pretty much stunned about the whole thing. "I'm in shock right now. I'm extremely pleased with how the week has gone so far. Hopefully I can make a run at the top of the leaderboard the next two days."
He's going to be playing a PGA event in Memphis in June, and has already accepted a sponsorship invitation. It's going to be a pretty sweet senior summer for this golfer!
