OK, so maybe Tiger Woods isn't in awe of Jordan Spieth but this photo sure makes it seem like he knows the 20-year-old is coming for his legacy.

Seriously though, Woods said Spieth is fitting in nicely to the squad.

"He's earned his way on here and he's played exceptional golf and his talent is going to take him a long way over the years. "

It sure will -- and it will be interesting to see if Spieth can pair with that unholy talent a work ethic akin to Woods.

Fred Couples has been impressed so far.

"...he's a much better player than probably any of us were except for Tiger when they were 19 and 20 years old."

And Tiger said that despite his maturity Spieth is still a kid.

"He's a little wide?eyed. He's getting used to it. It's his first time and this is his first year on Tour. This is all new to him, and it's up to us who have been on these teams to help him out and make him feel comfortable."

Honestly though, Woods is the only one here who looks wide-eyed to me.
