The PGA golfer stopped to listen to the student’s presentation during a practice round at the Players Championship in Ponte Vedra.

James Anderson chose Spieth as his wax museum project. The assignment required the third grader to learn about Spieth’s life and career.

“That’s great,” Spieth said in the video.

He liked the project so much that he gave Anderson a signed ball after the practice round.
