Special Olympics is thrilled to congratulate longtime supporters I.K. Kim and Jordan Spieth, top winners at the 2017 British Open!

This is the first major victory for Kim, who has been a Special Olympics Ambassador for Golf since 2012. Over the years, she's hosted many golf clinics for our athletes around the world; she's also donated to support expansion of the sport. Just a few weeks ago, I.K. Kim teamed up with Special Olympics golfers as part of this year's Perfect Sense Pro-Am in Virginia.

Meanwhile, Jordan Spieth becomes the youngest American to win the British Open. The 23-year-old has been a big supporter of Special Olympics and co-hosted the fourth annual Perfect Sense Pro-Am in 2014.
