Smylie Kaufman, playing in his first career Masters tournament, will tee off Sunday next to defending champion Jordan Spieth, sitting just one stroke off the lead in the biggest tournament of the year. No pressure. Fortunately for the burgeoning 24-year-old, he has a lot of support at Augusta, and one of his strongest pillars of support comes in the form of girlfriend Francie Harris. Natives of Birmingham, Alabama, they attended Vestavia Hills High School together before eventually attending rival SEC schools: Smylie to LSU, where he would star on the golf team, and Harris to Auburn, where she would become a star cheerleader, be named Miss Homecoming and earn a reputation for giving. With Kaufman ascending the world golf rankings, the impressive couple is sure to start getting a lot more attention.
