Jordan Spieth is about to cash in on a major payday.

According to ESPN, the 22-year-old PGA superstar just signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with Coca-Cola.

“Coca-Cola has always been associated with iconic sporting events and some of the world’s greatest athletes, so this is an incredibly cool opportunity for me,” Spieth said in Wednesday statement. “As a brand ambassador, I look forward to growing awareness for the sport of golf globally and engaging with fans in exciting new ways.”

While Coke has not yet released the specifics of Spieth’s deal, his agent Jay Danzi noted it “will be one of the biggest the company has made with an athlete.”

Coke vice president Peggy Loosalso praised Spieth in a statement for “not only [representing] the golf community but American culture. “He is authentic, comes across as modest and very much represents the values of our company.”

Spieth’s course winnings and sponsorship revenue reached $53 million in 2015.
