Jordan Spieth met with the media on Wednesday morning prior to practicing for the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club. Spieth was asked about his impressions of the city and if he had been out.

So where does a golf star go to eat in Charlotte?

Jordan Spieth, who is in town for this week’s PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club, told reporters Wednesday he went to the The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar in SouthPark Tuesday night.

“That place was interesting,” Spieth said of the restaurant known for its eclectic fare. “It was really good. But I had no idea how to feel going in with the menu.”

Spieth is in the spotlight this week because a win at the PGA Championship would make him the youngest golfer to win a Career Grand Slam. He won the British Open last month to give him three of golf’s four majors.

Spieth praised Charlotte and North Carolina, noting he used to come to Wilmington for family reunions when he was growing up. His grandfather still lives in the state.

“I’ve been playing golf in this state since I started playing golf,” he said.
