PGA Tour champion Jordan Spieth is known for being a superstar on the course, but he's also a big fan of his hometown hockey club, the Dallas Stars.

The 25-year-old golfer and Dallas native took in the Stars' showdown with the Minnesota Wild on Friday night at American Airlines Center and was given a rousing applause from the fans in attendance when shown on the video board during the second period.

Spieth, a University of Texas grad, is no stranger to the Stars. The three-time major winner and 2015 FedEx Cup champion previously participated in a ceremonial puck drop before a game against the Chicago Blackhawks in December 2015.

Dallas Cowboys center Travis Frederick was also in attendance, and had a rather hilarious reaction to a strong series of saves by Minnesota netminder Devan Dubnyk that kept the game scoreless in the middle frame.

Frederick could finally cheer a little later, however, as veteran Jason Spezza delivered at the start of the third to put the Stars on the board first with a nifty tip-in goal.
