Before Jordan Spieth completed his record-setting championship at the Masters Tournament, he got some advice from another champion, NFL quarterback Tom Brady.

In their conversation (video, above), filmed for Spieth’s sponsor Under Armour, Spieth talks about his desire to win a major and his attempts to conquer the “mental” aspect of the game.

Brady, for his part, humbly impresses upon Spieth his time will come.

It takes time. I was fortunate to be on a great team when I was a young player. At that point you realize how hard it is to actually win … You’re still a young man, and you’ve got your whole career ahead of you.”

Brady won his first Super Bowl in his second NFL season with the New England Patriots. He’s won three more since 2001. Spieth was the PGA’s rookie of the year in 2013. He finished second at last year’s Masters.

His time came sooner rather than later.
