LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Jordan Spieth said he completed his bucket list of ceremonial first pitches when he threw from the mound before the Chicago Cubs game against the New York Mets at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night.

"It's really cool, it's awesome," said Spieth, who plays right-handed but threw the first pitch with his left hand. "It's an honor to go out there."

Spieth leads the FedEx Cup standings and is in the Chicago area for the BMW Championship.

Spieth has also thrown out first pitches near his home in Dallas at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, and at Boston's Fenway Park. He said the experience comes with some pressure.

"The only way you end up on ESPN is if you really screw this one up," he said. "I kind of bailed a little high, but definitely was nervous walking out there."

@JordanSpieth throws left-handed. 🔥 Thanks for having us @cubs and @mlb!
