CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

In a video tweet sent out Wednesday, Iowa native Zach Johnson announced one of the world's top golfers will be joining him at the Zach Johnson Foundation Classic later this month.

Jordan Spieth, last year's Masters and U.S. Open champion and 3rd ranked golfer in the world, will join Johnson, Rickie Fowler and others at Elmcrest County Club in Cedar Rapids June 27.

The event raises money to support Kids on Course, a program at a number of area schools that gives students "the confidence to realize their academic and individual potential by providing creative and inventive opportunities that connect students and families to community and school," according to Johnson's website.
