Golf Digest – Jordan Spieth had played his first seven holes Thursday at the U.S. Open in even par when he hit what he thought was a perfect tee ball on Pebble Beach’s par-4 eighth hole.
However, Spieth’s ball went long, rolling through the fairway and off the cliff. Making matters worse, Spieth’s third shot into the green went long, setting up a difficult chip from well above the hole.
That’s when Spieth appeared to blame his caddie, Michael Greller. He was picked up on camera saying, “Two perfect shots, Michael. You got me in the water on one and over the green on the other.”
Spieth went on to bogey the hole.
Not a good look for Jordan here just throwing his caddie right under the bus. Now I know it was picked up by a hot mic and its not like it came in an interview, but thats almost worse. He’s just dragging his caddie because he hit a shitty shot. I mean this is Shooter McGavin type stuff here.
Obviously PGA caddie’s a paid very well to advise their golfers on strategy, but thats the key word; advise. You’re still a wildly successful professional golfer, you should be able to stop and think about a shot approach if you don’t agree with the advice.
Damn you people. This is golf. Not a rock concert.
