WATCH/LOOK AWAY: Jordan Spieth misses a 15-inch putt

Published

on

Aren’t you glad there isn’t video of all the 15-inch putts you’ve missed? I certainly am.

Unfortunately for Jordan Spieth, his failed attempt from little more than a foot at the Byron Nelson was captured on video, and it will exist on the internet for all eternity.

Spieth, who has struggled with the flatstick lately, stood over a short par putt at the par-4 15th hole, and well…

Spieth is currently 183rd on the PGA Tour this season in strokes gained: putting, losing .412 strokes per round to the field on the greens.

But at least he hit the hole, right?

Here’s the offending weapon: Spieth’s trusty Scotty Cameron 009.

    15 inches? People are always way under when guessing the length of a putt. Its almost impossible to miss from 15 inches. That was 2 feet. Miss-able. If the average hack actually putted those out, instead of conceding them to themselves, they’d miss about 20% of the time.

      I play in matches three times a week at my home course. Everything is putted in. You would not believe the putts that are missed. That’s good, that’s good. NOT.

    This is hilarious. I watched it about 20 times. How about all the whingers trying to blame Jimmy Walker for Spieth just flat out missing. His whole body is moving away from the hole even before it misses. He’s in all sorts.

      as almost every company has one…easier to copy then to come up with something new. Ping eye 2 irons, has there really been anything better, every year they come out with new irons (even Ping) that just add a different color piece of plastic here and there…or tell us how the face flexes to get more distance…funny I do believe if you check the lofts in current irons you will really find the distance difference…I know my current 9 iron has the same loft as my 10 year old 8 iron…

    Jordan should be calling the Tommy Armour folks for a new putter.

    time to try a different Flatstick i think. He should be able to get Scotty to weld up a Plumbers Neck Fastback for a little more forgiveness.

Brooks Koepka expresses his frustration over J.B. Holmes’ slow play at The Open

Published

on

Brooks Koepka began 2019 by calling out golf’s authorities for their lack of action over the slow play issue surrounding the game, and on Sunday at the Open Championship, the 29-year-old appeared visibly agitated over the speed of playing partner J.B. Holmes.

The two men teed off at 1.37 PM local time in the final round, and from their opening tee shots of the day, which Holmes would take significantly longer to play than his compatriot, it appeared the two could be in for an uncomfortable day with each other.

For the most part during Sunday’s final round, on the course, Koepka was to keep whatever frustrations which were bubbling under the surface to himself.

However, coming off the 12th green, the four-time major champ was seen staring at a rules official while motioning to his imaginary wristwatch, and on another occasion, the American looked less than impressed as his playing partner went through his deliberate putting routine.

Following their round, the 29-year-old was quick to point out that Holmes is far from being the only slow player on Tour, but explained what his biggest gripe was with the Kentuckian on Sunday at Royal Portrush – his inability to prepare when it wasn’t his turn.

“There are a lot of slow guys out here, that’s not the first time I’ve done it, especially when you’ve got a walking official with you. I’m ready to go most of the time.

That’s what I don’t understand when it’s your turn to hit, your glove is not on, then you start thinking about it, that’s where the problem lies. It’s not that he takes that long. He doesn’t do anything until his turn. That’s the frustrating part. But he’s not the only one that does it out here.”

Holmes’ nightmare performance didn’t help his pace of play as he struggled mightily in the harsh conditions during Sunday’s final round. The 37-year-old shot an 87 – 16 over par to move from third place at the start of the day to fourth last on six over.

Koepka had some sympathy for Holmes’ struggles in the wind and rain in Northern Ireland, but despite this, the Florida native made it clear that he still found the pace at times too slow.

“He had a rough day, but JB is a slow player. We were on pace for 13 holes, but if I’m in the group we’re going to be on pace no matter what. But there were some times where I thought it was slow.”

Koepka’s final round of 74 secured a T4 finish for the four-time major champ to complete an exceptional year at the major tournaments which included a win at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in May.
