I will say this.  I do miss the tiger press conferences where he just stares a hole through the media members to let them know how little he cares about their questions.  This one was ok for fun. But I wouldn't want to see frat boy night every week.

Every now and then though if they go full tilt fratness... I can support that.

Like after a bad question "do you even interview, bro?"

I am interested in having fun like everyone else too, but does everything that is fun have to have the words a**, f***, s***, d***, b**** and whatever other four letter words some uncouth person wants to use be attached to it?  We live in such a miserable culture these days that it seems like if sex, alcohol, crude language or several other things are not involved with something then it's considered no fun, and people who don't like it are described just like the first poster has been labeled.

It's to the point that another thread on here comes from golf.com's mystery tour pro about smoking pot before or during a round. If a person's life is so miserable or golf is so boring that if you can't have fun without getting get drunk, toke a joint or see some T&A, maybe a little self-examination is in order.

Yea.  I'm on the fence here with the woo a** song. But I agree with you on the broader scope.  People I know today can't seem to have fun without enebriation.  I usually stay quiet aboot it as I know I was born square and I'm ok with that.   But it's hit home and is tough now that I have a kid to raise.  Some  heavy explaining I have to do at times to answer why we don't talk a certain way , or act a fool like a lot of kids do in public.  What's labeled as "fun" today was considered unacceptable behavior when not behind closed doors where I grew up.  

Words that ring in my head from my grandfather as a teenage boy.  " boy ....there's talk that's for your grandmothers kitchen table and then there's talk that's for only around the barn.  Remember which is which or you'll feel the back of my hand across your face ".  
Context was that he farmed and basically meant to be respectful of your surroundings. Having a cuss fight or fit might be ok while feeding the cows or cleaning the stalls... But that certain things weren't to be said in mixed company or in front of a lady or at the table. I had let something slip out at the table earlier and he was calling me on it.   Now of course that's old fashioned. But there's some common sense in there that still applies.  

Was this across the line ?  Like I said I'm on the fence.  Would I have done it on camera ?  Nope.  But I'm not really shocked or offended either.  So.  On the fence.


Young people sometimes make bad choices. However, let's put this in context.  Looking at the event and the results from the event  - the whole damn thing was a joke.  I am sure Jordan and the boys were just bored out of their minds.  

Stupid event, stupid song.

My GOD what is wrong with some of you people?? You like to have fun but you are offended by THIS? You must be a real hoot to hang with. Yep...some self examination is definitely in order.

Thought Spieth's song was creative, hilarious and completely inappropriate.  I can't imagine any other 3 time major champion acting like that.  I really hope he doesn't become the face of golf.  At times he is thoughtful, introspective and mature, while other times he acts like a frat boy or a 13 year old who lost the kickball game and is taking his ball and going home.
DJ sang it also, you not going to criticize him for his actions. Has he not won enough majors for you? Personally, they were having fun and enjoying the moment. Much prefer this as opposed to Tigers actions the last 5 years or so, but that's just me.

It was just like every other post post Ryder Cup or Presidents' Cup press conference. The guys have all been celebrating with drinks and then are summoned to answer a bunch of dumb questions.The reporter asked him a question about his favorite song he heard from the gallery, and that was a memorable one (for good reason - it was hilarious). Would you rather him have not smiled at all and said "well there were a lot of great songs out there this week" ? If you don't think that's funny then you have a big dump in your pants. Do you feel the same way about Dustin Johnson doing the same thing? He danced - so you may have to ask the PGA Tour to ban him now. This thought process of guys not being allowed to have fun is one of the reasons people have been turned off from the game over the past 20 years. It's just not that serious.

I'm not offended, or anything like that.  It's just my preference to be a bit more humble in victory.

i love Spieth but thought it was classless and idiotic as well. In 10 years when he has 6 majors and is considered an all time great and an Ambassador to the game, he will regret that presser. Especially using kim's name.....

With all due respect, nobody will remember this in 10 years, and let's not forget that Spieth did not create the song but was simply repeating something he overheard in the gallery, in response to a presser question regarding the most memorable gallery song from the first tee during the week.

Don't let the facts get in the way of a strong opinion. People keep coming in here with flaming hot takes without actually reading up on the context of what happened.

How dare Jordan Spieth make up an offensive song about Si Woo Kim and his rear end like that!

I will cuz it was funny as heck!  Not necessarily the usage of Si Woo's name but the way Jordan tried to sing it.

I think this was one laugh from being a s'''t show and really funny. The question about tiger and Phil hugging could have been hilarious they are young really good and friends , tough team to beat ,, cost me a sleeve for taking a stupid bet against them. . the putting was unbelievable , made golf look awful easy

Nope; no he won't.

Spieth is a mostly very well spoken 24yr old, he interviews well, he credits subordinates like his caddy to an almost nauseating degree, he seems very well liked by peers who he mostly beats regularly (which is not easy to accomplish).

We're just really, really hard on him. I am not sure why.

Envy.
DJ did call him the "Golden Child"....LOL

When did our "National Pastime"  change from baseball to being offended?  :dntknw:

I bet it was around the same time lawyers and the public realized there was financial gain to be had in being offended.

With all due respect, nobody will remember this in 10 years, and let's not forget that Spieth did not create the song but was simply repeating something he overheard in the gallery, in response to a presser question regarding the most memorable gallery song from the first tee during the week.
sure they will because video stays around forever. IMO its a low point for Spieth. I still love him, but when he is 40, 50, 60 and they flashback on his career, this will be played over and over and its just silly to do on national tv

If we're seeing flashbacks of Jordan in 30+ years it's because he's one of the most accomplished players in the history of the game.  They'll be talking about his Masters dominance (and letdowns), lifting the claret jug for the first time, completing the career grand slam, etc.  The fact that anybody is upset at this is absolutely comical.

That was absolutely hilarious. Makes me like Jordan again. I feel sorry for you if you cant laugh at that and have to write a short story about why that offends you.



the sympathy is appreciated.. while im still not offended.. i do break out into "uncle BS stories" far too often... if you dont know who uncle BS is , google Tim wilson uncle BS... if you like redneck humor its hilarious..... for what its worth, I like Jordans game better than anyone playing today.... so no hate meant from my end
