Jordan Spieth had a saucy 5-word response following Kevin Kisner’s viral short-putt criticism

Published

on

Last week, Kevin Kisner made his debut in the booth during The Sentry at the Kapalua Plantation Course. The public sentiment was that the former Georgia Bulldog did a great job in his first run, and his willingness to poke fun at his friends and competitors was well received.

One player that Kisner gave a bit of a hard time to was Jordan Spieth. Spieth found himself in contention over the weekend, but some short, missed putts really hurt his chances.

While Spieth was setting up a three-footer, Kisner commented on how much time he was taking on the putt.

“I’m watching this distance — this is always the distance I make him putt when we play matches because you never know what you’re going to get.

“He’s spent more time on this 3-footer than he does on 25-footers. If I was going to help him, I’d tell him to speed it up a little bit on these and just knock it in. He knows how to make these.”

Of course, Jordan missed the putt.

“That’s 3 feet, Jordan. Just knock it in, bud. Ninety-nine percent on Tour,” Kisner said after the lip-out.

On Tuesday, Spieth appeared on Sirius XM’s “Gravy and the Sleeze”, and talked about Kisner’s comments on air.

“Yeah, he actually came up and told me the shots he was taking at me while I was warming up on Sunday, which is like 101, don’t do that.

“So I was like, you’re a d**k, please leave.”

Spieth added that he knew he’d “be on the receiving end of some with Kis, and I know it’s just love from him,” and applauded the job he did in the booth.

The three-time major champion also hilariously thought that Kiz was in his “mid-40’s” rather than 39.

This week, TaylorMade Golf announced that they’ve signed AJGA Rolex Junior Player of the Year, Miles Russell, to an NIL contract.

In a statement, TaylorMade called Russell “nothing short of remarkable”.

“Miles’ record setting success at his young age is nothing short of remarkable and we are excited he chose us to support him in his growth as a golfer to continue to accomplish his career goals. Identifying and developing the top junior talent in the world has always been a priority for us at TaylorMade. Miles and his family epitomize the type of athlete and human being we are looking to add to Team TaylorMade.”

Russell has broken plenty of records in recent months. This season, he was named American Junior Golf Association’s Rolex Boys Player of the Year, making him the youngest male player to receive the award. The record was previously held by Tiger Woods who was about 10 months older than Russell at the time he received the award.

At age 14, J he became the youngest player ever to win the Junior PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass at age 14.

The 15-year-old also played in his first Korn Ferry Tour event on Thursday, the LECOM Suncoast Classic, and shot a first-round 68.

In the aftermath of the agreement, Russell released a statement.

“I have had a great relationship with the team at TaylorMade for years now and couldn’t be more excited to continue to work with them in the future. TaylorMade has a history of developing the top junior talent in the world to help reach their goals of becoming PGA TOUR and major championship winners. I am looking forward to working with the team to reach those and other goals I have laid out for my career.”
