PGA Championship 2018: Jordan Spieth finds ball in hazard, angrily hurls it back in disgust
Jordan Spieth has never been afraid to show his emotions on the golf course, in good times and bad. Thursday at the PGA Championship was more proof of that, as the three-time major winner battled driver issues throughout the day but still managed to card a one-over 71 after making double bogey on his opening hole. Not satisfied, Spieth went to iron some things out on the range afterwards, having a Bryson DeChambeau-esque practice session that SB Nation's Brendan Porath captured once again:
Spieth's frustrations have carried over into Friday's second round at Bellerive, one that actually started off on the right footing as he made birdie at his second hole, the short par-4 11th, and then another at the par-3 16th to get into red figures for the week. At the 17th though, the driver failed him once again, with Spieth finding a lateral hazard down the right side. In an effort to find his ball, Spieth reached down into some bushes and found a ball, though it's unclear if it was his. Judging by this reaction, it's either not his ball, or it is and he no longer had any use for it. Check out the video:
Without sound or commentary, we aren't positive if it was his, not that it matters because that likely would have been an unplayable lie anyway. We've all been here before though, finding a ball where you think yours is and it ends up not being yours and angrily hurling it into oblivion. Oh, that's only me? Whoops.
Even after this golf-rage episode, Spieth was able to settle down and save par after nearly holing out for a miraculous birdie:
The man never stops entertaining us, does he. He's since gone on to make four straight pars as he continues to work on a bogey-free round.
