Jordan Spieth holes a ridiculous bunker shot, keeps crushing his caddie in a bet they made before the season
Putting seems to be the part of Jordan Spieth's game that gets touted the most, but so far this week, he's holed more long birdie attempts with his wedge than his flatstick. It was a chip-in for birdie on Thursday that got Spieth's tournament rolling in the right direction, and on Friday, he holed a much more ridiculous shot to keep his momentum going.
Playing the 18th hole, Spieth missed the green with his approach and took awhile to decide how he'd play a difficult bunker shot. In the end, he chose to go right at the pin despite not having much green with which to work and. . . bang.
Spieth had a bet with caddie Michael Greller before the season on how many hole outs from off the green he'd have. The number set was 13, which Spieth matched and passed at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week.
And through one and a half rounds at Whistling Straits, Spieth has already added two more to bring that impressive total to 16. Hopefully, for Greller's sake, there isn't a bonus part to their wager.
