Thursday was a tough day for Jordan Spieth.
During the opening round of the CJ Cup at Congaree Golf Club in Ridgeland, South Carolina, Spieth stumbled his way to a 4-over 75. A bogey at No. 3 and a triple at the par-4 seventh put him behind the eight ball. Three birdies and three bogeys the rest of the way wasn’t enough to rebound.
On No. 16, understandably frustrated, Spieth missed a 30-foot birdie attempt and left himself less than three feet for par.
Like every amateur golfer in the world who’s left with a shorty, he walked up to the putt and went for the classic backhand tap in.
It, uh, well it didn’t go as planned.
