No player in professional sports is better suited for a broadcasting gig after his sports career ends than Jordan Spieth. Spieth is known for giving extensive breakdowns of shots he’s thinking about hitting and how he plans to execute.
Sometimes it comes back to bite him. Saturday at the BMW Championship was one of those times.
While sitting in a tie for the lead on the fifth hole following back-to-back birdies, Spieth found himself in a fairway bunker. His caddie, Michael Greller, begged him to hit a lay-up shot and give himself a look to save par.
Spieth convinces himself that he can get to the green out of the bunker, despite all the obvious problems — which he also spells out.
Greller had one final plea for Spieth before the attempt: “I just feel like that’s a cool Tuesday, Wednesday [practice round] shot.”
Spieth also uttered the famous last words: “The chances of it going up into that water are so slim.”
Oh, Jordan. We all know what comes next.
There’s nothing better than right before Jordan Spieth hits it, he says “This one’s on me.”
Yes, Jordan, this one’s on you.
