The Open Championship, for the second straight year, gave us a tournament for the ages, with Jordan Spieth holding off the always dangerous Matt Kuchar for his third major title. After Spieth’s victory lap around Royal Birkdale, an eager fan was trying to give Spieth a five or handshake but failed in the attempt.
The man tripped, knocked the fence down, and face planted onto all of that history sitting in the Birkdale grass. The man is OK, so it’s all good in the hood.
Certainly, though, it must have been embarrassing. But hey, he got a little fame out of it, as the tweet by Alex Meyers of Golf Digest almost broke Twitter.
Let this be a lesson though. Sports is supposed to be exciting, but let’s learn to keep that excitement tamed. Otherwise, you could hurt yourself, others…..fences, the ground, etc.
And please don’t trip and fall on purpose. You will not go viral.

If you’re excited that it’s Friday, here’s a video that’ll make your day even brighter. Two children tried to recreate the now famous celebration between Jordan Spieth and caddie Michael Greller, after their thrilling win at the Travelers Championship. In case you were wondering, Spieth defeated Daniel Berger with a hole out from a greenside bunker in a playoff.
The kids failed but it was too cute to even matter, as hats were being thrown as the two boys celebrated their own PGA Tour victory. The trophy they won? Everybody’s hearts.
Oh, and the tackle at the end? Priceless. Happy Friday!

It was a terrific bunker shot by Jordan Spieth. But, the reason why it was the shot of the year, was the fact that it was done in a playoff, to win.
When it seemed like it was going to be a duel between Spieth and Daniel Berger, the playoff almost abruptly after the clutch hole-out by Spieth. Berger had a putt to tie, but just missed it, making Spieth the youngest player since Tiger Woods to get his first 10 wins on the PGA Tour.
This, and of course he has the two majors at the Masters and U.S. Open. mind you, when many fans, myself included, say Jordan’s shot was the best of the year, we’re excluding the majors, and are only talking about on the PGA Tour.
Because as we know, many will be quick to point out better shots at the majors. Certainly a couple of shots come to mind, is Justin Thomas’ incredible approach shot with a 3-wood at Erin Hills during the U.S. Open.
Another would be Sergio Garcia’s amazing putt on 15 at the Masters. Brooks Koepka’s string of long range putts at the U.S. Open also could make the list.
However, on the Tour schedule, this was clearly the best. Not only that, under the circumstances, it could rival that of the shots at the majors.
In a playoff,you’re in the bunker, in jepordy of possibly losing the title after having the lead all week, and you drill it. At one the PGA Tour’s most popular tournaments as well, mind you.
Well played Jordan. Also a tip of the cap to Dan Berger, he played great, and has had a very nice season.
Now go to beach and work on your bunker shots. Sand castle builders, you have been warned.

Putting is one of the trickiest things to do in golf. Greens are usually the toughest tests on any golf course as you need to read the slopes to have a shot.
Well, Jordan Spieth makes putting look easy, sometimes too easy. A couple of days ago, he hit a no-look putt as the ball went straight for the hole.
Certainly, jealousy ensues in the minds of golfers everywhere as one can try a no-look putt but may fail a few times. Unless of course it’s a tap-in.
I will say, although I never made a no-look putt, I did make a 20-footer with one hand. That was after hitting numerous putts from that same spot though so no, it wasn’t nothing special.

Defending U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth had one of the most unlucky breaks you can get. During the U.S. Open on the par-4 17th, Spieth hit his tee shot and went for the green.
As it landed, it had backspin on it and the ball kept rolling…and rolling and rolling. This left Spieth in a horrible position causing him to shout different things as he walked away angry.
So, Oakmont has proved once again that it truly is one of the toughest tests in golf. Have fun kids!

As you may know now, unless you drifted off into wonderland, that Jordan Spieth had one one of biggest meltdowns in Masters history by losing a six stroke lead on the back nine. Danny Willett would win it with a bogey-free round.
But, despite the shocking loss, the video above show a funny version of it. It’s a perfect way to show exactly how a lot of us play golf, after all, it always seems like a video game glitch for most of us.
Enjoy the video by The Kicker, and I hope it brightens up your Monday. Happy golfing.

Englishman Danny Willett has won the 2016 Masters with a bogey-free -5, 67 final round in unfavorable conditions. He becomes only the second player from England to win the Masters.
The only other Englishman to win it is Sir Nick Faldo who won it three times. Willett defeated Lee Westwood and Jordan Spieth by three shots for his fifth worldwide win and first major.
Willett began the round at even par while Spieth was attempting to go wire-to-wire for his second straight Masters victory. Spieth was -7 going into the back nine and five shots ahead of the field.
Spieth had the wire-to-wire lead, but the players in second and third place were switching like wildfire. At one point, even 58-year-old Bernhard Langer was just a couple of shots off the lead.
The 28-year-old Willett wasn’t even sure if he was going to play in the Masters as he was expecting a child in the same week. On top of that, this was only his second Masters appearance.
Last season, Willett finished in a tie for 38th at Augusta. His best finish in any major was at the 2015 Open Championship at St. Andrews where he finished tied for sixth (Zach Johnson won it in a playoff against Marc Lieshman and Louis Oosthuizen).
Willett is the 12th ranked player in the world and that ranking will likely go up after this victory. Spieth, who won the Masters last year with a record tying -18, was looking to become only the fourth player in golf history to win back-to-back Green Jackets.
But, the combination of a couple of bogeys including a quadruple-bogey on the back nine by Spieth, and a scorching round by Willett, lead to the end of what was a roller coaster of a Masters tournament.

According to GolfDigest.com, Jordan Spieth and Nick Faldo pulled up next to each other in Augusta and the reported exchange was hilarious.
Spieth: “Hey, you know, I’m the defending champion.”
Faldo: “Three to one” (Faldo referring to his three Masters wins over Spieth’s one)
Spieth: “I haven’t even played in three.”
Nice comeback Jordan.
Speaking of Faldo, this year marks the 20th anniversary of his comeback against Greg Norman at the 1996 Masters. Many consider the loss by Norman as one the biggest collapses in golf history.
The 1996 Masters victory by Faldo was his sixth and final major title.

Jordan Spieth’s favorite player when he growing up?
“I obviously loved his golf swing. Who doesn’t?”
— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) March 22, 2016
Before the start of the WGC Dell Match Play, Jordan Spieth announced who his idol was growing up, and it wasn’t Tiger Woods like probably most players his age admired.
Instead, it was Adam Scott, who is on his way to possibly one of his best seasons ever. Spieth said he loves the 2012 Masters champion’s swing which he has become famous for as well as his putting ability.
Surely Scott, who never seems to age, may feel old after Spieth comment. Of course, it’s also flattering for the Aussie who’s really close to making his way into the Hall of Fame with 13 PGA Tour wins and a Masters title to his credit.
Can’t go wrong with that choice Mr. Spieth.

Jordan Spieth is known as one of the nice guys in golf but he;s certainly hasn’t shied away from humor.
Spieth has become famous for his strong team effort with his caddie, Michael Greller and this commercial nails that friendship perfectly. Spieth is seen having a hard time choosing which utensil to use to eat a bowl of macaroni and cheese, but Greller is by his side, switching tools as if they were golf clubs.
At the end of the commercial, ESPN anchor Stan Varret is shown switching utensil like Spieth did before heading to his seat. Spieth is no stranger to funny commercials as he also did one with the PGA Tour a while which shows a man hanging out with him as if he were there (but he wasn’t).
