Greller probably gave him an extra club both times, thinking that Spieth would mishit it. It's a solid bet, based on his iron play so far this year.

I didn't see this live but here's an article. I can't stand Speef. He's such a little bitch.

Fans were not impressed with Jordan Spieth blaming his caddie.

 

I listened to it over and over again, I can't hear the word "you" no matter how hard I tried.  It could just as easily be "Two perfect shots, Michael.  It got me one in the ......."  or even just "got me one..."

He could as easily be saying he hit them both super pure and they flew farther than normal.  Sometimes players just talk about the shots they just hit.

I actually thought the same thing when it happened. When I read the article, I figured I missed something. Maybe I’m getting old.

To me it sounds like he said "you got me".  When watching it live it definitely sounded like he was getting after his caddie.  

They must have been between clubs on both shots and he went with his caddie's advice.  

I didn't really find it out of line.  When your getting 10% of winnings, you aren't immune to a little blame.

Expecting sunshine or warmth in California might be asking too much ;-)

I think I can hear it pretty clearly right as the video clip goes from 25 to 26 seconds.

I'm generally a Spieth fan, but definitely not a fan of that.

But Spieth is still the one hitting the shots... Even if he went with his caddie's advice it's still up to Spieth to execute it properly. The only thing I could see blaming the caddie for is if the caddie gave completely false information, like if it was 250 to the water and Greller told him it was only 230 or something then sure that's on Greller, but the player should always have the final say on what club to hit.

If they were between clubs and Greller said take the longer one, then it's on Spieth to know how much he needs to dial that club back some or it could go too far.

I got fancy noise-cancelling headphones and I think I heard "ya got me..".  it could just as easily be "it got me".  His head was down which makes it a little garbled.

Either way, I don't care. Personally, I don't think they should be listening for or broadcasting that stuff.  Let the people compete in one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world without having to worry about voicing some frustration and sending the Twitterverse into a tizzy.

I’d rather see 20-30mph winds.

Raining There this morning. The greens are only going to get softer. It doesn’t look like there is  much of any wind.

Me too.  People shouldn’t be shooting 66 day after day at the US Open

I watched some of Thursday's round. Based on what I saw, I am hoping the course becomes tougher as the tournament moves on.

Tiger setting himself up for a solid T9 this week while J Rose is out for blood. 

We’ll see on Rose. Too many good players going out later today that can catch him. These conditions are ripe for Rory. Also think Schauffele is very dangerous this week.

While I agree with this, I'd rather see a course play like this when the conditions are like they are - rather than have the USGA kill the greens in order to have them play firmer and faster.
But when there are dozens of guys who can drive it 300+, then courses of this length become bomb and gouge events

It's the US Open. As a viewer, I expect higher scores. It should be the tougher set up of the four majors. 

Plus I like hear about the players pissing, and moaning about tough, unfair set ups. It shows their worth.

    • An 88 today. Horrible putting. Missed 6 straight par putts from inside 7 feet. I can’t even say well I made a long one that maybe I shouldn’t have. Just plain bad putting. To top it off triple on 18. Ugh. 
    • She deserved at least a sniff of your beer for requiring you to play from the tips and commandeering the cart!  Sounds like a good kid.
    • Had a nice time today golfing with my Granddaughter. We played 9 holes on "her home course" .  She was a bit down in the dumps because she didn't qualify for Monday's varsity tournament. We talked about her best golf days were still a head of her. Freshman envy I guess.  On the first tee she asked "so what are we playing for?" I told her a pitcher of beer, figuring I would destroy her mental prowess right off the bat. "You're on" was her reply. Now my mental game was taking a double take. I've been out of highschool for quite a while, but I'm pretty sure 13 year old, highschool fresh are not into beer yet. She told me she needed a stroke a hole, and that she would be playing from the women's tee, and that I would be playing from the tips.  Now I am really thinking. This time last month this young lady didn't know very much about golf. Yeah, a few long swing lessons with the course pro, and some short game stuff from me, some months ago. Trying to keep my competitive face on, I was.  Oh yeah, that she would be driving the cart......huh? Long story short she netted a 44, while grossing a 53. I think I was conned out of my own hdcp, but still won with a 41.  I was pleasently surprised at her game. I don't what youngsters her age shoot for good scores. I thought something in the 60s would have been decent. I asked her how she missed qualifying for Monday's tournament? She said she scored 51, and needed a 48.  As we were heading off the course, she told me I was going to have to wait on that pitcher of beer. For about 7.5 years. A little personal relief on my part. However, she was up for an ice cream, and soda. My treat.  What can I say. She now owns me.       
    • 86 (+15) on a 5000 yard course. My best here is 84. I really need to learn to control my emotions when I face slow players ahead of me. Today it came on hole 13. Waited for another single (walking as was I) to get out of range. Talked to him at the next tee box to see if he had called the rangers about a 4ball that wasnt letting singles play through. He had another single in front of them. Neither of them wanted to join up which didn't make sense. Had the first 12 holes done in 65 minutes, then it took 80-90 minutes fot the last 6 holes. I know that is normal pace, but it is more than twice as slow as I had been going. I'm glad I kept my head in the game enough to finish the round without killing my score
    • I have the Smart Sole S AND a Callaway 58 C-grind 8 bounce. Yes I know they're both 58. And yes I use both of them. The SS S for deep rough and soft sand, and the Callaway for hard pan, tight lies, and firm sand. All of which exist on the same course. I don't carry a FW so I have room in my bag.
