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.

Why not? What's wrong with that happening?

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.

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
