It was two holes and two expletive-laden comments for Jordan Spieth on Saturday morning as he got off to a rocky start to his third round at the PGA Championship.
The three-time Grand Slam champion only made the cut by a single shot on Friday, and his bad week in New York continued when he bogeyed the first and then didn’t like his tee shot on the second.
To make matters worse for the American, hot mics caught his very honest shots, as he hit a tree on the first hole and exclaimed, “Holy crap, Jordan!”
Just seconds before that, an amusing graphic on ESPN had detailed exactly where the shot had landed: between the portable toilets along the street.
A few minutes later, as he started his second hole, Spieth was again heard cursing into the microphone, noting: ‘Damn, hit a good iron shot!’
Jordan Spieth has had a tough PGA Championship thus far, and he just made the cut.
His tee shot on the first hole found the portable toilets, much to the amusement of the spectators.
Luckily for the 29-year-old though, he rallied to birdie the second hole, but then normal service resumed on the third with another bogey taking him back to +6 for the tournament.
It’s been a tough week for a lot of big names in Oak Hill, with Justin Thomas also just making the cut and Jon Rahm and Cam Smith also finishing at +4 after the first two rounds.
At the other end of the leaderboard, a very consistent Scottie Scheffler leads the pack at five under par, with Corey Conners and Viktor Hovland alongside him.
Justin Suh and heavy hitter Bryson DeChambeau are two shots away in T4, with the weather taking a turn in upstate New York for round three.
On Sunday night, the winner of the PGA Championship will take home $2.7 million.
