Jordan Spieth is saying that his putter has ‘friction issues’ with greens when they get "shiny."
He asked a rules official on Saturday at Doral if he could wet the bottom of his club so it would better grab the ground. Now, this is a completely new one for us, and to the rules officials as well.
"Nobody knew the answer," Spieth said.
“It was a split on the decision. They called the [U.S. Golf Association] and said that the USGA was going to talk about it further but for now we’re going to rule that you cannot do it.”
