Barack Obama beats Jordan Spieth at golf
And then completely freaks him out...
Words: Tim Southwell Styling: GolfPunk
It's all, on down the last. In fact, it's all on down to the last putt. Jordan Spieth v former President Barack Obama... and then this happened... And what did Obama say to Spieth that stopped him sleeping for a week?...
He might be one of the best golfers on the planet, but while appearing on The Late Late Show with James Cordon Jordan Spieth discussed his recent round with the president, and acknowledged that Obama was able to beat him in dramatic fashion on the putting green.
As Spieth tells it, it all came down to the final putt:
"We had a two-on-two match, it came down to the last hole. And the President had a 10-foot double-breaking putt — this is my home course and I've never seen anybody make the putt. And a small crowd had gathered like you’d expect. He kind of said, 'When there's a crowd on the last hole, I never miss.' He steps up and knocks it in — perfect speed, right in the middle of the hole."
Even though he lost, it's still a round Spieth will likely have fond memories of, having also been completely freaked out by the Prez earlier in the round. Watch the vid to see what lunacy ensued...
