This time, Jordan Spieth had a right to be angry.
Spieth’s second round at the US Open was nearly derailed Friday when he hit a rake trying to come out of a fairway bunker on the second hole (his 11th) at Pebble Beach.
“Oh, it hit the rake. There’s a rake there,” Spieth said to caddie Michael Greller in disbelief.
The thoughts and prayers were out for Greller — as the position of the rake is his responsibility — after the mixup and Spieth’s display of anger from Thursday.
“Legit afraid Jordan Spieth is gonna attack his caddie, Michael. #USOpen,” reporter Jeff Eisenband live tweeted.
Spieth was able to save bogey after pitching out from the top of the bunker and then hitting a brilliant fourth shot.
“If I had seen it, I would have moved it,” Spieth said during a post-round interview on Fox Sports. “I was trying to clear it higher than that anyways. I don’t know where the ball would have ended up if it didn’t hit the rake.”
Spieth, who finished Friday at 1-under par, erupted at Greller on Thursday.
“I hit two perfect shots and they both ended up in the wrong location,” Spieth said. “Two perfect shots there, Michael. You got me one in the water and one over the green.”
