Even Spieths "what would Arny do?" was cringe worthy to me. Like he was trying to make it a thing. I don't even hate him, but something is off-putting. His likability has a low ceiling.

I tend to think he is the most manufactured guy out there. Spieth has replaced Tiger on the guy I most like to root against list.

I'd love to see Sergio get it. Well for the contest I'd love to see Rahm come back and shoot 63 tomorrow and win it. For personal rooting interest I'd love to see Rory pull the 63 out (not even sure it would be enough). Aside from that I'd be pretty happy with Sergio, maybe Westwood
You know, I could never quite put my finger on why I couldn't stand Spieth (besides the fact I think his swing sucks and he's really boring to watch). "Manufactured" really hits the nail on the head. All this "we" talk about his caddie and "team" is annoying and ridiculous. I'd like to see him take some responsibility for both his successes and failures, his caddie plays such a small role. It also seems forced and scripted, he's annoying.
Spieth is every private school kid I ever played in high school.
Jesus, I could never put my finger on it either, but thank you, reading these was like a light bulb going off for me, as they're spot on and totally why I don't like him. I don't 'dislike' him, but I was having trouble figuring out why I couldn't get on board with an otherwise seemingly likable guy, but these hit the nail on the head.

Edit: To whomever compared him to Tiger, I think the more apt comparison is to ARod.

Can't wait to watch the entire opening tee ceremony again at some point this afternoon while critical shots are being played on the course.

I'm so spoiled by the Featured Groups and Amen Corner coverage on the app. It's pure golf all the time, switching to the broadcast is so painful after watching it.

The best plan is to have multiple screens. The Amen Corner coverage is truly fantastic.

And this Spieth hate is ridiculous. He's a tremendous young kid. He's only 23 and he's a pretty likable guy. You guys would hate vanilla sundaes.

Lots of us Spieth haters have clearly said we don't hate him. That's one, and 2 chocolate sundaes are way better

Spieth out of the gate like a snail. Terrible start, quickly playing himself out of it. Meanwhile, Fowler is -6!
