Good thing they asked them to pick up play, they are now 2 full holes behind the next group

Kuchar is just a solid dude. Olympic medalist, tremendous player, never an asshole. He waits 25 minutes for Spieth and he's smiling the whole way.

Definitely one of the longest holes in the history of golf, from the point of the drive to the finish.

And then fuckface Jacobsen calls the fist-bump "a demonstration of good sportsmanship by Spieth."
Seriously. That was Kooch who was being a good sportsman. I mean, Spieth didn't do anything wrong there and it was cool he went over the Kuchar, but, still, Kuchar's response and smile was the story there.

BTW, the idea that Spieth should have just gone back to the tee was crazy talk.

What he should have done was play faster. But he made the right play.

I think it was. He probably apologized to him and Kucher being the solid guy he his smiles and takes it all in stride.
Agree on Kutcher. And it was good for Spieth to apologize. But there is no "sportsmanship" involved in taking that amount of time. It just was what it was. (Which is a hell of a bogey.)

Edit: I don't really have a problem with how Spieth played there or anything about Spieth as a player. I just tire of the announcers (other than Miller, who roots for carnage) openly rooting for him.

Stop, it was an amazing bogey and there really isn't any other way to describe it. And it was amazing for myriad reasons.
There was nothing amazing about it, which is why I predicted he'd make a 5 15 minutes ago. He needed to take an unplayable, hit his layup to within 50 yards or so, and get up and down. Which he did.

Rory gets his backdoor top 5 without ever even slightly threatening the lead

Obviously the bogey was almost like a birdie for Spieth there.

And now we probably will go back to tie, Spieth has all the momentum again after stealing a stroke or two there
