WATCH: Jordan Spieth misses a SIX INCH putt
Every golfer has done something stupid while frustrated that they immediately regretted. Whether it’s breaking a club, attempting a reckless recovery shot, or in Jordan Spieth’s case, mis-hitting a six inch tap-in.
On Friday at the 2018 Northern Trust at Ridgewood Country Club, Spieth left his bogey putt short after making a mess of the 18th hole. He then stubbed his one-handed double-bogey attempt from 6 inches, hitting it only halfway. Spieth smartly put two hands on the club with his normal cross-handed grip and completed the hole for a triple-bogey 7.

Spieth’s putting woes continue to haunt his 2018 season; he currently sits at 140th in Strokes Gained: Putting on the year, according to pgatour.com. A far cry from being widely considered one of the best putters in the game throughout his career.
Despite the shocking miscue, Spieth shot a 1-under 70 on the day and sits at 2-under for the event. The cut was at even par.
