Does Spieth look as fragile in person as he does on tv? He looks like he would blow away in a strong wind. I have heard he's a nice guy, though. Have you met a ton of tour guys?
Yeah, we get to see/interact with a ton of them on Monday-Wednesday. Then we see all the interview and the pre and post interview. Phil tells the reporters what questions they can ask. If they go rogue on him, he flips the fuck out as soon as it’s off air.
Spieth is pretty tiny. The other guys are all tanks though, so he looks smaller. He’s probably a bit thicker than most average guys his size. But definitely isn’t built like an athlete. As in, smaller than a comparable guy his height who works out.
Not sure if everyone knows about Spieths sister or not, but she has pretty severe autism. Watched him miss a 5’ birdie, then the comebacks for par, and made bogey. On his way to next tee he spotted her and went under the ropes to give her a big hug. I guess she can’t make most tournaments of his. I don’t think I’ve seen someone ever be so happy to see their brother.
Anyway, love Spieth as a person. Not so much as a golfer. And I still hate that he was allowed 30 minutes to take a drop at The Open. Took Kuchar out of his game and helped Spieth find his.
