SPIETH’S A ROOKIE ON CUT RULES
JORDAN SPIETH is known as one of the smartest cookies in the jar but he admitted even he didn’t know the cut rule at the Masters until Friday.
Caddie Michael Greller had to re-educate Spieth, who beat the cut, during his second round, as he stared the exit in the face after a 75.
“I thought it was top 60 and ties because I’ve never been anywhere near it,” said Spieth (below with Greller). “It must have been on 15 or 16, and I’m like, ‘It’s 10 shots off the lead and 60 and ties, right?’ Michael goes, ‘No, it’s 50 and ties.’
“And I’m like, ‘Well good thing I probably didn’t know that.’”
TIGER WOODS WAS RANKED FIRST FOR MAKING PUTTS OF OVER 20 FEET IN THE OPENING TWO ROUNDS AND LAST FOR PUTTS OF FIVE FEET OR UNDER.
