Blame it on the aliens speech


Jordan Spieth — the world’s second-ranked golfer — says former President Barack Obama — not ranked — beat him in a round this week at Spieth’s home course in Dallas and did it by calling his winning shot on the final hole. Possibly more impressive was Obama’s trash talking. On CBS’s Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday, Spieth said that on the seventh hole, he asked Obama about his presidency. “He goes through this incredible spiel, and right before he goes up to hit his putt, he goes, ‘And you won’t believe what the aliens look like. … They’re freaking crazy looking.’ And then he walks up, makes his putt, turns back, walks off the green, leaves it at that and gives me a wink. … I’m not going to sleep for a week!”
