Jordan Spieth has won 4 tournaments this season including two major championship victories. Now, he’s winning social media.
Okay, that’s largely my opinion, but Spieth got in on the “dubsmash.com” phenomenon that’s been making the rounds on Instagram and Twitter over the past couple weeks by doing his version of Jim Mora’s famous “Playoffs” rant. The PGA Tour Instagram account posted the clip to their page prior to the opening round of the Barclay’s earlier today.
Of course it is playoff time for golf as The Barclay’s represents the first of four events in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Despite Spieth’s enthusiasm, he shot a 4-over 74 on the day. Judging by the way his season has gone though, I’m sure he’ll rebound just fine on Friday. He did come into the event leading by a wide margin in the FedEx Cup points after all.
