Jordan shot 79 yesterday proving to everyone that he is human after all.

“I just played really poorly from good positions off the tee,” said Spieth, explaining that he “overdrew it when you can’t be left and I overcut it when you can’t be right. Just bad timing.”

“I found it very difficult to trust the way the golf course is playing,” Spieth said. I’ve always played where you have to kind of float it on to the front of the greens and let it bounce, and I just never trusted the adjustment.”

“I’m not throwing this tournament away,” Spieth said. “I believe that I can shoot 10-under par on this golf course. … I’m not packing it in by any means.”

Camillo Villegas leads with an incredible -8. This is one of the hardest golf courses on tour, making the Columbian’s effort even more impressive.
