Jordan Spieth wowed the spectators at the British Open on Thursday by firing an opening-round 69. What’s so amazing about shooting 2-under? Muirfield is one of the toughest courses in the world, and Spieth is only 19 years old.
After the impressive round, Spieth sat down for a quick interview with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi. Unfortunately, he did not close out the intervew as strongly as he closed out his round. Spieth went in for a handshake at the end and Rinaldi wasn’t paying attention, which resulted in a horrible snubbing.
Typically the golfers stay where they are until the cameras stop rolling and shake hands with the reporter afterword. The youngster will learn that in time. Don’t be surprised if he cuts out handshakes altogether going forward.
