Jordan Spieth whiffs on a chip, then holes it for a creative par

Jordan Spieth is having a difficult go of things at The Players Championship this week. He shot a 1-over 73 in Thursday’s opening round at TPC Sawgrass, then came out and bogeyed the first on Friday’s second round.

After a par on the second, his tee shot on the third found some chunky rough to the side of the green, and that’s when the fun began. Spieth lined up for a chip but cut his club so far under the ball that it barely moved, effectively missing it. Then he regrouped and, amazingly, holed out the ensuing chip:

That’s one creative way to get a par.

Still, it’s just a par, and fitting for Spieth’s tournament so far that his highlight comes right on the heels of his lowlight. He’s still 2-over as of this writing and may need to do some work to make the cut.
