On the course where his playing partner (Tiger Woods) from Thursday and Friday once won a US Open on a torn ACL, Jordan Spieth limped home to a disappointing 75-75 finish at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Literally, limped home.
Spieth told Golf Channel he had trouble with his ankle all weekend, saying it was "pretty messed up."
"I felt it the second day on the back nine and I guess from there I just stopped loading as well on it and I started missing fairways," said Spieth.
"I don't remember where; it just started hurting, stepped wrong somewhere. I couldn't hit balls after the round. Obviously, it didn't affect the round on Friday, but I just didn't hit any fairways from there. I didn't feel pain at all, so I don't blame it on that whatsoever, but whatever it was, I wasn't loading correctly and therefore I started hitting them left going left, really, with every club."
It's not why he lost but it's something to keep an eye on in the future for somebody whose body isn't used to the grind of a full PGA Tour schedule quite yet.
Spieth is skipping the Phoenix Open and playing the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am the following week.
