Hey, I'm Jordan Spieth.
These are my rules for playing golf.
That's good, that's gimme.
No, no, I'm awful.
If you've seen any of the SB2K 16 or 17 videos,
there's some pretty aggressive shot tracers
on my drives after a few beverages.
So I'm no good after having anything to drink.
Yeah, no Joke, straightest ball I've hit in five years.
My favorite game to play, when we have our games in Dallas'
is called Wolf.
You have four players.
You hit in turn on each tee.
And pick your partner, based on your tee shot.
It becomes a lot of fun, especially the last three holes.
The person who's in last gets to pick his partner.
And that's where the pressure
kind of mounts is 16, 17 and 18.
Not much, I mean, we normally play
for a couple hundred dollars here or there,
but it's just amazing.
I'll be on 18, and there's a put,
for a $250 swing, and I'm feeling
the same pressure that I feel when it's a put to get third
instead of seventh in a tournament,
which is essentially the difference
of half a million dollars,
and I feel the exact same pressure for $250 at home.
I'll go over the tree in the corner here.
When I'm playing at home, I'm super fast.
It's when I start getting all dialed in on the course
in turn of play, talking with Michael sometimes,
we get kind of elongated.
But when we're just messing around at home,
it's fast playing golf.
You want me to just hit over your head, okay.
Yeah, we always have at least one speaker going.
Sometimes, we have two or three carts playing
different kinds of music, and you pull up to the tee,
and it's all competing with each other,
but we always have speakers on.
I did it, go in, go in!
Ahhh, no, stay out of the water!
I'll leave it.
There's a lot of it, when we play our games.
Especially when we play on tour, like if I'm playing
me and Justin versus, say Ricky and Phil,
there's constant trash talking.
Phil heckling about when you win three green jackets,
that's when you can talk, or something like that.
Alright, I think I have a decent idea.
It was probably college golf
the last time I walked and carried my own bag.
I'm a little ashamed of that,
because I think that's the purest form of golf.
If riding in a cart means we can play in three hours,
in a foursome instead of playing in four and a half,
there's another hour and a half to go get work done.
So, it's more of creating more time in the day
than it is I just really want to ride versus walk.
That wind is cool.
It got closer. I was trying to fly it further, alright.
I'll leave it, it's too far away.
