Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler have been joined by fellow PGA Tour stars Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman for a spring break in the Bahamas... the pictures are hilarious
Jordan Spieth is doing his best to get rid of the memories of his Masters meltdown by going on holiday with fellow PGA Tour stars Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman. Through the app Snapchat, we can keep up with all their hilarious exploits.
The foursome are at Baker’s Bay in the Bahamas, and are making up for not being able to take the same Spring Break Vacation as most Americans their age, which is why their Snapchat stories are using the hash tag #SB2K16.
So far we’ve seen the former World Number 1 Spieth and his three amigos playing golf topless and being ribbed for his chunked pitch shot on the 12th hole on Sunday at Augusta, which led to a quadruple bogey seven and sunk his chances of a second green jacket.
There has been plenty of drinking, boat trips, wearing silly hats, Rickie jumping into the sea from very high up (see below) and general lads banter we're not used to seeing from the squeaky clean double Major champion. Fowler is a frequent snap chatter and one of the most popular golf accounts, giving his fans access to parts of his life people have never seen before.
We’re now into day four of this legendary trip and it doesn't look like the fun is going to stop any time soon, which is great for Fowler and Thomas' followers. Fowler defends his Player’s Championship crown in a few weeks time at TPC Sawgrass.
