Spieth Rages At Caddie - "You Got Me In The Water"

2015 US Open champion Jordan Spieth came into Pebble Beach as one of the tournament favourites but is down in T58th after a one over par 72 on Thursday.

The Texan is seven back of leader Justin Rose after three bogeys and two birdies.

One of the bogeys was a real unforced error, and a caddie error according to the former World Number One.

Spieth was playing the 8th hole and hit what looked like a perfect a shot from the tee but his ball travelled too far and rolled off the fairway and over the cliff.

He then was faced with some 165 yards to the pin, downhill, after taking a penalty drop and he flew his iron shot over the green into the thick rough over the back of the green.

It looked like he'd make a double-bogey but an up-and-down saved his bogey.

After his approach, he was noticeably angry and called out his caddie.

"Two perfect shots," he said.

"Two perfect shots Michael.

"You got me in the water on one and over the green on the other."
