Emotional Jordan Spieth Asks Cameraman Not to Take Picture at Masters 18th

Emotional Jordan Spieth Asks Cameraman Not to Take Picture at Masters 18th

Jordan Spieth asked a cameraman not to take pictures of his face as he walked off the 18th green at the Masters today.

The American was left devastated at the end of the first major of the golf season after blowing a five-shot lead to surrender his green jacket to Danny Willett.

It all came down to the 12th hole for Spieth, as he was too aggressive on his tee shot, putting the ball into the water before then, unbelievably, chunking his drop into the water again.

That saw him go from leader to one of the chasing pack and, despite a spirited comeback, he wasn’t able to recover to stop Willett from taking the green jacket.

As can be expected after blowing the top spot he had held at the end of the first three days, Spieth was emotional at the end of his final round – and that’s when he made the sad request to a reporter at the 18th green.

According to ESPN’s Michael Collins, Spieth said: “Just not in the face. Please. Not right now in the face, please, ok.”

For any golf fan who enjoyed seeing a truly memorable day at the Masters, that quote should bring a tear to the eye.
