Jordan Spieth reveals what happens when Tom Brady loses at golf

Share

As the winningest quarterback in NFL history, Tom Brady is not used to losing.

But it does happen from time to time, including in Super Bowl LII, where he and the Patriots were upset by the Eagles 41-33.

Golfer Jordan Spieth, in an interview on the “Dan Patrick Show” before the start of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, revealed that Brady’s reaction to losing in football is no different from his reaction to losing in golf.

Spieth is a Cowboys fan, but since Dallas was sitting at home, Spieth was rooting for Brady and New England.

“I’m a huge Tom Brady fan,” said Spieth. “I’ve gotten to play golf and interact with him, so I was rooting for him.”

Patrick asked him if Brady was any good … at golf, that is.

“He’s actually a really good player,” Spieth said. “He’s less than a 5 [handicap], just as competitive as you see on the field.”

Does he talk trash? asked Patrick.

“If he’s winning, and when he’s not he’s the guy you see on the sidelines with that look, those eyes like [stares blankly],” he said.

You know that look.

Brady’s sportsmanship, or lack thereof, came under fire this week after he apparently ran into the locker room after the Super Bowl without congratulating winning quarterback Nick Foles.

“But yeah, it’s just amazing getting to ask for advice from [him] because he had so much success early in his career, those first few Super Bowls. How to manage that, how to keep pushing yourself, how to continue to work hard toward new goals,” Spieth said.

“For him, it’s kind of just chasing a ghost only a few people in sports have ever tried to do that. That’s something only a few guys have mastered, your Tigers and your Bradys,” he added.

Spieth is looking to defend his title at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which he won last year. In round one he finished at even par, posting a score of 72. He’s currently seven shots behind Kevin Streelman and Beau Hossler, who carded 7-under 65s.
