Jordan Spieth absolute gentleman even during meltdown
Almost ballsed the whole thing up

Jordan Spieth was put in a position that nobody ever had been before.

An awful tee shot on the 13th and the 23-year-old was left with an unplayable lie.

Tied for the lead with Matt Kuchar, it looked like Spieth would choke again. He blew a lead at the 2016 Masters.

Things got a little bit weird though, nobody knew where Spieth could drop and he was eventually forced back into a practice area.

As his hopes of winning the Claret Jug looked to be crashing down in front of his eyes, the two-time major winner had to hit a blind shot to the green with spectators and photographers surrounding him.

Everything he went through, the American never lost his manners when asking everyone around to move for their own safety.

The whole fiasco took a chunk of time out of his round with fellow leader Matt Kuchar waiting patiently at the green for his playing partner.

And as Spieth approached he offered a sporting apology to Kuchar for taking so long.

What a gentleman.

To his credit, Spieth left the green with a bogey and only a shot behind Kuchar only to birdie the next and bring it back to a tie.
