Camera cable in St. Andrews fairway almost blocked Jordan Spieth’s ball



Jordan Spieth's tee shot at the par-5 fifth on the Old Course during Friday's second round at the British Open found its way into one of the fairway bunkers on the right side. The world No. 2 was forced to extricate himself from the sand as his layup, leaving a long third shot into the green.


After playing competitor Hideki Matusyama played his second from near Spieth's ball, Spieth quickly stepped into the bunker to hit his second shot. Apparently, TV cameras were not prepared for Spieth's pace. As Spieth's ball lands and starting rolling down the fairway, you can see the ball nearly coming into contact with camera cables that are quickly pulled out of the way -- just in time so they didn't interfere with Spieth's ball.

Spieth is even par on his round through four holes, unable to replicate his hot start from Friday.
