VIDEO: Dustin Johnson’s son steals Jordan Spieth’s putter mid-stroke


Jordan Spieth was trying to work on his putting after a disappointing 2-over 74 at Pebble Beach on Saturday when his putter got stolen mid-stroke.

The culprit? Dustin Johnson's adorable son, Tatum.

Janet Gretzky, wife of Johnson's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am partner Wayne (you know, the greatest hockey player ever) and mom of Johnson's fiancee Paulina, posted a video of the cute theft to Instagram.

MUST SEE! Dustin Johnson hits a golf ball to a cameraman's lens on command!

Spieth hilariously mocks trying to finish his stroke knowing that his putter was gone, almost right out of a Wile E. Coyote cartoon.

Spieth and Johnson, along with their respective amateur putters, played together for the first three days of the tournament. The world No. 1 enters the final round of the tournament 15 back of leader Phil Mickelson.
