Jordan Spieth is an emotional player who lets it all hang out when he's on the golf course. Sometimes, he lets those emotions get the best of him, and it makes him look like he's complaining...maybe even whining.
That was the reaction on social media on Thursday at the 2016 U.S. Open when Spieth caught a bad break on the 315-yard par-3 17th. The defending champion laid up into the fairway off the tee, leaving himself with a partial wedge shot in the front right hole location.
Spieth hit his shot well, landing it past the pin, but the ball sucked back, spun past the hole and all the way back into the deep, guarding bunker.

The 22-year-old was naturally upset, showing disgust with the shot. He then chucked his club and said, "This is such crap," to caddie Michael Greller.
"You've got to be kidding me! How is that in the bunker?" Spieth said.
Before Spieth could hit his third shot from the bunker, play was suspended for a second time with him at even par through seven holes.
