Yet, Spieth seems totally oblivious, and sticks to the script, talking to Strange as if he’s the guy on the street corner.
Normally, when athletes are interviewed by ex-athletes, you’ll see a mid-talking point correction, saying something like, “…I mean you know, as well as anyone Curtis.”
(Imagine for a second Joe Montana interviewing Tom Brady, and No. 12 tells his fellow 4-time Super Bowl champ what it takes to win the big one – with a straight face.)
Here’s the part I found, well, sort of strange (pun fully intended).
Spieth explains to Strange: “The US Open isn’t all about down-hillers, its those up-hillers too…” You can see Strange’s bill cap nodding up and down, from the side of the screen, with a thought bubble waiting to explode.
"I feel like Angel Cabrera is the defending champion." – @JordanSpieth isn't feeling any pressure. #USOpenhttps://t.co/RUsCMFfVwe

You mean like these up-hillers and down-hillers?!
