Jordan Spieth Thinks That Professional Autograph Seekers Can Go to Hell (Video)
Jordan Spieth took some time off after a practice round on Wednesday at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to mingle with his fans and sign some autographs.
However, when he came across some fellas he recognized as memorabilia dealers, he told them to take a hike. They didn’t respond well, and that started a whole…thing.
He said later in the video below:
“I turned around and they, one of them dropped an F-bomb in front of three kids, so I felt the need to turn around and tell them that that wasn’t right,” said Spieth. “And a couple of them were saying, ‘You’re not Tiger Woods; don’t act like you’re Tiger,’ I mean it’s just like, whatever, guys. You’re still trying to benefit off me, and I’m not even Tiger Woods. So, you know, what’s that say about you?”
“I’m not appreciative of people who travel to benefit off other people’s success,” Spieth said. “I enjoy signing and sign for kids whenever we get the chance. … And these guys that just have bags of stuff to benefit from other people’s success when they didn’t do anything themselves. Go get a job instead of trying to make money off of the stuff that we have been able to do.”
Nice work, Jordan. Tell those lowlifes what’s what.
