Jordan Spieth’s eagle putt that gave him the lead for good late at the 146th British Open will be remembered most for the reaction it sparked. A fired-up Spieth pointed at the hole and barked at his buddy/caddie Michael Greller to “Go get that!”
Apparently, Stephen Curry was watching.
Late in Curry’s Thursday 74 at the Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic, the two-time NBA MVP channeled the three-time major champ following a long make of his own. Curry buried a 20-footer for birdie and gave his caddie the “Go get that” treatment. Check it out, courtesy of the San Francisco Chronicle’s Ron Kroichick:
Is this going to be the new fist pump? Spieth might have to apologize to caddies everywhere.
So who is Curry’s caddie this week? That would be Jonnie West, a Golden State Warriors executive and the son of NBA legend Jerry West. And after Curry’s impressive performance on Thursday, even “The Logo” himself probably would have been happy to fetch his golf ball.
