Jordan Spieth joined the Dan Patrick Show at theAT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am early Friday morning to break down his golf game, tell some stories and provide a few tips for the show’s producers. But Patrick was most captivated by something unexpected: Spieth’s right hand.
“How banged up are your hands?” Patrick asks in the below interview, looking at Spieth incredulously after noticing the callouses as Spieth described one tip. “Good god! It’s golf!”
Spieth smiles, playing off the callouses as part of the cost of doing business.
“Like I said, I’ve been trying to trend the right way, so I’ve been grinding a little bit, so I’m bleeding here…” he says, pointing to one of his fingers. “Yeah this is kinda, this got cut open in here somehow…”
Patrick makes Spieth hold his hand up to the camera to show just how warped the callouses have made his fingers appear.
“There’s some grip pressure issues in here, aren’t there?” Patrick asks.
“No, I got kind of a weird grip and it just makes these callouses, and If I got rid of the callouses they would just blister up,” Spieth responds.
