The two golfers bumped into each other in the clubhouse after signing their scorecards. Dustin Johnson wanted to know how things had gone for Jordan Spieth.
"Better than yesterday," Spieth said.
To which Johnson shot back: "That wasn't that hard."
It was true — Spieth's second round at the Northern Trust Open probably couldn't have been worse than his first, when he stumbled through an uncharacteristic eight bogeys and a double-bogey to finish at eight over par.
On Friday, the top-ranked player in the world rebounded to shoot a three-under 68, but at five over for the tournament he will still miss the cut.
