The game of golf can yield some of the most frustrating moments in all of sports — even for three time major champion Jordan Spieth.
During Saturday’s third round of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, Spieth lined up for a putt just outside three feet. Hitting the right edge of the cup, the 28-year-old golfer’s ball lipped all the way around the hole and shot straight back towards him.
Here’s a clip of the miss:

While this miss was certainly demoralizing for the No. 11 golfer in the world, he didn’t let it affect him for too long. On the very next hole, Spieth drained a 22-foot birdie putt.
Now through 12 holes at TPC Southwind in Shelby County, Tennessee, Spieth is 2-under par on the day. His 2-under par score for the tournament has him positioned in a tie for 40th.
American golfer Harris English leads the field by two strokes at 13-under. He will tee off with Cameron Smith (11-under) in the final grouping at 2 p.m. ET later today.
