  People on Twitter think golfer Brooks Koepka is really hot <p>People who don't like golf often say the same thing: That golf isn't a sport. That you don't have to be in shape. That it doesn't take much athleticism to play it.</p>Allow me to introduce you to Brooks Koepka, who looks more like he should be playing short stop for the New York Yankees than vying for the U.S. Open. The guy is a monster; tall and strong, he said earlier this week that he has yet to hit more than a 7-iron into any of Erin Hills' par-4s. Absurd, considering there are a number of Par-4s north of 500 yards.

Buck went on to tell a story of something he got wrong that was worse in his mind:

"I've done way worse than this, that's the funny thing. But it was before the age of Twitter and kind of click-bait stuff, when I asked [Arizona Diamondbacks player] Tony Womack at the end of a division series game when he was hugging a woman down on the field and I was interviewing him from the booth. Truth be told, I couldn't really see [her]. But we had just been talking about how he lost his dad on Father's Day that year. He's hugging this woman and I said, 'Hey Tony, I can't imagine how that feels, who're you hugging down there, is that your mom?'

"The needle came off the record and he goes, 'No, that's my wife!'"

Yeah, that's probably worse.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate Jordan Spieth? A true golfing gentleman, a prolific winner and a kid who undeniably has a flare for the dramatic. Given the quality of the shot and lustiness of the celebration, it's hard to imagine that the denouement of a regular PGA Tour event will ever produce more joy.
