Rickie Fowler might not officially be the best player in the world, but Jordan Spieth would pick him ahead of anyone else when it comes to playing golf after consuming a few drinks!
Spieth joined the Dan Patrick Show at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am last week, and he was asked for the one Tour player he would like as his partner in a Ryder Cup setting where everyone has to drink.
I’d probably choose Rickie. He could play barefoot, he could play on one foot. He’s just got this skill set. I’ve played a bit of golf like that with him, Justin Thomas, myself. Me and Justin are awful when we drink. Awful. It’s not enjoyable for us. We play every other hole. I get the snap-hooks. He hits them right. And we’re normally in the same cart so it’s not great. But Rickie tears it up.

But could an imbibed Spieth take down Patrick in that type of setting? The two debated that hypothetical and more in the video below…
