Skip Bayless is not a Jordan fan. The Fox Sports host unleashed a series of tweets after Jordan Spieth's British Open victory yesterday taking the three-time major champion to task, in particular for his reliance on caddie Michael Greller.
"Spieth is the mentally toughest psychological mess in golf history," he wrote. "Never seen such a great player so dependent on caddie. Jordan Greller."
Bayless also thought that Spieth wasn't fair to Matt Kuchar during the 30-minute long wait on the 13th hole. "Not fair what Jordan Spieth did to Kuchar on 13. Spieth, slowest player on Tour, took forever to make decisions," he wrote.
At least Spieth thanked Kuchar for waiting as he took 20 mins to play 3rd at 13 & said other players wouldn't have been so patient. Exactly.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) July 23, 2017
Spieth obviously got all-time hot after bogey escape. But his twosome already on clock for slow play. Should be penalty clock between shots.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) July 23, 2017
Spieth was so lucky he hit 3rd shot on 13 fat. He thought it was in trouble (sand/weeds). Had clean pitch to make terrific up/down for bogey— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) July 23, 2017
It's not the first time Bayless has offered his opinion on the sport. The responses to his tweets were about as critical as expected, an indication that most people who followed the round were Team Jordan/Greller.

Really?Golf's about shot making and mental toughness.Kooch played his game, and Spieth followed the rules of the R&A. Patience part of game.— Tim Brando (@TimBrando) July 23, 2017
