Though he may have plenty of time to sign autographs for genuine fans, those seeking to profit from his signature really annoy Jordan Spieth.


The world number six was pestered by individuals, who he discerned to be professional autograph hunters, following his practice round at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Spieth told reporters at a press conference on Thursday that he has no time for those who attempt to profit from the success of others.

It's not really worth me spending time arguing, but I'm just not really appreciative of people who travel to benefit off of other people's success. I enjoy signing and I sign for kids whenever we get the chance. But these guys have these items that you've already seen online.

Our team keeps track of that kind of stuff, and these guys just have bags of stuff to benefit from other people's success when they didn't do anything themselves. Go get a job instead of trying to make money off of things we've been able to do.

After he stopped for one young fan and one of the men swore, Spieth had enough and had words with them. There followed a verbal row between the 23-year-old and the group of men.

So I turned around and one of them dropped an F-bomb in front of three kids, so I felt the need to turn around and tell them that that wasn't right.

A couple of them were saying, 'You're not Tiger Woods, don't act like you're Tiger.' But here he's still trying to benefit off me and I'm not even Tiger Woods. What does that say about you? So yeah, I get into it here and there.

I was just a little frustrated at the end, and I didn't appreciate the language that was used. It was just some scums that bothered me.

If you ask anybody universally, it's frustrating and they frustrate us
