They say that Everybody Loves Raymond, and thankfully for Ray Romano, Jordan Spieth still does too.
It was a close call, however, as the former sitcom star very nearly got into Spieth’s bad books at the Pebble Beach Pro-am this weekend.
Spieth was standing over his tee shot at the fifth when someone warned him to duck:
Look out, @JordanSpieth!

It turns out amateur golfer Romano had let one get away from him, and it was headed right in Spieth’s direction.
Got the real pro-am experience this morning at the AT&T Pebble Beach. Standing on fifth tee watching @JordanSpieth get ready to tee off & Ray Romano skulls a screaming bunker shot from 4th FW over my head & Spieth’s head & everyone on that tee

Luckily for everyone concerned, Spieth was not hit, and Romano’s reputation as a decent 17-handicapper remained intact.
He led Europe to one of the most incredible Ryder Cup victories of all time, but how much do you know about the great Jose Maria Olazabal?
