Are Aliens To Blame For Jordan Spieth's Meltdown On 12?

Jordan Spieth’s quadruple-bogey at Augusta National’s par-3 12 shocked viewers around the world and cost him the Masters. How could such an incredibly talented golfer melt down like that? We went back into the video to see exactly what happened—and found something bizarre.

Up top is video of Spieth’s second attempt to reach the green after his tee shot went into the water. Look closely at the strange orb flying toward Spieth as he completely botches the shot, sending yet another ball into the drink. Was Spieth distracted by this unidentified flying object? What is it? Is it alien? Reader Matt thinks so. It could also be a ghost!
