Danny Willett Laughed In Sir Alex Ferguson’s Face After Finding Out How Much Cash Jordan Spieth’s Collapse Cost Him
Yesterday’s collapse by then reigning Masters champ Jordan Spieth will forever go down as one of the most remarkable in recent sports history, with the 22-year-old going quadruple bogey on the 12th hole to all but hand the green jacket to Danny Willett.
And while Spieth is definitely still reeling after losing out on his second straight win at Augusta, former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson—who’s, arguably, the best soccer coach ever—is probably pissed off, too, because Spieth’s loss meant Ferguson wouldn’t win the $11,000 he had hoped for after betting on last year’s champ to win yesterday.
That sucks, but the former Man U boss didn’t let things get sour while congratulating the actual winner and fellow Brit, Willett, with a video even showing the two joking about Fergie’s lost gamble.
Hilariously, Willett laughs in the face of the longtime soccer legend and sarcastically apologizes to him for missing out on the dough, making the new Masters champ my new favorite golfer on the planet.
