Do I like watching golf now?

I could probably count the number of times in my life on one hand that I've turned on the TV with the intention of watching golf.  But I happened to catch the end of the U.S. Open, and even though Dustin Johnson's choke on 18 gave Jordan Spieth the win, I was still amazed by what Spieth did to get there.

Then last week Spieth was snubbed for the ESPY award for "Best Breakthrough Athlete" in favor of a Little League baseball player, and I decided to officially hop on his bandwagon.

Even though the 21-year-old Spieth finished one stroke shy of a chance to win his third major in a row today, I made a point of tuning in.

When he drilled that put on 16 to tie for the lead, I legitimately began to consider the possibility that I could be a fan of watching golf on TV.
