Good Sports: SPELL-GOLF CHAMP

When National Spelling Bee co-champion Jairam Hathwar revealed in May that his favorite golfer was Jordan Spieth, it caught the attention of the two-time major winner. He invited the 13-year-old to The Barclays tournament in New York, where they had a spelling contest on the green.

Hathwar spelled three words correctly—borborygmus, succedaneum, and drahthaar—and each time got to move his ball closer to the hole, allowing him to sink an easy putt. The PGA pro, meanwhile, missed all three of his words—zoysia, logorrhea, and triskaidekaphobia—and each time had to move his ball away from the hole, giving him a long putt that he failed to make.

And that’s how Jairam Hathwar triumphed in the new sport of spell-golf.
