In New York for this week's PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup-opener -- The Barclays at Bethpage Black -- two-time major champion Jordan Spieth paid a visit to the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday.
Spieth, who has locked up his spot on his second consecutive Ryder Cup USA team, talked to Fallon about a variety of things, but two stories in particular really stuck out.
First, Spieth talked about having played golf with actor Bill Murray on a number of occasions. Spieth praised Murray's ability to keep things fun during all 5 1/2 hours of those sometimes dreaded pro-am rounds, making everyone laugh with his one-liners on every hole.
In their most recent round, Spieth relayed a story about how a fan got Murray's attention and gave the Caddyshack star a cigar. Murray immediately walked the cigar over to Spieth's manager's 9-year-old son. Looking confused and wondering, "what the hell am I supposed to do with this," Spieth said the young boy gave the cigar back to Murray.
Without missing a beat, Murray asked the boy, "What? Are you trying to quit?"

Spieth also told Fallon about putter he's been using for "some 7-8 years now" and discussed how its appearance has changed through the years:
Spieth tees it up on Thursday in search of his third victory this season.
