Here’s a bit of good news for Jordan Spieth. Although Donald Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner and noted watcher of sports, called him out for choking Sunday in the the final round of the Masters, he doesn’t think Spieth will be permanently warped by the meltdown.

Spieth gacked a five-stroke lead and missed the chance to repeat as the tournament’s champion, losing to Danny Willett. Trump couldn’t help but be reminded of Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee who lost to President Obama in the 2012 election.

“That last election should have been won, except Romney choked like a dog. He choked … Let me tell you, Jordan Spieth choked a little bit,” Trump said in a campaign speech in Rome, N.Y. “But you know what? He’s going to recover. He’s a great young guy and he’s going to recover. Romney can’t recover from a choke.”

Trump, owner of several golf courses, seems to always find time to watch sports, whether it’s the NFL playoffs or the Masters.

“Golf is very delicate game. It’s a tough mental game,” Trump told New York’s WOR. “It’s one of those things that makes it great and horrendous. [Spieth] is such a nice young guy and he was doing it so well. … It looked like it was over. He was playing so well. Then he got a bogey, then he got another bogey, then he got a little scared. Then he hit the ball in the water. Then he hit another ball in the water.

“…He’ll be good. He’ll come back. But that’s something that is life-shattering, to be honest. If you lose, you lose by one stroke. But when you do what he did, the second shot in the water, that was incredible.”
