Jordan Spieth had the worst day a golfer could have, building a decisive lead that put him in position to easily win the Masters before he threw it all away on a single hole AND had to present winner Danny Willett with the green jacket. It was a stunning collapse.
Stephen Curry is a big Spieth fan and a fellow Under Armour athlete. When Andre Iguodala ran onto the court to tell him before Curry played the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, Curry literally collapsed upon hearing the news. You can even see him shove Iguodala as if he's joking before realizing that he wasn't at all.

Spieth's collapse brings us to a troublesome realization, though: Under Armour athletes aren't having a great 2016 when it comes to winning championships. First it was Cam Newton in the Super Bowl, and now Spieth had a terrible final Sunday at the Masters. Is the curse real? Will HBO cancel Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's show, Ballers? Will Bryce Harper collapse in the World Series later this year? Will Raymond Felton blow the NBA Finals for the Mavericks? (What do you mean the Mavericks aren't making the Finals?)
Newton and Spieth isn't enough of a data set to form a concrete conclusion ... it's just a troubling trend.
