Jordan Spieth, facing questions from the media for the first time since his collapse at the Masters: "The 2016 Masters will always come back up. It will always come back up…I'm not taking it very hard. I've got ladies in grocery stores coming up there, putting their hand on me, going, 'really praying for you. How are you doing?' I'm like, my dog didn't die. I'm doing okay. I'll survive. It happens. Again, unfortunate timing. I laugh about it now, I really do."
