PGA tour media tweeted that Greller was being treated at the onsite medical facility.

Greller made it through eleven holes. The change on the bag, to Spieth’s personal trainer Damon Goddard, came after the 11th hole.

On the 11th hole, while Spieth and Kelly Kraft waited to tee off, Spieth jokingly warned Goddard in the gallery that he may need to tag him in on the bag, as Greller was “struggling a little.”

“When Michael told me he had stopped sweating, I knew it was bad” said Jordan Spieth. “He told me he was going to pack it in & he’d be ok for tomorrow”

According to the PGA Tour’s meteorologist Brad Nelson, Saturday’s high temp was 96, with a heat index of 108.

Spieth carded his second-straight 68 Saturday to go into Sunday at minus-4 for the week and 5 shots back of third round leader Webb Simpson.

No details as of yet on Greller’s condition and if he will caddie on Sunday.
