When it was revealed Kevin Kisner was going to make his debut in the booth on NBC's coverage of the PGA Tour, we knew it wasn't long until the veteran was going to have a memorable moment. 

That came during the coverage of The Sentry, won by Chris Kirk, whereby Kisner took issue with Jordan Spieth and his putting. 

The moment in question came during the third round when Spieth was toiling over a short putt. 

If we are going to get specific, it was three feet. Kisner informed us on the broadcast this is a distance Tour pros have a 90 per cent success rate from. 

Kisner is known as a matchplay specialist. 

He said during the broadcast: "I'm watching this distance — this is always the distance I make him putt when we play matches because you never know what you’re going to get. 

"He's spent more time on this 3-footer than he does on 25-footers. If I was going to help him, I'd tell him to speed it up a little bit on these and just knock it in. He knows how to make these."

Spieth subsequently missed, then mumbled a few lines to his caddie Michael Greller about the direction of the grain and the wind. 

Kisner then added: "That's 3 feet, Jordan. Just knock it in, bud. Ninety-nine percent on Tour."

Remind yourself of the moment here:

Spieth has now responded in an appearance on Sirius XM PGA Tour Radio. 

He was asked: "Jordan, one of the other highlights of the week was we had Kevin Kisner in the booth, your good buddy. I know you were playing, so you probably didn’t get to hear much of what he had to say. He did take a couple little shots at you here and there.

"But what are you hearing about Kis' debut in the booth?"

Spieth's response?

"Yeah, he actually came up and told me the shots he was taking at me while I was warming up on Sunday," he said.  "Which is like 101, don't do that. 

"So I was like, you're a d---, please leave."

There's more. Spieth was shocked by Kisner's age.

Kisner's overall performance went down well with golf fans. 

NBC are yet to announce a full-time replacement for the role of NBC analyst after Paul Azinger was given his marching orders. 

Former European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley has also been trialled. 

He won't be in the booth this week as he is in the field for the Sony Open
