Rd. 3 update: Palmer maintains lead

IRVING, Texas -- Texas native Ryan Palmer is hanging tough in windy conditions while local favorite, teenage amateur Jordan Spieth, is dropping back.

Although Palmer is having trouble finding fairways -- he hit just two of his first 10 on Saturday -- he's even par on his round and 8 under for the tournament. That gives him a two-shot lead over playing partner Sergio Garcia, who suffered two bogeys on his front nine and has yet to post a birdie today.

Nick Watney, Ryuji Imada and Joe Ogilvie are tied for third at 4 under.

Spieth, the 17-year-old from Dallas, has had a rollercoaster round that includes two double bogeys and three bogeys. He's been able to minimize some of the damage with four brides, but he's still 3 over on his round.

Spieth's high school graduation starts at 5 p.m. ET. He's on the 17th hole now, so he likely will not miss much of the ceremony.

Just eight sub-par rounds have been posted thus far, with Arjun Atwal's 67 the low round in the clubhouse.
