Spieth birdies first two holes

IRVING, Texas – Jordan Spieth has birdied his first two holes in Saturday’s third round and is now tied for third at 5 under, three shots off the lead held by Sergio Garcia and Ryan Palmer.

Spieth rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt at the par-4 first hole. He then hit his tee shot at the par-3 second to inside three feet for an easy birdie.

Should the 17-year-old amateur win, he would become the youngest player in at least 111 years to win a PGA TOUR event. He would also be the first amateur to win on TOUR since Phil Mickelson won the 1991 Northern Telecom Open.
