IRVING, Texas – Local teenage amateur Jordan Spieth is a popular figure this week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, just like last year when he made the cut as a 16-year-old.
Now a year older, Spieth is looking for bigger things this year. “I want to win,” he said after finishing his first 36 holes just five shots off the lead. He just teed off in Saturday’s third round.
A very rough and unofficial estimate of his gallery size? About 2,000 people.
Here’s a look at the crowd at the opening hole as Spieth prepared for his approach shot.
