IRVING, Texas – With just five holes left in his round, Jordan Spieth has posted 20 birdies this week. That’s the second-highest total among all players in the field this week (Jason Day has 22 birdies as he plays his final hole).
Unfortunately, the 17-year-old amateur has negated all those red numbers with four double bogeys and 12 bogeys. That’s why he’s even par for the tournament, which leaves him four shots off the lead.
Still, it’s an impressive total for Spieth, who missed his high school graduation ceremony. Birdies have been in short supply this weekend, but Spieth has nine birdies thus far in the final two rounds.
