Spieth seizes share of 54-hole lead

LOS ANGELES: Jordan Spieth roared home with five birdies in his final seven holes on Saturday to shoot a five-under 67 grab a share of the lead with Matt Wallace heading into the final round of the Texas Open.

Spieth has won 11 times on the PGA Tour but is hoping to end a lengthy dry spell dating back over three years to the 2017 British Open.

His game has been trending in the right direction with the Masters looming at Augusta National next week. The 27-year old American highlighted that with a stellar back nine to get to 12-under 204 and a tie with England's four-time European Tour winner Wallace, who also shot a 67.

“I left the ball in the right spots when it was missed and really, I did a great job managing today,” he said. AFP
