Spieth, English, Bae featured grouping at Byron Nelson


IRVING, Texas – If Jordan Spieth can get into contention in all of these tournaments he’s never played before, just imagine what he can do at one where he’s a grizzled veteran.

Spieth will make his fourth career appearance at the Byron Nelson Championship this week, where he first finished in a share of 16th place as a 16-year-old four years ago.

He will play in a featured group alongside Harris English and defending champion Sang-Moon Bae at 8:40 a.m. ET on Thursday, starting on the 10th tee.

Just in front of that group will be another high-powered trio consisting of Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner and Justin Leonard.

Recent Players Championship winner Martin Kaymer will be grouped with three-time winner Jimmy Walker and Brandt Snedeker at 1:40 p.m. off the first tee.

Just in front of that group will be the trio of Matt Kuchar, Gary Woodland and Keegan Bradley.
