Spieth opens 'home game' with even-par 70

RSS

IRVING, TexasJordan Spieth opened with an even-par 70 at the Byron Nelson Championship, which had him pleased in breezy conditions.

“I didn't hit many fairways, but I putted well and hung in there and had a couple of key up-and-downs in the middle of the round to keep it going,” he explained. “Ultimately there may be a low score from this afternoon, but I don't think there will be too many of them, so I should still be in it.”

Calling this event his “home game,” Spieth wants to put on a show for the local crowd.

“I always want to play well at this event,” he said. “I put a lot of expectations on myself for this week because I've played well here in the past, and it's a tournament close to my heart, and I would love to make a run at it.

“I don't look at that negatively. I think it's a positive thing, and the fact that there will be big crowds tomorrow and hopefully Saturday and Sunday and I can feed off that. Everyone is just so awesome out here. To see old friends that have come out today to support me, I can take a lot of positives from that.”
