Spieth out of contention, 'very disappointed'


IRVING, Texas – After a third-round 3-over 73 that left him 10 shots off the Byron Nelson Championship lead, Jordan Spieth knows exactly what his goal is for Sunday.

“Fifty-nine,” he said with a smile.

The truth is, even that probably wouldn’t be enough to win.

Following last week’s T-4 result, Spieth finds himself out of contention at his hometown event.

“Very disappointed,” he said after a round that included three birdies, four bogeys and a double. “It's tough to swallow today's round. We had good conditions and I was confident going in and had a good warm-up session this morning so just have to sit back and work on a few things. I don't need to think too much about it, just come out tomorrow and trying and low early and hopefully the wind picks up.”
