  • Jordan Spieth rallies on back nine to win by 3 at Colonial

    Jordan Spieth is Jordan Spieth again.

    Spieth won the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial Country Club in Ft. Worth, Texas, on Sunday, pulling away for a three-shot win on the back of a nine-putt final nine.

    The 22-year-old shot 5-under 30 at Hogan's Alley to post a second consecutive 5-under 65 and post a 17-under 263 tally.

    In picking up his eighth career PGA Tour win and first in his home state of Texas, Spieth needed a little good luck and relied heavily on his short game. For the week, Spieth hit just half of the fairways on the tree-lined course, requiring him to play frequently out of unfavorable rough lies. He often had to get up-and-down for key pars out of bunkers and tall grass -- something he did for 54 holes last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson but was unable to do in the final round, when he shot 74 to drop from second place into a share of 18th position.

    The putter came alive for Spieth starting at the par-3 eighth, where he made a 32-foot par putt to continue a string of pars to start the round. He went out in even-par 35 with only pars on the card.

  • Another Texas Sunday, another chance for Spieth to win

    For the second consecutive Sunday, Jordan Spieth finds himself with the final tee time in the concluding round of a PGA Tour event in Texas.

    Once again, the 22-year-old is hoping to be the lone star atop the leaderboard. ... Sorry.

    Spieth carries a one-stroke lead into the final round of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, sitting at 12-under 198 and one clear of Ryan Palmer and Webb Simpson. He's looking for his first pro win in the state of Texas, and he's looking to do it at Hogan's Alley in Ft. Worth at Colonial Country Club, where he finished runner-up last year to Chris Kirk. 

    A week ago, Spieth had to stare down the monstrous drives of Brooks Koepka in Irving at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Holding his game together with the glue of his short game, Spieth faded on Sunday, shooting a 74 that dropped him into a tie for 18th place on a course that doesn't truly suit his game.
