FORT WORTH, Texas – Walking up the 11th fairway it had already been an eventful day for Jordan Spieth, but even he was surprised by what happened next at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational. “He [caddie Michael Greller] didn't tell me at all until we were walking down the 11th and he said, ‘Hey, this is my last hole.’ I was kind of surprised,” Spieth said of his caddie’s decision to seek medical attention for heat exhaustion. Greller was replaced on the bag by Spieth’s physical trainer, Damon Goddard, who joined the group on the eighth tee. Spieth said Greller had told Goddard that he might not be able to caddie the entire round with the heat index soaring to 108 degrees on Saturday. Goddard has caddied
Shanshan Feng shot a 6-under 66 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the LPGA Volvik Championship. Feng is 15 under for the tournament after a bogey-free round. Lizette Salas (67) is in second place, one shot ahead of Suzann Pettersen (69). Second-round leader Sung Hyun Park (72) is tied for fourth with Jeong Eun Lee (68) at 12 under. Feng, of China, has six career victories, the most recent at last year's TOTO Japan Classic. She's finished in the top 10 three times this season, including the past two events. Feng birdied the last two holes Saturday at Travis Pointe Country Club. She took over sole possession of the lead when Salas bogeyed No. 18 moments later.

But, unfortunately for ZJ, it wasn’t to be. He followed an opening round 67 with back-to-back 75s, leaving him near the tail-end of the leaderboard. Then, to make matters worse, a picture began circulating from his third round appearing to show the aftermath of a temper tantrum from Johnson, ordinarily one of the coolest heads on tour. Johnson, a class-act in every sense of the word, didn’t pull any punches the following
