John Maginnes of the PGA TOUR Network said of 16-year-old Jordan Spieth’s third round: "That’s a good solid round for a PGA TOUR pro. It’s nothing short of miraculous for a 16-year-old kid."
Speith and Corey Pavin will play together in the fifth-to-last pairing of the final round Sunday at the Byron Nelson in Dallas. Both players are at 6 under, six strokes behind leader Jason Day.
“I think I can make a run,” Spieth said. “I know starting the entire week, y’all gave me odds like 1,000 to 1 or a million to 1. No one expected me to make the cut, and I guess I have an outside chance. If I get the right conditions out there, the wind starts to pick up and I start just droppin’ bombs from all over the place, it could happen, but I’m stressing a lot on the start tomorrow, getting in the crowd early, because I need the crowd behind me to make a run like that.”
It'll be the second day in a row that Spieth is paired with a 50-year-old as Tom Pernice, Jr. was with him Saturday.
By the way, Pernice has daughters who are 15 and 16...
