For the second time in two weeks, Jordan Spieth is in position to get his first win since the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at the Dean & Deluca Invitational. A Sunday 74 doomed Spieth last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson, a week that saw the 22 year old patching together three sub-70 rounds with duct tape and chicken wire before unraveling in the final round.
Three more rounds under par this week have Spieth in a similar position, although the defending U.S. Open champio is far more in control of his game down the road in Fort Worth.

Spieth holds the 54-hole lead at 12-under par, one stroke better than Webb Simpson and Colonial Country Club member Ryan Palmer. Harris English, Martin Piller and Kyle Reifers are two strokes back of Spieth at 10-under par and Jason Dufner is alone at 9-under par. If Spieth holds serve on Sunday, it will be the first time since 2009 that the 54-hole leader closes out the tournament and Spieth’s first professional win in his home state.
