Happy to see Jordan playing well again! Been a rough couple of years for him but it’s great to see him back on top of his game like when he first burst on to the PGA. Proper gent too, hopefully he can close this one out.

The silver lining behind Spieths decline was not having to listen to his inane and incessant chatter with his caddy and his tediously slow play.

Watch both come to the fore if he's in contention going into the back 9.

Like him or not, Jordan Spieth adds colour (sorry, color) to the game. Plays it with a good sense of humour (sorry humor) and his behaviour (who put American spellings in my computer?) is always immaculate.

Although it is good to see Spieth striking the ball so well , the pace of play is appalling and Berger,in particular needs to be warned and penalised. Why is it necessary for three players to take more than 5 hours especially when there are few spectators and few places that need time to find a ball. Slow play is destroying professional golf for viewers.

Pace of play in pro and am arena is at times found wanting and frustrating. Hard to imagine or understand what benefit any player gets from multi practice swings, freezing over the ball and their inability to mark time when searching for a ball is astoundingly poor.

If they change the rules fair enough, but if they don't, why shouldn't he play at a pace that suits HIM, rather than the people complaining on here?I know in all sports it's the fans that bring the money, but that shouldn't mean they can dictate to these superb sportspeople.

It’s odd that a golfer can appear, and even be, unbeatable for a few years, and then be unable to win a thing. It’s very easy to try to tinker or tweak your game, which is rarely successful.

Even without tinkering with things, it’s more or less impossible to bottle your best form and keep producing it. Spieth’s best stuff comes when he is so long ridiculous amounts of long putts, and that comes and goes.

Fantastic. I look forward to chatting to you about that, but just have in the back of your mind that I am a big fan of Jordan Spieth.
He capitulated last week on sunday though? and he probably won't be making eagle from the fairway today too, but you never know.

Casey for me, but he ain't great on Sundays either. Should be a good final round featuring guys that will give us a half decent champ.

No need to come back to me mate. I sat and watched it all and it pretty much went as I expected.
Spieth has done well over the past couple of weeks but there will always be a handful of players who will beat him.
He held off Casey though so all is not bad for young man from Texas.

Golf has been ruined as a spectator sport by slow players like Speith. At least the has-been McIlroy tries to get a wiggle on. No wonder the useless BBC can't even be bothered with showing golf. The whole sport needs shaking up by having more mixed events or awarding birdies to any group that can catch and overtake the one in front.

Paul Casey and Tom Lewis making fast starts.
Max Homa also battling up there on the leaderboard, whoever he is.

Cantlay shoots 62 on Thursday and then shoots in the 70s twice which makes him dangerous today. Playing 2 average rounds usually gives you no chance of winning these things but 62 gave him a bit of leeway.
Spieth is obviously the big draw in this comp this week so let's enjoy golf.

Too close to call Jimmy. Spieth got his birdie to go level and Cantlay and Casey made bogey at about the same time.
It's not the same as when the big boys are battling it out but this is going to be hard for any of these boys to win.
hehe Freezing here too and I have not hit a ball for over a week, which is unbelieveable for me. My last swing left me lying on ice as I slipped and went home :)

If his options are anything to go by then his knowledge is questionable.

Well that’s where we differ then. I have always found him knowledgeable. Just because someone doesn’t agree with a point of view that I hold does not mean that I think I he doesn’t know his sport.

Jordan Spieth bogeys the par five 14th and that will be curtains for him.

2 rounds in the 70s over the weekend wouldn't win you a club championship at my local course in Stavanger Norway, let alone a PGA Tour event. His wait continues whilst the excellent Daniel Berger leads with 4 holes to go. He has company all over him though so this one is going to the wire, without Spieth.

I’ve seen him a few times but not much. Didn’t expect him to last this week, thought he might slide back like Streelman did.

Harrington “riddled with it”? Where do you get your information from?

Harrington says he is fine, has some mild flu symptoms, has a few days self isolation to go (in the Lodge at pebble beach), and is competing again next week.

Covid is a serious business, but hyperbole like yours does not help.

He’s he has Covid, and I am glad to hear that his symptoms are mild and that he can play next week. The “riddled with it” comment makes zero sense.
