Spieth hunting Texas leader Na after third round


//

Kevin Na has settled for a one-under 69 third round at the PGA event in Texas, taking a two-shot lead over a group including local favourite Jordan Spieth and 2003 US Open champion Jim Furyk.

Na recovered from a double bogey at the par-5 11th that cost him the lead, steadying himself over the final seven holes at Fort Worth to reach nine-under on Saturday.

His 62 in the second round was his third at least that low over a span of six rounds at the tournament.

Spieth and Furyk, winless since 2015, both shot 68 and were among the group at seven-under along with C.T. Pan, who was tied with Na before bogeys on the final two holes.

Pan settled for a 68 as well.

First-round leader Tony Finau (71) fell into the group at seven-under with a bogey on 18 after hitting his driver into the water.

The only remaining Australian in the field, Aaron Baddeley, is 12 shots off the pace at three-over after a round of 71.Compatriots Matt Jones (four-over) and Rod Pampling (five-over) failed to make the cut.

Birdies among the leaders were fairly scarce with most of them playing in windy conditions that have made afternoon rounds difficult all week on the cosy course made famous by Ben Hogan.

Second-round leader Jonas Blixt didn't have any, opening with a bogey on the easy par-5 first before three more in his 74. He is four shots back.

The best rounds came from players with significantly earlier tee times.

Mackenzie Hughes shot 65 to join Spieth, Furyk and company.

Charley Hoffman had the day's best round at seven-under 63 and was tied at six-under with Austin Cook, who shot 65.
