May 25, 2010

High school student Jordan Spieth shot a 3-under 67 to reach 6-under 204 at the Byron Nelson Championship on Saturday in Irving, Texas, and has a legitimate chance to win in his PGA Tour debut.

Spieth, 16, is tied for seventh, six shots behind leader Jason Day.

"I know the pins are going to be the toughest pins I've ever experienced in my life, but I'm confident," Spieth said. "I'm going to start firing because I have got nothing to lose, nothing to hold back, might as well try and make a run."
