Jordan Spieth Holds Onto one-shot lead at the Masters

Jordan Spieth Continues to Hold one-shot lead at the Masters

Jordan Spieth shot a third-round 73 on Saturday to take one-stroke lead over former LSU golfer Smylie Kaufman into Sunday’s final round of the Masters at famed Augusta National Golf Club.

Spieth, who won the tournament last year, heads into the final round at 3-under par for the tournament. He is the first defending champion to hold the 54-hole lead since 1954.

Bernhard Langer has turned back the clock at age 58 this week, and he is tied for third place with Hideki Matsuyama – two shots behind Spieth.

Rory McIlroy was in Saturday’s final pairing with Spieth, but the Irishman struggled to a 5-over-par 77 in the third round to fall out of the top 10.

The top 10 players on the leaderboard can be seen below.

The final round is scheduled for Sunday, and can be seen on CBS beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern. You can begin watching featured groups on CBSSports.com at 10:30 a.m.

Jordan Spieth Cracks Driver, Will Play Masters with Replacement Driver

Jordan Spieth Cracks Driver, Will Play Masters with Replacement Driver. No problem with switch Spieth says.

Jordan Spieth will begin his Masters title defense without the driver that won two majors in 2015.

Speaking at the Golf Writers Assocation of America’s dinner, Spieth said he cracked his Titleist 915 D2 driver on Wednesday while practicing at Augusta National and will play the Masters with a replacement driver. 

He also said at the dinner that the new driver is better than the old one, but Spieth has had the 915 D2 in play since his 2014 Australian Open win. What has he accomplished in the 17 months since? Seven wins worldwide, including two majors. 

The defending champ was grinding on the range until late Wednesday evening trying to find the right combination in his replacement driver. He’s got until Thursday morning to sort things out: He tees off at 9:48 a.m.
