Jordan Spieth Running Away with Hero Challenge

While Tiger Woods was throwing up, Jordan Spieth was throwing down the gauntlet to the rest of the world as the best golfer to start the 2014-2015 season on Saturday.

The 21-year-old Spieth fired a 9-under 63, capped by a 50-foot birdie putt, to drop to 20-under through 54 holes at the Hero World Challenge in Windhaven, Florida.

Woods, the event’s host, shot his best round of the weekend, a 69, but remains both sick and in last place.

Spieth heads into Sunday’s final round seven shots ahead of both Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson, who are tied at 13-under.

Spieth is looking for his second win in a week after taking the crown at the Australian Open six days ago. He had nine birdies on Saturday.

Bradley fired a 65 on Saturday, and is one of just five players at least 10 strokes under par. Patrick Reed is fourth at 11-under, with Justin Rose fifth at 10-under.
