Spieth Takes FedEx Cup Lead

A late bogey cost Jordan Spieth the chance for at least a playoff at the Colonial in Fort Worth on Sunday, but his second-place finish still propelled the world’s No. 2 player into the lead of the FedEx Cup standings.

Spieth, who has played in 14 events, has 2,326 points to date, 430 ahead of second-place Jimmy Walker, who had led the chase for most of the year.

Spieth is the first player to crack 2,000 points this year. He has two wins and eight Top 10 finishes.

Colonial winner Chris Kirk rose 39 spots to No. 14 from No. 53, rising to No. 14 overall with 1,053 points.

Colonial runner-ups Jason Bohn jumped from 59th to 36th, and Brandt Snedeker from 18th to 9th.
