Spieth stays in contention at Nelson

Large crowds followed Jordan Spieth during his Friday round at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship as he made the turn at 4-under.

Marshals reminded the six-deep spectators at the No. 1 tee box, Spieth’s 10th hole, that no pictures are allowed.

Still, six cell phones were spotted as Spieth teed off No. 1. Hundreds of spectators ringed the No. 1 green.

Spieth’s drive actually glanced off a TV photographer in the group headed toward the No. 1 green, but no harm no foul.

Thursday’s rains have still had an effect on the course, so players are again allowed to improve their lie — lift, clean, and place.
