Fort Worth's Chad Campbell comes within two strokes of course record at Dean & DeLuca Invitational Sunday
Jordan Spieth birdied his final three holes, chipping in from behind the 17th green and closing with a 34-foot putt, and shot a 5-under 65 on Sunday to win at Colonial for his first home state victory.
At 17-under 263, Spieth finished three strokes ahead of Harris English at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational. Colonial member Ryan Palmer and Webb Simpson tied for third.
Morning rains delayed Sunday’s start of the final round until 10:19 a.m. at Colonial Country Club. Golfers competed in threesomes, rather than twosomes as originally planned. In addition, players began their rounds at No. 1 and No. 10.
The top three golfers on the leader board began play at 12:20 p.m. on the first tee: Spieth (12-under-par), Colleyville resident and Colonial member Palmer (11-under) and Webb Simpson (11-under), the 2012 U.S. Open champion.
Just after 4 p.m. Sunday, Spieth (through 14 holes) and Harris English (through 15) were tied for the lead 14-under par. Kyle Reifers was 13 under, and Colonial member Ryan Palmer was at 12 under.
Colleyville resident Chad Campbell shot 63 on Sunday to temporarily move into the top 10, but was well back at 8 under for the tournament.
