Spieth takes command at AT&T

Jordan Spieth shot a seven-under par 65 on Saturday to open up a six-shot lead ahead of the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Spieth needed only 10 putts coming home as he recorded five birdies, including three in the last four, as he pulled away from joint overnight leaders Jason Day and Derek Fathauer to finish at 17 under.

Brandt Snedeker is his nearest rival after shooting a 67 to end the day on eleven under par with US Open champion Dustin Johnson tied for third one shot further back.

Johnson made three birdies in his last six holes and saved par after hitting one into the Pacific Ocean on the 18th as he shot an eventful 66.

“Those putts scare me,” Spieth said when asked about Pebble Beach’s slick greens.

Snedeker, who is attempting to win at Pebble Beach for a third time in five years, will be in the final group with Spieth on Sunday, along with their amateur partners. Spieth is partnering country singer Jake Owen, while Snedeker is playing with businessman Toby Wilt.
