3 Consecutive years for Dallas resident Jordan Spieth to finish first or second at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational: a victory last year (2016), bracketed by runner-up finishes in 2017 and 2015.

Spieth played the final seven-plus holes with a stand-in caddie after his regular looper Michael Greller fell ill in the oppressive heat and humidity. However, Kisner held his nerve to finish top of the pile, rounding off his own 66 with a superb two-putt from off the back of the 18th green as playing partner Rahm failed to convert an accurate approach into a birdie that would have forced a playoff. "Can't ask for much more than a 65 on the last day to come from behind". Spieth's personal trainer, Damon Goddard carried the Texan's bag for the rest of the round.

Lee started the third round in a tie for first but carded a one under par 69 to drop to a share of second alongside Englishman Paul Casey. He also just missed a 12-footer at No. 9, and a 25-footer at the 446-yard 12th hole rolled over the left edge of the cup. He had eight birdies his first 14 holes Sunday, on track to challenge the Colonial course record of 61 and maybe even a 59, before a bogey and three closing pars.

He birdied No. 5 and then came close again with his birdie try from 12 feet on 9. Kisner hit a similar drive, and also saved par. He followed with another bogey at 15 when he drove into the rough and then hit into a greenside bunker, and did the same at No. 18.

No one got within a shot. "I probably got the better part of the draw with the weather with the wind laying down this afternoon and picking up yesterday afternoon, so it's been a nice two days for me".

Simpson (71) bogeyed the 18th hole to finish alone in fifth and Danny Lee of New Zealand (70), the second-round co-leader, ended up alone in sixth at 7 under.

Feng on top: Shanshan Feng shot a 6-under 66 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the LPGA Volvik Championship.
