Trio of 65s lead at Colonial

Derek Fathauer, J.T. Poston and Kelly Craft all finished tied atop the leaderboard after shooting 5-under 65s on Thursday, while three more players are within a stroke of the leaders and 20 players find themselves within three strokes.

So, how about a plaid jacket on Sunday?

"To see them win in the fashion they did, it was incredible", said Rahm, who practised with that team while in school.

But the reasons health insurance would be less expensive for some aren't much to cheer about, the budget report makes clear. But reconciliation bills must meet several conditions and one of those is that they may not cause higher deficits.

VIRGINIA WATER, England - Johan Carlsson shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the BMW PGA Championship, the European Tour's flagship event at Wentworth Club's revamped West Course. "So it would be awesome to be part of that group". Spieth is one of the best players in the world but hadn't won a pro tournament in his home state until a year ago at Colonial when he finished at 17-under 263, three shots ahead of fellow American Harris English. "Hopefully I can overcome that and play a good couple rounds and get there". You know how players always use the saying "It fits my eye"? He finished T44th in his first appearance here, and struggled to a T57 the next year, still making the cut nonetheless. He was impressed with Rahm's ability to cut the doglegs with his powerful driver.

Jordan Spieth hasn't been terribly reliable lately, but he has a great history at this course. Two things: Steady erosions in both his iron play and his putting. I putted it nice, too. "It's a good mix".

While Spieth will try to join Ben Hogan as the only players to win consecutive years at Colonial, two-time champion Phil Mickelson (2000, 2008) is back for the first time since missing the cut in 2010. He finished with three straight birdies to end the week three clear of Harris English. Those who can shape their shots could go low this week. He is experimenting with a smaller square grip on his putter. Well, I guess we should say he has not missed a two-round cut as he was purged after the third round of The Players Championship a few weeks ago following a ghastly 82 on Saturday at TPC Sawgrass. "I got up early at 5 a.m. and went through my stretching routine and stuff and then heard about the delay, so sat around for an hour and a half, got all stiff again, so that part didn't help".

After switching putters last weekend, he'll return to the old putter this weekend. "Just cleaning out my downstairs room and just brought it out".

Kraft, runner-up at Pebble Beach this year, had five birdies without a bogey, his 40-footer at 16 giving him a share of the lead.

Only 22 of the 83 overtime games played over the past five years went beyond 10 minutes (average time is 7 minutes, 43 seconds). Now, teams will be able to carry a full 90-man roster through the final preseason game and then cut down directly to 53.

Finau will need a good week on the greens - his stats this year are very bad - but consecutive 65s at the Byron Nelson were a welcome shot in the arm on that front as he ended the week 38th in Putts Per GIR and steadily improved over four rounds in Strokes Gained: Putting. It was his best score of his nine Colonial rounds.
