Golf - Spieth keeps PGA Travelers lead with late birdie binge

- Jordan Spieth birdied three of the last four holes, sinking a 20-footer at the 18th, to take a one-stroke lead into Sunday's final round of the Travelers Championship. Spieth, the 2015 Masters and US Open champion, shook off back-to-back bogeys at 13 and 14 with a sizzling finish, curling in his final putt for a four-under par 66 to reach 12-under at TPC River Highlands near Hartford, Connecticut. Boo Weekley, who hasn't won a PGA title since 2013, fired a 65 to stand second a stroke behind with Daniel Berger third nine-under. Taiwan's C.T. Pan fired the day's low round, a 64, to join England's Paul Casey and Sweden's David Lingmerth in fourth on eight under.
