On his first tee shot of the day, Jordan Spieth quickly took a hand of his driver and acted as if it was going to be a poor shot.

It went 343 yards down the center of the fairway. His approach shot went to 7 feet, 11 inches. He drained the eagle putt, and his wild round was underway.

There was no shortage of excitement during his roller coaster third round, but he certainly kept fans on their toes with essentially every shot. Spieth shot 2-under 69 and sits at 7 under for the tournament, which he won in 2015.

Also that year? Spieth won two majors and the FedEx Cup.

His round Saturday consisted of the opening eagle and then five birdies and five bogeys. After each of his first four bogeys, he followed them up with birdies. The only hole he didn’t? The 18th, when he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker for the first time this week (he was 8 of 8).

If Spieth were able to win Sunday, it would be the second event he has won twice, joining the John Deere Classic. He’ll be in the final pairing with Schenk.
