Spieth reached the top of the world golf rankings in 2015, the year he won the U.S. Open and Masters tournaments, and is the defending champion of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial in Fort Worth, his first professional win in Texas.
Having picked up another shot at 15, he rolled in a 16-footer for birdie at the par-three 17th, and left himself inches for a birdie at 18.
While Spieth was birdieing the first two holes of his third to move to 12 under, Fathauer and Day were simultaneously faltering.
Jordan Spieth shot 65 Saturday and looks like a near-lock to win this thing at 17 under, building his lead to 6 shots over Brandt Snedeker.
Yeah, Timberlake can play, and he put his game on full display on Saturday at Pebble Beach in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
"I was just a little frustrated at the end and I didn't appreciate the language that was used and just some scums that just, it just bothered me", he said.
"So I turned around and one of them dropped an F-bomb in front of three kids, so I felt the need to turn around and tell them that that wasn't right", Spieth said at his press conference Wednesday. "Made some nice clutch par saves in the midst of the birdie putts".
"But, you know what, I think with how I played on the back side, I feel good about going into tomorrow and trying to build momentum for next week's tournament".
Round 1 of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, suspended Thursday because of unplayable conditions caused by rain and wind, resumed Friday at 8:30 a.m. PT, 90 minutes later than scheduled, this time because of fog.
Dahmen's opening round at Spyglass Hill Golf Course included seven birdies and three bogeys.
