Final Round: Spieth shoots best morning round
Jordan Spieth was finally able to string some good holes together at the British Open on Sunday, shooting a three-under 68 at Royal Troon in Scotland to avoid an 11th-straight round in a major without breaking par.
Spieth finished the year's third major at two-over par 286 and was tied for 33rd at the time.
Rickie Fowler, meanwhile, saw another tournament come and go without a legitimate chance to win his first career major championship, ending the Open at six over and tied with fellow U.S. Olympian golfer Matt Kuchar.
World No. 1 Jason Day was even par on the front nine and was one over and tied for 28th with Justin Rose and Lee Westwood.
Rory McIlroy birdied three of his first seven holes and was at three under, tied for seventh with Zach Johnson and Charl Schwartzel.
Masters champion Danny Willett continued to struggle, finishing at seven over. Meanwhile, Jim Furyk shot a four-over 75 to finish at nine over at the Open.
Leader Henrik Stenson (12 under) and Phil Mickelson (11 under) will tee off at 9:35 a.m. EST.
