Kirk holds off Spieth to win Colonial

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) As Chris Kirk waited to putt on the 18th green, Jordan Spieth was watching nearby in anticipation of a possible playoff at Colonial.

Kirk was also expecting a playoff. He just thought it would be with playing partner Brandt Snedeker and not Spieth, the local Masters champion who was within one stroke of Kirk's lead after draining a 20-foot birdie at No. 18 when finishing two groups earlier. Read More...
