Spieth seeks rebound in form for Colonial title defence

China's Li Haotong was level with that pair after a birdie at the 12th and South Africa's Dean Burmester was on the same mark after three birdies in his opening five holes.

Leishman has never really contended in this event although he has recorded several very good rounds and in six attempts he has yet to miss a cut. This recent run of success is not a new thing for his 2017 season either, as he also notched three other top-25's this season at the Sony Open in Hawaii, the Farmers Insurance Open, and the Waste Management Open earlier this year.

Spieth will have a second shot to get back into the groove in the metroplex this week and recent history is on his side. Two-time victor here Luke Donald was struggling at two-over par for the front nine after a double bogey on the ninth.

Hogans five wins at Colonial include the first two tournaments in 1946 and 1947.

"I feel more confident tee to green right now than I did previous year, I feel more confident tee to green than I have probably in my career", Spieth said. It was Spieth's first victory since a back-nine disaster on Sunday cost him the 2016 Masters title.

Jordan Spieth, the reigning champion who was also second in 2015, is reeling after two missed cuts, Jon Rahm was MDF in his last start, while Sergio Garcia hasn't finished inside the top-20 since slipping into the Green Jacket at Augusta a matter of weeks ago.

He had last weekend off to put in some work with his team at Dallas National and the results were promising by all reports.

Spieth raised plenty of eyebrows among his colleagues and also observers a week ago in turning to a Scotty Cameron T5W Tour mallet putter for the AT & T Byron Nelson at Irving, also in Texas.

"The Pro-Am at Colonial, where amateur golfers who can't play get to play with the best in the world who can, reminds me yet again why golf is the greatest game", he said.

The Premier League club, who face Ajax in the Swedish capital, cancelled their pre-match news conference as a mark of respect. Clinching a Champions League berth could also prove crucial if United were to attract Antoine Griezmann to Old Trafford .

I doubt that effort will have any long-term effect but he wisely skipped the Nelson to regroup as he attempts to get back on the front foot in what will be his Colonial debut. I felt like it was the right decision. "Now I have that feel".

"Just trying to do too much", said Spieth.

"It's so cool", said Spieth. "I just needed to look at something different". I would want to know where to hit it and where not to leave it.

Palmer acknowledged that he endured "a rough go" for most of two months after returning in January to tour competition following an extended break to be with his wife, Jennifer, in her battle with breast cancer. "Like, 'Why in the world are you switching?' Which is probably what it was elsewhere", said Spieth, who is the defending champ at Colonial.

Among the other contenders are 2013 PGA Championship victor Jason Dufner, who has two runner-up finishes at Colonial and finished equal sixth past year.

"It would be awesome", Tothe said. "Don't tell me where the problems are".

"I think the scare is behind us", Palmer said Tuesday.

"I think the highlight of the day was on 13".
