Kisner Holds Off Spieth's Charge At Colonial

Kevin Kisner birdied the first three holes on the back nine to take the lead and held on to win at the Colonial after defending champion Jordan Spieth's Sunday charge in Fort Worth, Texas.

Kisner shot 4-under 66 to finish at 10-under 270, including a clutch par save on the 18th hole after a wayward tee shot and an approach that was off the back side of the green and well below the hole. He finished a stroke ahead of Spieth, Sean O'Hair and Jon Rahm.

Spieth shot a bogey-free 65, and was standing on a chair to see over the crowd at the 18th green when Kisner putted up the mound to 5 feet of the cup, then made the winning putt. That came right after Rahm's 10-foot birdie chance...
