Sporting KC shuts out Montreal

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Jordan Spieth made a 12-foot par putt on the 18th hole to complete another bogey-free round and join Martin Kaymer in a share of the lead Saturday in The Players Championship.

Spieth was even more impressive as he got into trouble off the tee late in the third round. The 20-year-old Texan missed his last four fairways and saved par each time for a 1-under 71. Not since Greg Norman won The Players in 1994 has anyone played the opening three rounds without a bogey.

Kaymer missed a par putt from just inside 10 feet on the 18th hole for a 72.

They were at 12-under 204, three shots ahead of former Players winner Sergio Garcia (69) and John Senden (68).
