Leishman fires career-low 61 to lead Byron Nelson


Australia's Marc Leishman had two eagles in a 10-under par 61 on Thursday to take a three-shot lead in the US PGA Tour's Byron Nelson tournament.

Hometown favorite Jordan Spieth found improvement with a solid 66 but was still eight strokes off the pace on a low-scoring day.

Marc Leishman had it all going Thursday with a 10-under 61.

Speaking after the round to The Golf Channel, Leishman said: "I didn't even think about 59, every other time I have been close to it I have thought about it".

The 24-year-old had three birdies and three bogeys and is in danger of going another year without surpassing his best Nelson finish - a tie for 16th when he was a 16-year-old high school junior in 2010.

That regulation was upheld by the Supreme Court in 1991 but never fully implemented. This shows the dishonesty of the Planned Parenthood's 3% talking point.

"It's awesome", said Wise, who was coming off a career-best PGA Tour finish of second two weeks ago at Quail Hollow which he said gave him "just a ton of self-belief".

"I just pulled it", Spieth said.

Leishman broke the 36-hole record of 12-under 128 achieved on six prior occasions at the tournament's former home of TPC Four Seasons, including twice by Tiger Woods and most recently by Jason Kokrak previous year. Spaun had six birdies in a span of seven holes for a 30 on his second nine - the front nine on the undulating layout with no trees or water hazards a few miles south of downtown Dallas.

Leishman said there was a big difference in him shooting a four-over 76 in the final round of last week's Players Championship and his play in Dallas.

"I putted a lot better today as far as the way it looked and it was really frustrating - kind of laziness - to miss a tap-in and on the last hole. Hopefully I can keep that up over the last two days". I got on the course and just forgot about it yesterday.

He signed legislation previous year aimed at cutting off government money from the group and others that perform abortions. More than 200 congressional Republicans sent letters to HHS Secretary Alex Azar urging him to take the regulatory action.

Majority "have been very proactive about treating their symptoms and only needing a place to cool off", DFR said in a news release.

Spieth was hoping for the teeth on one of his home courses, but couldn't take advantage of his experience with it.

Spain's Sergio Garcia was unable to muster a similar run.

For Leishman, it was the long ninth hole when he hit a 3-wood to try to land short of a fairway bunker 340 yards away but "went straight in it".

"He's a solid player for I heard this morning he's only 21".

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
