Jordan Spieth continued his fine form by extending his lead at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am during Saturday’s third round.
The three-time Major champion took a one-shot lead into moving day where he had to express a lot of composure to remain in front.
Spieth battled through the California course and signed off with a one-under-par 71 to move to 13 under for the week.
An eagle on the 16th hole all but saved his round after struggling on the back nine particularly where he dropped three shots before restoring his round.
Spieth holes out … again, and he leads by 2.

Spieth will take a two-shot lead into Sunday’s final round with Nate Lashley, Tom Hoge, Russell Knox, Patrick Cantlay and Daniel Berger all on 11 under par.
Jason Day, Brian Stuard, Maverick McNealy and Paul Casey also remain in contention to win and will start the final round three strokes behind Spieth and in T7.
South Africa’s Branden Grace dropped a shot on Saturday and had to settle for a one-over-par 73 to end the day on three under par.
