FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Jordan Spieth has always considered Colonial a hometown tournament as well. He also has had much more success at Hogan's Alley than at the Byron Nelson, where he played his first PGA Tour event as a 16-year-old high school junior.

"I've been coming out here since I was 6, 7 years old, too. It was always a fun couple of weeks," Spieth said Wednesday. "School was letting out into summertime and the PGA rolled through Dallas and Fort Worth way back when I was just falling in love with the game. ... Both places have the extra aura, too."

Now 24 and with three majors among his 11 PGA Tour wins, Spieth has won only once in his home state of Texas. That was two years ago at Colonial, where he has four top-10 finishes in five starts. He was the runner-up in 2015 and last year.
