Spieth upbeat after Byron Nelson collapse


World number two Jordan Spieth was far from downbeat after another final-round collapse saw him fall from second to equal 18th at the AT&T Byron Nelson on Sunday.

Spieth - seeking his first win on the PGA Tour since the Tournament of Champions in January - was in touching distance at Byron Nelson as he entered the final round just two strokes off the lead.

But a final round of four-over-par 74, which included six bogeys, ended any hopes he had of winning the title - eventually taken by Sergio Garcia, who prevailed in a play-off against Brooks Koepka.

However, Spieth insisted he was not going to let one bad day get him down, adding he felt good over the ball.

"I hit really solid swings," Spieth told CBS. "I was aggressive through the ball today. I wasn't hesitant at the ball, which is what I was the last couple of days trying to guide shots. I put nice, fluid solid swings on the golf ball.

"I don't know exactly what happened. A break here, break there, you know, gust of wind here or there that just let it push the balls to roll into tough locations. I felt like I deserved a better score today than I did yesterday and that's just how golf is sometimes.

"Funny how it works. Yesterday, it was about as uncomfortable as I've ever felt and shot three under. Today, I felt like I kind of fixed it a little on the range. I felt really good about it on the golf course today. I just didn't score well."
