Jordan Spieth Plays Nelson and Graduates High School Today.
Jordan Spieth could have quite the day to remember today.
Spieth, just 17 years old, made the cut as an amateur at last year’s Byron Nelson and he did it again this year. Today, Spieth is set to graduate from high school following his third round.
“Right after the round… I’m going to shoot over there as quickly as possible,” Spieth said of graduation. “I don’t know how long it usually lasts.”
Through nine holes of his third round, Spieth is T13 and two-under. A few more birdies and he’ll be graduating tonight and starting in the top 10 tomorrow morning.
