Kevin Kisner wins US Tour event at Fort

Worth after hat-trick of birdies

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Kevin Kisner birdied the first three holes on the back nine to take the lead and held on to win at the DEAN and DELUCA Invitational despite a Sunday charge by defending champion Jordan Spieth.
Kisner shot a 4-under 66 to finish at 10-under 270, including a clutch par save on the 18th hole after a wayward tee shot and an approach that was off the back  of the green and well below the hole. He finished one stroke ahead of Spieth, Sean O'Hair and Spaniard Jon Rahm.
Spieth shot a bogey-free 65, and was standing on a chair to see over the crowd at the 18th green when Kisner putted up the mound to 5 feet of the cup and then made the winning putt. That came right after Rahm's 10-foot birdie chance skirted just to the left of the hole.
For the 33-year-old Kisner it was his second US Tour victory in 148 starts since his debut in 2011. He was a runner-up twice this year, and six times over past three seasons.
