Jordan ends round in a six ball

All set up for grandstand finish - but maybe on Monday

Jordan ends round in a six ball

'I'm running!' Jordan gets his third round done before nightfall.

Jordan Spieth featured in a six-ball on his last hole at the Abu Dhabi Championship, as he became one of the few golfers to finish a fog-interrupted third round.

He is still three shots behind the five players who are sharing the lead, none of whom have completed their third rounds. So he will get a chance to rest up tomorrow morning before the final round kicks off.

He completed his third round with a 68 that included four birdies, and no bogeys.

The top five include Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Ian Poulter, Joost Luiten and Branden Grace, who are all at ten under. But they must all return early in the morning to finish their rounds, which must be a distraction that Jordan could benefit from.

"I'm struggling with my alignment on the greens, and with my wedges, so I'm not getting those extra chances but if I have a crazy round tomorrow I have a chance," Spieth told reporters.

"I haven't played a six-ball before. We didn't really know what to do," Spieth said.

"We were all very, very relieved to have that happen. It saved us five-plus hours in arriving to the course tomorrow."

Meanwhile the top five are variously on the ninth through to 16th, so there’s a fair amount of play to happen before the final round can even begin.
