CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) Jordan Spieth hit a wedge to 4 feet for birdie on the final hole for a 7-under 63 and a one-stroke lead Thursday in the Travelers Championship.

Making his first appearance at TPC River Highlands, the 23-year-old Texan had eight birdies and a bogey in his afternoon round after tying for 35th last week in the U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

Johnson Wagner and Connecticut native Brett Stegmaier each shot 64 in the morning.
