16-year-old Jordan Spieth tied for 7th at Byron Nelson

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Making the cut at the Byron Nelson Championship never was the goal for Jordan Spieth. The 16-year-old insists he's here to win - and he's certainly put himself in contention.

The high school junior shot a 3-under 67 Saturday, his best round yet. That dropped him to 6 under for the tournament, giving him a legitimate chance to win his PGA Tour debut.

Speith trails leader Jason Day by six strokes after three rounds.

Spieth is from Dallas and is the sixth-youngest player to make a cut. The best finish for someone so young was Italy's Matteo Manassero, tying for 13th at the 2009 British Open.
