Jordan Spieth finishes 16th at Byron Nelson

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Jason Day nearly dropped out of the Byron Nelson Championship before it began. He wound up winning the tournament - even though most folks likely will remember Jordan Spieth as the big winner.

Day fought through a rocky final round for a 2-over 72, but it was good enough to give the 22-year-old Australian the first win of his PGA Tour career.

Still, the 2010 Nelson will go down for the remarkable Tour debut by Spieth, a 16-year-old junior at a local high school. Spieth was within three shots of the lead on the final nine holes, but dropped back into a tie for 16th. He shot a 2-over 72 in the final round, his highest score of the tournament. His 4-under 276 was six strokes behind Day.
