Finau leads Colonial

FORT WORTH, Texas — Tony Finau shot a 6-under 64 to take a one-shot lead over local favorite Jordan Spieth and Roger Sloan at Colonial on Thursday.

Defending champion Justin Rose, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 3, shot 74 as all five of the top 10s playing Hogan’s Alley finished over par.

Finau hasn’t finished better than 60th in three tournaments since tying for fifth at the Masters. He had five birdies over seven holes and avoided a second bogey with a chip-in at the par-3 16th.

Spieth is trying to end a victory drought that’s approaching two years for the three-time major winner.
