McKINNEY, Texas (AP) Sam Burns is the 54-hole leader - again. Local favorite Jordan Spieth saved the magic for the 18th green - again.

And the AT&T Byron Nelson is in a race to beat the notorious spring weather in Texas - again, this time with plenty of players having at least one eye on next week's PGA Championship.

Burns shot a 3-under 69 for a one-stroke lead over K.H. Lee, who had a 67 and briefly pulled even before Burns missed by inches matching Spieth's eagle on 18 and tapped in for birdie.
