After a 4-under-par round of 66 on Saturday pushed him to 12 under for the tournament, Spieth can become the first Travelers champion to lead all four rounds since Peter Jacobsen in 2003. He's at the top of the leaderboard.
Spieth is looking for his 10th tour win and second this season after a victory in February at Pebble Beach.
"It was a tougher day today with the wind", Broadhurst said.
Weekley, 43, is grizzled, irreverent in an interview and hasn't won since the Colonial Invitational four years ago.
Spieth leads by one at 12-under heading to the final round in Connecticut, Leishman seven shots behind but no doubt harbouring memories of 2012.
Spieth responded with birdies from eight feet at the 10th and half that distance at the par-3 11th to reach 11-under, jumping back in front as Hoffman made double bogey at the par-3 16th and closed bogey-bogey. With two bogeys cancelling them out on the first and eighth. Tomorrow it doesn't change.
"I really do think I saved two shots around the greens there". Well, they both like to fish and they're both well-liked.
Rory McIlroy remained at even par.
Garcia (70) was on course for the lead but bogeys on the 14th and 17th set the Masters champion back before he finished with his fourth birdie. "It's nothing to do with the putter".
"If I just keep doing the same things I'm doing, hopefully I'll have a chance tomorrow", Berger said.
Throughout the morning, McIlroy practiced and putted as he experimented with different clubs.
"I've always felt comfortable on this golf course", Merritt said. "Make a couple putts here and there and you never know". "Yeah, that's a lot of washing".
Rory McIlroy, who is also playing in the event for the first time, shot a 67 after missing the cut last week at the US Open. So how did he suddenly put himself in this position? "He's not afraid to do so", Spieth said about Weekley.
The idea seems like a good one since McIlroy has been dominating every other aspect of the game. That's what everybody out here, that's what we strive to do. "I didn't feel like it was harder than yesterday".
ROGERS, Ark. - Sung Hyun Park almost matched the course record with an 8-under 63 on Friday to take the first-round lead in the NW Arkansas Championship. What will it take to win?
"I'm going to go out there and play solid golf", Spieth said. "We know it can yield some ridiculous numbers with Jim (Furyk's) unbelievable 58 previous year". None of that might have happened though if his mother hadn't had an unusual job.
