Jordan Spieth was eight adrift in his hometown tournament, which moved the par-71 links-style Trinity Forest after 35 years at TPC Four Seasons in nearby Irving. Defending champion Billy Horschel shot 68.
Spaun teed off on 10 and after two birdies and a bogey in his first nine he birdied six holes coming in, including four in a row from the second through the fifth and the seventh and eighth.
CHASING: J.J. Spaun and Jimmy Walker are T-2 and three shots back at 7 under.
That's what Spieth figures he needs since he's more familiar with wind and firmer greens on a course named for the 6,000 acres of thick trees surrounding the undulating layout a few miles south of downtown Dallas.

"Obviously really frustrated missing two putts, one inside a foot and one inside 3 feet, with all the progress I made in my putting". "This course has enough teeth where you can't just bomb driver everywhere".
"I would've been this place's harshest critic just because I love that other place at Las Colinas", Leishman said.
"Looking at the forecast, I don't think that will happen again", Spieth said.
For Leishman, it was the long ninth hole when he hit a 3-wood to try to land short of a fairway bunker 340 yards away but "went straight in it".
"I finish 16th tomorrow and people are going to say, 'What's wrong?'" said Spieth, a three-time major victor. "Normally I can't hit my driver anywhere close to that".
