Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are good friends, but early in the final round they're going toe-to-toe at the Dell Technologies Championship.

Spieth opened his round with a birdie at No. 1, then laced his approach at the par-5 second to eight feet, and brushed home the eagle putt. The Texan wouldn't be finished trimming strokes, making back-to-back birdies at Nos. three and four, moving him to 15-under for the event.
