Jordan Spieth believes the hard work he put in after an early exit from the Players Championship is paying off after a much-improved start to the week at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Nmd r2 Damen Schweiz . The 22-year-old missed the cut at TPC Sawgrass last week in his first event since a final-round collapse at the Masters, but he has made a strong start in Texas by following an opening-round 64 with a five-under 65 on Friday.Spieth mixed six birdies with a solitary bogey at TPC Four Seasons, a course he has notoriously struggled at over the years, giving him the early clubhouse second-round lead with Brooks Koepka. Jordan Spieth posted six birdies during his round The world No 2 has not finished inside the top-25 in the event since a tie for 16th as an amateur in 2010, but feels the extra work put in with coach Cameron Mccormick this week has brought a marked improvement. Its very gratifying, Spieth told the PGA Tours featured group coverage. I have complete trust in Camerons (Mccormick) eye and he has the trust that Im going to put in the work to get to a point where were successful.Sometimes thats not the next week but fortunately, this week it is. Most of our work has been on the greens, and that has shown today. Spieth carded four birdies in a five-hole stretch I feel a little loose with my iron play and even some of my wedges, and the proximity to the hole from a lot of the positions Ive been playing hasnt been where I want it.Weve made up for it with the putter thus far and if we can tone that down a little bit and keep the putter hot, well be in good shape.After missing a 10-footer for birdie at the 11th, Spieth picked up a shot from a similar distance at the next but gave it straight back with a three-putt bogey at the short 13th. Spieths last victory came in Januarys Hyundai Tournament of Champions The world No 2 drained a 20-footer at the 14th and made a move up the leaderboard with a hat-trick of gains from the 16th to reach the turn in 31.A run of close-range pars came to an end with a two-putt birdie at the par-five seventh, before Spieth closed a bogey-free second nine and set the clubhouse target by holing from 10 feet to save par at the ninth. The 13th Ive three-putted twice in a row now and then I ended up in a really tough spot on 14, Spieth added. Ive been on that spot every year and made bogeys, made doubles and made pars, but finally made a birdie out of that.It was a really nice break to get some momentum for sure.Watch the AT&T Byron Nelson throughout the weekend live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: AT&T Byron Nelson leaders Garcia makes bright start First round highlights Golf live on Sky Sports Adidas Nmd r2 Schweiz .

What they did need, the Devils got from Patrik Elias. Elias scored a power-play goal 40 seconds into overtime to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars.TORONTO -- T.J. Brennan couldnt have asked for a better debut with the Toronto Marlies. The 24-year-old defenceman scored his first-career hat trick and set up Trevor Smiths overtime goal as Toronto edged the visiting Grand Rapids Griffins 4-3 on Saturday in American Hockey League action. Brennan, who has three two-goal performances in 226 AHL games, was acquired in the off-season by Toronto for his offensive capabilities, but even he was surprised by his performance. "I think thats a first for me there," said Brennan about his hat trick. "I just wanted to start the season off simple. You throw it to the net and good things can happen. I got a couple lucky bounces." The Marlies (1-0-0) caught a break in overtime when Griffins defenceman Brennan Evans was penalized for closing his hand on the puck in the crease. While leading the 4-on-3 power play, Brennan spotted Smith with a pass, who one-timed it past goaltender Jared Coreau off the post and in at 2:59. "We got better as the game went on but theyre a quick transition team and you have to play good smart hockey," Brennan said about the 2013 Calder Cup champions. "We did a good job for the most part." David Broll chipped in two assists for Toronto while Smith added an assist for a two-point outing. Mitch Callahan, Riley Sheahan and Tomas Jurco supplied the offence for the Griffins (1-0-1), who opened their season Friday with an 8-1 win over the Rochester Americans. Drew MacIntyre stopped 27 shots for the win as Coreau made 22 saves in defeat. Brennan opened the scoring with a wrist shot from the slot at 5:25 of the first period, but Jurco and Sheehan scored less than two minutes apart to put Grand Rapids up 2-1 after 20 minutes of play.

Toronto couldnt hold the lead, though, as Callahan redirected a no-look backhand pass from Jurco to tie the game 3-3 less than five minutes into the third period. "Theyre opportunistic and we turned over pucks in the neutral zone and they made us pay for it," said Marlies coach Steve Spott. The Marlies had to overcome a lack of discipline late in the third just to force overtime as Brad Ross picked up back-to-back minor penalties, followed by Andrew MacWilliam, who was served a five-minute major and game misconduct for boarding. "Im really proud of our team for killing that off at that moment of the game," said Brennan. Brennan was paired all game with NHL veteran John-Michael Liles, who was playing in his first AHL game since being demoted by the Maple Leafs last Sunday. While Liles didnt show up on the score sheet, Spott was more than pleased with what he brought to the lineup. "Hes always talking on the bench and calming guys down on the back end," said Spott. "His experience is invaluable to us right now." Toronto went 2-for-8 on the power play while Grand Rapids failed to score on six chances with the man advantage. The Marlies will host the Lake Erie Monsters on Sunday. ' ' '
