SILVIS, IL - Jordan Spieth continues to show why he's the best golfer on the planet.  The 21 year old phenom shot a 10-under 61 in round 3 of the John Deere Classic to take a 2 shot lead.

The 61 is Spieth's best round as a professional.  Spieth had 6 birdies, 2 eagles and zero bogeys.  He's at -17 for the tournament, 2 strokes better than Danny Lee.  What's crazy is Spieth was in danger of missing the cut after shooting a 71 in round 1.

Iowa native Zach Johnson shot a 66 in round 3 to sit at -13, in a tie for 6th, four shots behind Spieth.
