Jordan Spieth came out in full swing when it came to moving day at the Valspar Championship on Saturday.

Spieth added two more front-nine birdies to take a two-shot lead and birdie the par-5 opening hole at Innisbrook Resort.

After hitting a 343-yard drive to start his third round, Spieth hit his second shot from 218 yards, just 8 feet to the left and sank an eagle putt.

Four holes later, on the par-5 fifth, Spieth hit a driver off the deck and into the front bunker, his second shot traveling 271 yards. He got up and down, rolling in a 5-footer for birdie.

He birdied the par-4 eighth after a bogey in the par-4 seventh and shot a 3-under 33 on the front nine, bringing Spieth to 8 overall.
