Jordan Spieth's Saturday at TPC San Antonio went, well, about how a Jordan Spieth round typically goes.

Spieth carded an even par round of 72, which included a double-bogey seven on the 18th hole in which Spieth took quite the circuitous route to the hole via the clubhouse roof. Let the graphic speak for itself.

Now that you've seen the graphic of the route that Spieth took on 18, it's time to gaze at the shot that he somehow managed to hit on the clubhouse roof.

It's all part of the experience of watching Spieth, a three-time major winner and one of the best players in the world, make his way around the golf course.

Heading into Sunday's final round, Spieth sits at three under par and in a tie for 17th place at the Valero Texas Open. He's well off the pace set by Akshay Bhatia, who is leading the tournament at 15 under par.
