Jordan Spieth followed up his fantastic round of 64 (-8) from yesterday with a 6-under 66 to set the 36-hole scoring record at The Masters. Yeah…we think this kid is pretty good too.
He has made 15 birdies in the first two rounds. His only bogey came in the first round on the par 5 16th hole. Yep, he followed up yesterday’s tremendous round with a bogey free round today. If there were any doubts about this kids nerves, I think he out those to rest.
“I just need to keep my head down and set a goal for myself,” Spieth said. “Who knows what can happen on the weekend here. They don’t like seeing low scores here, so they might speed the greens up. It may play more challengeing this weekend, and I need to be prepared for that.”(AP)
Spieth broke the 36-hole record that was previously held by Raymond Floyd in 1976. By the way, Floyd went on to win by 8-strokes that year. Jordan currently leads by 4 shots over Charley Hoffman, who so far is following up his 67 (-5) by going 5-under par through 16 holes today.
The weekend at Augusta is always spectacular to watch. Now we can watch one of the next young stars chase his first major championship title. Go get ’em Jordan!!
