Jordan Spieth is on a roll.
Fresh off his record-setting performance at the Masters, the 21-year-old shot a 9-under at the RBC Heritage. The 62 ranked second to the Hilton Head, South Carolina, course record of 61, established before his first birthday by David Frost.
Spieth played a pedestrian round on Thursday. But Friday’s 9-under more than offset his 3-over the previous day.
“That was just better golf,” Spieth said. “I told you guys yesterday, no excuses. I just played poorly.”
Matt Kuchar, Kevin Kisner, and Troy Merritt currently sit atop the leaderboard at 8-under. Spieth, at two strokes back, appears close enough to pull out his third tournament of 2015 should he play anywhere near the way he did on Friday for the rest of the weekend.
