Jordan Spieth put on a super show to surge ahead in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at Glendower Golf Club in Hawaii.
World number one Jordan fired a magical bogey free -9 under par 64 at the par 73 Glendower course in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at the half way point of the competition, to lead by four shots at -16 under par for 36 holes;
“Did I see 16 under? Probably not to start the season.”
“I go from leading by one to leading by four, and that’s huge.”
Second place is shared between three players at -12 under par, Patrick Reed, Fabian Gomez and Kevin Kisner, they were all bogey free today.
Kevin also shone brightly today, with -8 under 65, while Fabian carded -7 under 66 and Patrick, feeling the heat from Jordan could only manage -4 under 69.
Kevin asked after the round what was Jordan at?
“What’s Jordan at? I saw he was at 15.”
“He’ll probably shoot another 15 under, so I better get going tomorrow, the way he plays.”
“We’ll just make a bunch of birdies and see what happens.”
“First tournament of the year, kind of rusty, haven’t played in a while.”
“Seeing where my game is, I’m looking forward to having a chance on the weekend.”
Danny Lee, from New Zealand holds fifth place on his own at -11 under par, following his second round score of -5 under par 68, which sadly contained three bogey’s.
Rickie Fowler and Steven Bowditch both scored bogey free rounds of -6 under par 67 and were another shot back at -10 under par for the tournament.
Rickie spoke about the easier conditions today;
“It’s a little less windy, so the golf course was a little bit more gettable.”
“I played better today, got the ball closer to the hole, so I had more opportunities at birdie.”
