Hometown PGA Tour Professional Jordan Spieth seems to be having a resurgence lately. This would be fantastic for all golf fans. Per usual, when Jordan is back at it, it is because of his putting. Jordan was #1 in birdies, putting, and putts per GIR. This resulted in a stellar 65 (-5) which is good for a T2.
The bomber Tony Finau is your leader after todays round. Working his way to a 64 (-6) with an average drive of 325 yards and was #1 in GIR. Tony is looking for his 2nd PGA Tour win, can he go wire-to-wire?
What does the home of Ben Hogan have in store for the remainder of this weekend?
