Jordan Spieth, T-2 at CJ Cup, keeping ‘foot on the gas pedal’ next two days

Jordan Spieth, T-2 at CJ Cup, keeping ‘foot on the gas pedal’ next two days

Jordan Spieth finished the CJ Cup’s second-round tied for second, five shots behind leader Keith Mitchell. But despite a few mishaps on the back nine, Spieth’s feeling good about his position through 36 holes. 

After firing a front-nine 31, Spieth started the second nine missing a 7-footer for par and it would be deja vu two holes later. However, with three bogeys on Day 2 in Las Vegas came eight birdies, one more than Round 1. And the 28-year-old Texan was focused on the good rather than the bad after his round. 

“I would say today I feel a little bit better,” said Spieth, who shot a 7-under 65 Friday, one shot better than Thursday. “Yesterday, I had a three-putt on a par 5 and another bogey from 100 yards in the fairway. At least today when I made that big mistake, I mean on 12, making that bogey there, I came back and made up for it the next few. You’re looking to kind of play 12 through – you know, 12 through 18 in 3 under, you’re trying to play a few under in the first seven and then 8 through 11 are really the tough stretch of holes out here. I got back to, on par for the course I felt like, so I feel a little better about it.”
