Eagle From Jordan Spieth Moves Him Three Clear

Wowzers. The man of the moment has just flown away from the chasing pack after bagging an eagle on the 15th hole!

Spieth is now three shots clear of clubhouse leader Matt Kuchar, and four clear of those players still out on the course: Brooks Koepka and Richard Bland.

The American's odds have now shrunk to just 11/10 in the betting. Firm Favourite.

Bogeys For Koepka & Matsuyama

Brooks Koepka is the latest name in the top echelons of the betting to throw away a shot, after he bogeys the 13th to fall down to -3, two shots behind leader Jordan Spieth.

Meanwhile, it's gone from bad to worse for the free-falling Hideki Matsuyama who has bogeyed three of his last four holes. Ouch.

Back-To-Back Bogeys For Matsuyama

Disappointment for World No.2 Hideki Matsuyama who has had a wretched start to the back nine, carding back-to-back bogeys on the 10th and 11th holes.

He subsequently drops five shots off the lead on -1.

Jordan Spieth Extends Lead As Ian Poulter Ends On -3

All the momentum has been with Jordan Spieth (-6) after that stunning save on the 10th, as he makes it back-to-back birdies on the 11th & 12th to extend his lead to two shots.

Meanwhile, Ian Poulter will be a satisfied man after finishing the second day level par (70), with a total score of -3 heading into the weekend.

Elsewhere it's been a good start to the back nine from defending champion Henrik Stenson who is par, birdie, birdie from his last three holes.
