Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy Matching Each Other Blow for Blow

Jordan Spieth Fires Second Round 67 to Jump into PGA Contention
The marquee group made moves on Friday, with Jordan Spieth shooting a 5-under par 67 to finish one shot back of leader David Lingmerth, and Rory McIlroy making an eagle to finish 2-under after two rounds.

As soon as Rory McIlroy made it clear he was playing in the PGA Championship, the battle between him and Jordan Spieth became the biggest storyline entering the tournament.

In Friday’s second round they are showing why, answering each other blow for blow. Not long after Spieth holed out for birdie from the bunker on 18, McIlroy chipped in for eagle on the second hole (they started on No. 10).

Spieth’s birdie was particularly timely on the long par-4 18th, which has crushed players all week. It moved him to 3-under for the tournament and put him three shots ahead of McIlroy after the world No. 1 double-bogeyed the hole and fell to even par. McIlroy’s bounceback eagle then moved him to 2-under.
