AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) Jordan Spieth got to 10-under par at the Masters, and he did it before lunchtime.
The 21-year-old Texan stretched his lead to five strokes with an 18-foot birdie putt at the fifth hole. He also birdied the par-5 second after coming up just short of the green with his approach, then chipping up next to the flag for a short birdie putt. He was 12 under after 12 holes.
Just as important, Spieth is making all the testy, par-saving putts that can ruin your day at Augusta National. A 4-footer at No. 1. A 6-footer at the third. A 3-footer at the fourth.
Tiger Woods started his day with a birdie at the first, getting back to even par for the tournament. He was two under after 10 holes to get to one under for the tournament.
Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen is making a move early in the second round at the Masters.
Oosthuizen, who lost in a playoff to Bubba Watson three years ago, birdied the first two holes Friday and added another birdie at No. 5, pushing his score to 3 under for the day and the tournament. He’s three under for the tournament after 16 holes.
