Jordan Spieth showed signs of life early in his second round of the Open Championship at Carnoustie, with birdies on No. 3 and No. 5. He moved to one under for the tournament, bringing him to T19 on the leaderboard.
Spieth’s birdie at the 3rd was far from routine. having ended up left of the green with a large swale between him and the hole, the defending Open champion hit a nifty chip that bounced onto the green and tracked straight into the cup.
