Jordan Spieth’s quest for a second green jacket is off to a solid start. Spieth birdied four straight after a bogey on the par-4 fifth hole and holds a five stroke lead over Danny Willet at 7 under par with nine left to play.
He opened with a par on the tough par-4 first and followed with a birdie on the par-5 second.
After the bogey on the fifth, he drained a 12 foot putt on the par-3 sixth and then hit his second shot on the par-4 seventh within two feet.
Here’s a look at the shot:
His 32 on the front nine matches his best score in 12 rounds at the Masters. Pretty awesome start.
