In his first big tournament since the 20-year-old Texan tied for second at Augusta National, Spieth had another bogey-free round Friday in The Players Championship and shot a 6-under 66 to trail Martin Kaymer by one shot going into the weekend.

Kaymer tied the course record with a 63 in the opening round - becoming the first player with a 29 on either nine - and his encore wasn't too shabby.
