PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – So much for that Masters hangover for Jordan Spieth.
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.
''Very stress-free,'' Spieth said. ''I'd like to have that the next two days.''
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. He treated the second round like a fresh start, lowered his expectations and capped off his 3-under 69 with a pitching wedge to 4 feet on an island green with a back pin on the 17th hole.
