- Jordan Spieth fired a one-under par 69 to seize a one-stroke lead over fellow Americans Patrick Reed and Troy Merritt after Friday's second round of the US PGA Travelers Championship. Sixth-ranked Spieth, the 2015 Masters and US Open champion seeking his 10th tour title, stood on eight-under par 132 after 36 holes at TPC River Highlands near Hartford, Connecticut. Reed opened and closed with birdies in firing a 66 while Merritt shot 68 to stand on 133 with compatriots Wesley Bryan, Daniel Summerhays, Boo Weekley and Chase Seiffert another stroke adrift. "I was a little tentative to start," Spieth said. "Things were just a little bit off today. I didn't feel like it was harder than yesterday. Just had an off round. Was able to hold it at one-under instead of falling further back."
