Day 2 at the Hero Challenge and Jordan managed a 2 shot lead to close out the day. See below.
Playing in the final group Friday, Jordan Spieth leads by two shots and he faces a chip shot on the final hole as second-round play was suspended due to darkness at the Hero World Challenge.
Spieth, the first-round leader who was 5-under on the day, decided to finish up his round on
Saturday with his ball just off the front of the green on No. 18. Spieth is currently at 11-under through 35 holes and he leads Henrik Stenson by two shots.
“I think if it were a normal event and we weren't the last group the horn would've been blown probably when we were on 16 green,” said Spieth. “It got pretty dark. I don't know if the cameras did it justice. If I did it over again I may have stopped playing on 17 but I thought we may be able to get it in here.”
Heavy rain delayed play for about an hour and a half, forcing most of the players in the final few pairings to finish up their second rounds in the dark at Isleworth Golf & Country Club.
Steve Stricker, playing in the penultimate group, was on the 18th green when he decided to call it quits for the day. Spieth and Stricker are the only ones who still need to finish their second rounds. Stricker was even par on the day and is tied for 12th at minus-5.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate tomorrow.
