Teenager Spieth continues to climb

Jordan Spieth is continuing to prove that last year was no fluke.

At 3 under through his first 12 holes in the second round, Spieth, the 17-year-old Dallas amateur, is now 4 under for the tournament and in a tie for fourth at the moment.

Last year, he tied for 16th as a 16-year-old and was even on the fringe of contention Sunday before fading.

Friday, he has four birdies and just one bogey through 12 holes after starting his round on the back nine.

Three of those birdies came from close range with Spieth sticking his approach shots inside 10 feet. The other came from just off the par-4 12th green, where he holed out from just over 26 feet.

So once again it looks like Spieth will be in contention going into the weekend at TPC Four Seasons.
