Levin eagles No. 17
Spencer Levin holes a 37-foot bunker shot en route to a second-round 63.
A week removed from opening with a 62 at Torrey Pines, Spencer Levin is at it again, this time shooting an 8-under 63 in Friday’s second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
At 14 under through the first two rounds, Levin has a commanding lead. Now he’ll try to avoid what happened last week when he followed that opening round with three straight scores in the 70s.
“I try not to think about that,” said Levin, who hit 15 greens in regulation and took just 25 putts in the second round.
Levin actually finished his first round early Friday morning, birdieing his first of three holes before capping off a 65. He took that momentum right back to the course with birdies on each of his first two holes in the second round.
“Everything was pretty good today,” Levin said. “My putting and chipping feels real solid.
“Sometimes when you finish around … I felt pretty good going into my second round and it didn’t feel like a second round.”
