FORT WORTH, Texas -- Josh Teater is eating up the back nine at Colonial.
Through the first two rounds of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Teater is a cumulative 10 under on holes 10-18, with 10 birdies and zero bogeys.
That's the best back-nine performance through two rounds at Colonial since records were kept starting in 1983.
David Toms was a collective 8 under on the back nine in 2011 when he won at Colonial. Brad Faxon was also 8 under in his two rounds in 1997.
Teater has birdied every hole on the back nine except the par-3 13th at least once. He's birdied the par-4 12th and par-4 14th twice.
"I've played the back nine great so far," said Teater, who hit two trees on the front nine during his Friday round of 67. "I haven't hit any trees or had any three-putts."
