Overton moves closer, leaders slip

Take away the second round and Jeff Overton would be 9 under. Of course you can’t do that, but Overton has nonetheless found a way to recover from his 74.

Through his first nine holes on Saturday, Overton is 3 under and as a result has moved back into contention just two shots back.

The two players Overton is chasing? Ryan Palmer and Sergio Garcia, both of whom are 1 over through six holes.

As for Jordan Spieth, the 17-year-old high school senior who began the day five shots back? He raced out of the tee box with birdies on each of his first two holes, but he gave those back on the fourth hole with a double bogey. Spieth then made another bogey on the par-4 ninth to make the turn in 1 over on the day.

The good news for Spieth, of course, is that the leaders have gone backwards as well and he’s still just five shots back.
