Blair, Summerhays Make Cut at Hilton Head; Spieth Makes Slight Change, Shoots 62

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Zac Blair and Daniel Summerhays made the cut at The Heritage Classic at Hilton Head while Tony Finau missed it my two shots. Blair shot 70-69-139 and Summerhays came in at 70-70-140. Finau shot 73-71-144.

The tournament focus is on  Jordan Spieth, newly crowned Masters champion, who  torched his final 14 holes Friday at Harbour Town Golf Links going 8-under as he charged from Thursday afterthought to contender at the RBC Heritage. His 9-under 62 propelled the 21-year-old into a share for third place, two shots behind Friday playing partner and defending RBC Heritage champion Matt Kuchar during the morning wave. Kuchar shot a not-shabby 5-under 66 to get to 8-under after 36 holes. 

Spieth's 62 was just a shot off the tournament single-round record 61 set by David Frost in 1994. That record was matched Friday by Troy Merritt who leads by four.

“I found something in my ball position on the range this morning, and it made a significant difference in my ball-striking and in my putting,” Spieth said in a classic example of understatement.
