Spieth holds 2-shot lead at suspended Hero World Challenge

Windemere, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – Playing in the final group Friday,
Jordan Spieth leads by two shots and he faces a chip shot on the final hole as
second-round play was suspended due to darkness at the Hero World Challenge.

Spieth, the first-round leader who was 5-under on the day, decided to finish
up his round on Saturday with his ball just off the front of the green on No.
18. Spieth is currently at 11-under through 35 holes and he leads Henrik
Stenson by two shots.

Heavy rain delayed play for about an hour and a half, forcing most of the
players in the final few pairings to finish up their second rounds in the dark
at Isleworth Golf & Country Club.

Steve Stricker, playing in the penultimate group, was on the 18th green when
he decided to call it quits for the day. Spieth and Stricker are the only ones
who still need to finish their second rounds. Stricker was even par on the day
and is tied for 12th at minus-5.

Stenson started off on fire and held the lead at one point, but he struggled
after the weather delay. Stenson carded a 4-under 68 and he is in second place
at 9-under 135.

Patrick Reed flirted with a 59 early on in his round, but he slowed down a bit
coming down the stretch. Still, Reed followed up his 73 Thursday with a 9-
under 63 Friday and he is tied for third with Justin Rose (64) at 8-under 136.

Tournament host Tiger Woods improved on his 77 in the first round with a 2-
under 70 Friday, but a tough finish still has him in last place at 3-over 147.
