Spieth Takes The Positives

Spieth Takes The Positives

American Jordan Spieth insists he got lucky on occasions as he moved into a share of the lead at a rain affected Genesis Open.

Spieth was only able to complete 12 holes after rain stopped play for up to seven hours in California.

He will resume his first round on Friday, but the US Ryder Cup star will not have to play his second round until Saturday morning.

The 25-year-old raced into an early share of the lead on five-under par, with only 10 groups on the course when play was suspended at Riviera Country Club.

Spieth Targets Return To Form

He shares the lead with Sung Kang but admitted that some of his ball striking was not up to scratch.

Spieth told the PGA Tour website: “My score doesn’t reflect how I’ve played. “It’s certainly better than the way I struck the ball. That’s what happens when you get a couple chip-ins – you score well. Just want to cap it off tomorrow.”
