Jordan Spieth


Q.  Jordan Spieth continues to advance in this championship.  How good was this golf you played today?

JORDAN SPIETH:  Yeah, I'm getting definitely more and more comfortable with the golf course.  On the greens, I need to get some work done on my putting, get a pop back into it.  I was a little easy on the greens today.
