Spieth, Reed Move to Front US Open Race

Jordan Spieth, on a quest to become the first man to win The Masters and the US Open in 13 years, rose to the top of the leaderboard alongside playing partner Patrick Reed at the end of play Friday at Chambers Way in Washington.

Spieth could have had sole possession of the lead, but finished the round with a double bogey on No. 18 to drop from 7-under to 5-under. He still shot a 3-under 67 on the day, and stroked six birdies.

Reed was all over the place on his way to a 1-under 69. His sequence from whole 7 to hole 13  went bogey, birdie, bogey, bogey, birdie, eagle, birdie.

The pair have a one-stroke lead over South Africa’s Branden Grace and the US’ Dustin Johnson.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy barely made the cut with his second straight 72 to sit at 4-over, the exact mark of the cut.

Three-time winner Tiger Woods shot a 76 to miss the cut, only the fifth time that has happened to him at a Major.
