Jordan Spieth Roars to Lead at Northern Open

Jordan Spieth roared to the lead at the Northern Trust on Saturday on Saturday,  shooting a 64 on Saturday to reach 12-under, taking a 3-stroke lead over world No. 1 Dustin Johnson in the process.

Winning the first leg of the FedEx Cup is a huge advantage towards winning the overall title, something Spieth did just two years ago.

Spieth was 1-over through two holes, then ripped off four birdies in the six holes to take the lead. He put together three more birdies in a row between 14 and 16 to take the lead for good. Johnson had four birdies and one bogey to shoot a 67. Four men are tied for third: Matt Kuchar, Jon Rahm, Patrick Reed and Paul Casey.

The other top players in the world aren’t fairing as well as Johnson and Spieth. Rory McIlroy is +1 while Hideki Matsuyama missed the cut entirely.
