Spieth Shines as field wrestle to make top 50

A bogey free round of 63 has Jordan Spieth dictating the pace in the St Jude Championship. The annual curtain raiser for the start of the FedEx Playoffs, Spieth’s stunning round included five birdies and one eagle. 

He leads the way on -7, with Tom Kim starting today’s second round one stroke behind. Already a winner on the PGA Tour twice, Kim will be eyeing up the biggest victory of his career and looks sure to lay down another strong challenge. 

Collin Morikawa has often found himself in this position at this stage of tournaments throughout 2023 but has often failed to kick on and stay in contention. Without a win for almost two years, Morikawa will be looking to build on yet another positive start. He will tee off today two strokes off the lead.

Ten players sit in a group three strokes off the lead on -4. This group includes Tommy Fleetwood, Xander Schauffele and last week’s Wyndham Championship victor Lucas Glover

The field will continue to jostle for position as only the top 50 in the FedEx standings will move on to next week’s BMW Championship.

FedEx St. Jude Championship Round 2 Betting Preview

Jordan Spieth will start today as the slim favorite for victory at the St Jude Championship. Currently ranked twelve in the world, Spieth was dynamite on the greens yesterday sinking crucial putts when they mattered. 

It’s been an odd year for the Texan, plagued by a nagging injury, he has missed the cut in three of his last six starts, so his jolt to the top of the leaderboard is somewhat of a surprise. Arguably swinging the club the best he has all year, he will be hoping to cement his position at the top.

Scottie Scheffler comes next in the betting with the world number one starting the day on -3, four strokes off the lead. Scheffler has been a model of consistency recording top five finishes in seven of his last eight starts. 

Despite winning last year’s Masters he would ultimately fall short in the FedEx playoffs and you get the sense he will be desperate to put that right this year. 

The duo of Collin Morikawa and Rory McIlroy round out the top three in the betting with both looking to make significant moves today. 

Although McIlroy hasn’t tasted major glory this year, the Northern Irishman has his eyes set on winning both the FedEx and Race to Dubai titles. The winner of last year’s FedEx, McIlroy knows what it takes to win and advance through these tournaments. 

At a huge price it could be worth keeping an eye on Lucas Glover. The former US Open champion has been the form man on the PGA Tour over the last month. The winner of last week’s Wyndham Championship, prior to that he had posted three top ten finishes in his last four starts. Clearly confident, there isn’t any reason to suggest he will fall away today.
