Jordan Spieth bombed a drive down 9, his 18th, his wedge was solid and he finally holed a putt to shoot even par 71 and remain at one under for the tournament. His ball striking was solid all day but he had 34 putts and was immensely frustrated on the greens. Matt Jones fired a four under 67. Cam Smith shot a two under 69.

Decent crowd on 18 to see Jordan Spieth miss a short birdie try. After starting on 10 he went out in even par 36 with one birdie and one bogey. He had some good birdie looks but the putter was ice cold. He's still seven back of the lead. Playing partner Matt Jones made four birdies to get to 4 under for the tournament. Cam Smith went out in 34 to also be at 4 under.

Jordan Spieth's opening tee shot on day two at the Australian Open went well left into a fairway trap. But he put his wedge within 15 feet. Couldn't convert. He starts with a par. He remains seven back of the lead. Scoring conditions are ideal early this morning and he will get opportunities to make a bunch of birdies.

Jordan Spieth walks in a 20-foot birdie putt on the last to shoot a one under par 70. That was a good score considering the tough afternoon conditions. But he's seven shots off the lead still held by Cameron Davis.
