Jordan Spieth continues to evolve positively after several weeks to the upside and remains on top of The Memorial Tournament. His game is still very solid, to the point that after 20 holes played in the tournament he had only required 22 putts. On the second day he was more discreet and finished with 70 shots (-2), for a total of 136. With 135 there is a trio of leaders consisting of Troy Merrit, Kyoung-Hoon Lee and an amazing Martin Kaymer.Rafa Cabrera Bello, with 143 shots (-1), he passed the cut, something that neither Rory McIlroy, who was showing himself as one of the most regular players of this 2019, Jason Day, Phil Mickelson (79 shots the second day), Tony Finau or Justin Thomas (80 hits on Friday). Tiger Woods tarnished the day with a double bogey in the 15th when he marched in -4 in the global. With 142 (-2) it does not finish of hooking up to the first positions. Justin Rose not only raffled the cut after a first round of 75, but he climbed vertiginously thanks to his 63 hits this Friday (he came to chain eagle-birdie-eagle)
The day not only confirmed the good state of Spieth, but also that of Martin Kaymer, winner of two 'majors' and once world number one, the player who certified the 'Miracle of Medinah'. 67 and 68 hits to rise to the lead and choose to win in the PGA again, where he does not do so since the US Open in 2014, although his last victory dates back to 2015 in the Italian Open.
