Jordan Spieth falls five shots off lead in Singapore

The Sports Xchange

Jordan Spieth was just one shot behind the leader after one round, but he fell five shots off the lead at the Singapore Open on Friday before a storm caused the second round to be halted before everyone finished play.

Spieth only completed six holes Friday, recording one birdie and one bogey.


Song Young-han was one of the few golfers who completed the round, firing an 8-under-par 63 to take the lead at 9-under for the tournament.

Song is two shots ahead of two players tied for second at 7-under -- Shintaro Kobayashi, who fired a 2-under 69 on Friday, and Byeong-hun An, who is 3-under after seven holes in the second round at Sentosa Country Club.

Spieth failed to make up any ground on the new front-runner, remaining at 4-under.

"Didn't get off to a great start but made a good birdie on No. 2," Spieth said. "Had a couple of bad putts. Missed a short one on No. 4. On 7, I got a bit unlucky. I had a perfect distance to the hole, the par-5, and just when I hit my second, the wind changed. My ball came up just short of the green, and when I went to play my putt, that's when the rain came in hard, almost horizontally. My putt came up 7 feet short."


Keith Horne and Hideto Tanihara were tied for fourth at 4-under par, but Horne only completed two holes in the second round and Tanihara got through seven.
