Speith leads the Masters
AUGUSTA - Jordan Spieth headed to the 18th hole Friday with a chance at Masters history.
Turning in another brilliant round, Spieth merely needed to make par on the final hole to set a 36-hole scoring record at Augusta National.
The 21-year-old Texan was at 14 under for the tournament, having made 15 birdies and only one bogey over the first two days of the tournament. One more par would give him a 130 heading to the weekend - breaking the mark of 131 set by Raymond Floyd at the 1976 Masters.
The only serious challenger was Charley Hoffman, who ripped off three straight birdies to push his score to 10 under, four shots off the lead.
Ernie Els was the only other player facing less than a double-digit deficit. He was nine shots back at 5-under 139.
