HILTON HEAD ISLAND — Troy Merritt fired a course record-tying 10-under-par 61 on Friday to take a commanding four stroke lead into the weekend.

Masters champion Jordan Spieth had the second-best round of the day, firing a nine-under-par 62 to bounce back after a three-over-par 74 on Thursday. He is now at -6 after two.

Aikenite Kevin Kisner is also in the hunt, at -7.

WRDW, Augusta’s home for the RBC Heritage, picks up the action at 15:00 today.
