First-round leader Martin Kaymer followed up his opening 63 with a solid 69. All day long, he lorded over the field at 12 under, as the major winner drew an early morning round. 

As Kaymer said, "I didn't hit as many fairways as yesterday, but I managed my way quite nicely around the golf course, had a couple of nice up‑and‑downs, two longer putts went in."

Only Jordan Spieth was really up to the task of climbing toward the German's tally. The 20-year-old carded an impressive bogey free 66, which included a streak of three birdies in four holes from the 11th through the 14th. He finished at 11 under. 

Kaymer and Spieth positioned themselves ahead of the competition, and Russell Henley was the sole competitor who was nearly able to match the two. Henley cared a second-round 71 for a two-day tally of eight under par. 

No other golfer is better than six under entering the weekend.
