Jordan Spieth outlasted Kevin Na in the second round of the WGC-Dell Technology Match Play on Thursday.
Spieth, who was 6 up at one point on the back nine, won the round 3 & 2 with four birdies, an eagle on No. 6 and three bogeys. Spieth outlasted a potential comeback by Na on holes 13-15 in which Na narrowed Spieth’s lead by three strokes.
Spieth was coming off a tie with Billy Horschel on Wednesday. Horschel was 3 up after six holes, but Spieth didn’t fade away, making birdies on the final two holes to end the first round with a tie.
In the worst slump of his career, Spieth hasn’t hasn’t won since the 2017 British Open and hasn’t had a top-10 finish since the 2018 British Open.
