To help you appreciate Svensson’s late charge to make the cut is the tale of what happened to Jordan Spieth on Friday. Spieth had a share of the lead after 18 holes when he shot a six-under 64. But then he came out flat on Friday and shot a five-over 75 to miss the cut by one shot. The 11-stroke difference in first- and second-round scores is the biggest ever for Spieth in 256 career PGA Tour starts.
