American golfer Jordan Spieth displayed his Masters credentials again on Friday and was even dubbed ‘Wyatt Earp’ as there appears to be little to stop him from winning the ‘Gunfight at the Augusta Corral’, The Sun reports.
Speith has been given the nickname by fellow Yank Ben Crenshaw as, like Earp, he has been taking no prisoners on Day 2 of the Masters.
The 21-year-old continued his impressive run of form as he added a score of six-under-par 66 to his first round of 64.
And even though he missed a seven-foot putt for his final Birdie, his score of 14-under-par still managed to break a 39-year record to clock up the lowest 36-hole result at the Masters.
Not only did he top Ray Floyd’s score from 1976, he tied the halfway score for any major tournament and went back to the clubhouse with a five-shot lead of Charly Hoffman.
“I love the way he looks at you. The first time I met him, he just had this certain look about him that was like Wyatt Earp,” Crenshaw said.
“He is as nice as you can be — but there is real competitive fire in there.”
