UPDATE NO. 12 (6:56 p.m. ET): Your recap for the day:

UPDATE NO. 11 (6:21 p.m. ET): Rory McIlroy shoots 68 to make the cut. He finishes 1 over and is T-48.

Hideki Matsuyama, the FedEx Cup points leader, may see an early exit, though. Matsuyama shoots 69, but that only gets him to 3 over. He’s currently T-71. If one more player moves back, he’s in to the weekend, but that would probably mean Geoff Ogilvy triple bogeying 18 to do so. Pretty unlikely and that’s the only even remotely realistic option. So 98 percent right now that Matsuyama misses the cut.

UPDATE NO. 10 (6:11 p.m. ET): Spieth finishes par-par to close in 30. That puts him in with 65 and tied for the lead with three others at 6 under. What a wonderful Friday from Mr. Spieth.

UPDATE NO. 9 (5:19 p.m. ET): Spieth bogeys 15 but comes right back with a birdie at 16 to keep himself 6 under and tied for the lead. That’s birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-bogey-birdie in his last seven holes.

ZERO pars on the back nine right now.

UPDATE NO. 8 (4:51 p.m. ET): Spieth stuffs one to 7 feet at No. 14 and rolls in the putt! Five straight birdies and he’s now tied for the lead at 6 under! Wow!

UPDATE NO. 7 (4:35 p.m. ET): Birdie at 13 and Spieth is 5 under and just one shot back! This was a simple one, second shot on par 5 into greenside bunker and he splashed out inside a foot for a tap-in.

UPDATE NO. 6 (4:20 p.m. ET): Jordan Spieth is heating up!!

Three straight birdies from Nos. 10-12 have him 4 under. That’s right, he’s just two back! This latest birdie was classic Spieth, by the way…

UPDATE NO. 5 (4:16 p.m. ET): Rory McIlroy was on the cutline (3 over) earlier today as he was even par early in his round, but he has since birdied Nos. 16 and 2 to move back to 1 over. He’s made three pars since No. 2 and that means he’s 1 over and two clear of the cutline with four holes to play.

Just par in from here, and McIlroy is assured a weekend spot.

UPDATE NO. 4 (3:26 p.m. ET): Justin Thomas and Justin Rose are both 3 under and just three back after these beauties.

UPDATE NO. 3 (2:23 p.m. ET): Rickie Fowler birdies No. 9 after burying a 16-footer. That moves him to 6 under, puts him in with 4-under 66 and he’s tied for the lead!

UPDATE NO. 2 (1:03 p.m. ET): Dustin Johnson got it to 8 under before back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 4 and 5. That means he’s gone from a two-shot lead to co-leading. He’s there with Russell Henley (yet to start Round 2) and Jhonattan Vegas (second-round 65).

Rickie Fowler is now one back with one to play after birdies at Nos. 4 and 6.

UPDATE NO. 1 (11:30 a.m. ET): Dustin Johnson starts with a pair of birdies on the back nine (his front nine) and he’s now the solo leader at 7 under.
