Justin Thomas takes two-shot lead into weekend of CJ Cup in Korea

Justin Thomas vaulted into a two-shot lead at the halfway point of the CJ Cup in Korea a great nine-under 63 in the next round.
Thomas birdied the first four holes managed to build holing his inaugural birdie putt of the day to scale to 13 under par complete, two ahead of leader Byeong Hun An and Korean-born New Zealander Danny Lee.
Jordan Spieth improved his chances of a first triumph since the Open at 2017, for a succession of errors contributed to a 75 which left him 11 strokes off the pace and out the upper 50 but defending champion Brooks Koepka went from the other direction.
There were no problems for world No 5 Thomas as he followed his own flyer after the turn with another gain in the eighth and three in five holes.
Thomas maintained the errors in bay and also atoned for his bogey-six in the 18th on Thursday having a solid birdie to close a 63 he explained aseffortless.
That has been, I would say, complete one of the rounds Ive played in a little while, he said. It arrived really straightforward. Like all of the putts I made were not anything mad I felt.
The putt on 10 was likely the hardest one that I had, but for the most partI had them in the appropriate areas for where they were fairly easy putts or closer to the gap. I never really had to worry a lot out there, which is undoubtedly a bonus
An slept on the immediately lead and started two with a nervy bogey at the 10th, but the house galleries were soon cheering as he recovered with a birdie at the 12th and subsequently created four in a row by the 17th, lifting him into 12 under with seven holes and 2 par-fives – to playwith.
However, the prior BMW PGA champion struggled over the final third of his circular and then dropped his second shot of the tournament at the sixth before parring in to get a 69 to remain at 11 under, a score later matched by Lee after he took a small gloss off his 66 with a bogey at the final.
Four birdies in six holes from the 12th raised Lee, who had been playing with Thomas and Phil Mickelson, to 12 under, but he grabbed a wedge heavy from within 100 yards in the final and came up short of the green, a mistake which resulted in a closing six.
I had a 95-yard third shot, it was downhill, and I had been attempting to strike my own 60-degree wedge a bit too hard and struck behind it a little bit, explained Lee. obtained short-sided and I did not make the down and up. However, besides that, it was a very positive
Spieth, still chasing his first victory considering lifting the Claret Jug at Royal Birkdale, recovered from a bogey at the very first with four birdies on the back nine and, after a second blemish at 11he birdied five of the final seven holes to reunite a 65 which steered him to nine under along with Emiliano Grillo (66).
Tyrrell Hatton directs the British struggle as he added a 68 together with young talent Viktor Hovland one further behind.
However, Koepka made two birdies from five bogeys in a 75 that renders him out the top-50 of this field heading into the weekend and continued to fight for shape.
