Calm, cool conditions prevailed for those lucky enough to draw early tee times. But the afternoon brought with it wind and humidity.

Keegan Bradley leads after a course-record 10-under 60. The current top nine scores were all posted by morning starters.

Among those in the afternoon wave, Marc Leishman, Patrick Reed and Andrew Svoboda are all 4-under with holes remaining.

In other afternoon play of interest, Dallas’ 19-year-old Jordan Spieth is even after 14 and 14-year-old Chinese prodigy Guan Tianlang is 1-under through 11 holes.
