And ... Patrick Reed birdies the second hole to join Jimmy Walker at the top of the leaderboard at -5. There are birdies to be made out there -- 62, anyone?

Ty Wenger ESPN Editor 

It's never too soon to talk cut line! The projected cut at the PGA is currently sitting at +1. The top 70 golfers and ties will make the cut; and with 77 golfers at +1 or better, the odds for it to slide back to +2 are good. But given the softness of the rain-soaked greens today, there's no guarantee it will slide back to +3. So Sergio Garcia, John Daly and Rory McIlroy (+4), and JB. Holmes (+5) have some work to do.

A nice par-saving 6-foot putt for Jordan Spieth on the 2nd hole (his tenth of the day) keeps him at -4 and one stroke off the lead at the PGA Championship.

After getting off to a slow start Friday at Baltusrol, Open champion Henrik Stenson has eagled the 18th hole (his 9th), hitting a 260-yard approach to 3 feet. The eagle got him back to even par for his round and -3 for the tournament, two strokes behind leader Jimmy Walker. Stenson had bogeyed the 12th and 13th holes. He now heads to the first nine.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Patrick Reed is keeping pace with Jordan Spieth. He keeps following Spieth's birdies and following him up the leaderboard. Each player is now 4-under and just one stroke off the lead.

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

Jordan Spieth's 5 birdies in 9 holes at Baltusrol have him one shot out of the lead as he heads to the front nine. Spieth hit all 9 greens in regulation and his only bogey came at the 12th hole where he 3-putted. Spieth is one back of Jimmy Walker who tees off this afternoon.

Jordan Spieth is trying to become the first player to win three majors in a two-year span since Padraig Harrington in 2007-08.

Jordan Spieth just played his first nine (the back-nine on the course) in 4-under 32 and is now just one stroke out of the PGA Championship lead. Spieth, who turned 23 earlier this week, is seeking his third major title in the last two years.

It's been a relatively quiet year for former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, but he's starting to make some noise this week, as he's currently at 3-under, just two strokes off the lead in a share of fourth place.
