Chelso Barrett hit a driver off the fairway to the par-5 sixth hole and reached the green in two shots. When Nicolas Echavarria failed to hole his fourth shot with a chip from off the putting surfaces, Barrett's eagle putt was conceded. Barrett now has a 2-up lead over the Colombian.
Should Barrett and Spieth win their matches, they would face each other in the Junior Amateur for a second consecutive year. Last year, Barrett, then 15, lost to Spieth in the first round at Egypt Valley C.C., 7 and 5.
