UPDATE NO. 18 (11:25 a.m. ET): Spieth is struggling. He once again has to scramble but this time can’t convert an up and down. Spieth blasts out of greenside bunker to 10 feet but the putt misses low. For the first time today, Spieth is over par. Now +1 and four back.

UPDATE NO. 17 (11:10 a.m. ET): Spieth with a beautiful up and down at the par-4 18th. To be clear, Spieth bogeyed 16 earlier to move back to even par. So he goes out in even-par 36. Not a bad start.

UPDATE NO. 16 (10:54 a.m. ET): It’s already been a painful day for one guy.

UPDATE NO. 15 (10:48 a.m. ET): Woodland is your solo leader now at 3 under after he birdies No. 7 and Casey bogeys the 17th. It’ll be a par for Spieth at 17 by the way, as he comfortably two-putts there.

UPDATE NO. 14 (10:39 a.m. ET): Spieth bogeys the 16th but is safely aboard the green at the water-shrouded par-3 17th. It hasn’t been flashy, but he’s even par so far.

UPDATE NO. 13 (10:30 a.m. ET): Gary Woodland caught Casey at 3 under. But a bogey dropped him back to -2. Casey is the solo leader once again.

UPDATE NO. 12 (10:17 a.m. ET): We have a birdie! Spieth flails his second shot right at the par-5 15th but chips up to 4 feet and drains the putt! He’s now 1 under and just two back. But “The Green Mile” awaits…

UPDATE NO. 11 (9:54 a.m. ET): Spieth drives the par-4 14th green but just barely. He has a 119-foot putt from front edge that he races by some 15 feet off the green. His returning putt from back fringe misses left. Three-putt par, five straight to start. So far this is Spieth’s best highlight.

UPDATE NO. 10 (9:44 a.m. ET): Jordan Spieth races a 10-footer for birdie at 13 by some 4 feet. But he cleans up for par. Four straight to start and he’s even par.

UPDATE NO. 9 (9:42 a.m. ET): Paul Casey birdies Nos. 11, 12 and 14 and he’s 3 under and leading by one!

UPDATE NO. 8 (9:34 a.m. ET): Jim Herman has now tied the lead! He, Hideki Matsuyama and Chris Wood are all 2 under.

UPDATE NO. 7 (9:20 a.m. ET): Jordan Spieth with an awesome birdie putt from 71 feet at the 12th, and it’s a great putt … but comes up just short. That’s three straight pars to start for the Champion Golfer of the Year.

Seriously this is an incredible lag putt. He had to aim dozens of feet right on this one.

UPDATE NO. 6 (9:09 a.m. ET): A 10-way tie for the lead early!

UPDATE NO. 5 (9:08 a.m. ET): Michael Phelps is watching Spieth!

UPDATE NO. 4 (9:00 a.m. ET): Chris Wood is now your solo leader at 2 under as he starts birdie-birdie after teeing off on No. 10. Spieth begins par-par.

UPDATE NO. 3 (8:47 a.m. ET): Jordan Spieth is off with a par at No. 10. That’s a par 5 but one that is almost unreachable in two. So, not a great or bad start.

UPDATE NO. 2 (8:20 a.m. ET): Hideki Matsuyama starts on No. 10 and starts birdie-birdie! He’s coming off an astonishing 61 to win the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and is picking up right where he left off. He’s tied for the lead!

UPDATE NO. 1 (7:22 a.m. ET): We’re off at the PGA Championship!
