Jordan Spieth: 'I got more than I deserved from Open second round'

Two-time Major winner Jordan Spieth says that he got "more than he deserved" from his second round at The Open at Royal Birkdale.

Two-time Major winner Jordan Spieth has suggested that he does not deserve to hold a two-shot lead at The Open.

On Friday, Spieth registered a second-round score of 69 to open up a clear advantage over nearest challengers Matt Kuchar, Ian Poulter and Brooks Koepka.

However, the American has insisted that he was fortunate to post such a good score in testing conditions at Royal Birkdale.

The 23-year-old is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "I give myself a B grade today. I got pretty frustrated through the turn, hitting it into pot bunker after pot bunker and squeaking out pars somehow.

"I didn't get everything I could out of yesterday's round and I got more than what I deserved today."

Spieth has made the cut on each of his five appearances at The Open, with his best finish currently a share of fourth at St Andrew's in 2015.
