Poults & Rickie in the mix as Spieth and Day go their separate ways...
Jason Day will become the third World Number one in three weeks if he wins here in Boston on Monday.
On Friday he got to five under until two bogeys in his final five holes stopped him in his tracks. He still shot 68 and is right in the mix. Rory McIlroy, back at World Number 1 and playing for only the second time since the U.S. Open because of an ankle injury, shot 70.
Jordan Spieth, on the other hand left the course after refusing to speak to reporters following his 75 which included eight bogeys. This was the Masters and U.S. Open champion's equal highest round of the year. Coming off a missed cut at The Barclays, he goes into Friday in a tie for 80th. It was the first time since June 2014 that Spieth has had three straight rounds over par.
Ian Poulter shot a 67 which featured four birdies and no bogeys. Along with Luke Donald and Rickie Fowler, Poulter is two shots back of Brendan De Jonge who leads at -6.
Overrated, eh? Just a pair of trousers, eh?
