FORT WORTH, Texas — Jordan Spieth normally doesn’t concern himself with the cut line in the middle of a round.

Unless the Dallas native is in danger of staying home on consecutive weekends in what amount to his hometown events.

Spieth recovered from a bad start by going 5 under over his final 13 holes at the Colonial on Friday, and his 2-under 68 put the defending champion at 2-under 138, four shots behind second-round leaders Webb Simpson, Kevin Kisner, Danny Lee and Scott Piercy.

“When your back’s against the wall and you feel the nerves kick up because you’ve got to do something, and you’re not going to be able to play both weekends in town,” said Spieth, coming off missed cuts in The Players Championship and AT&T Byron Nelson. “That would have been really, really tough for me to swallow if I missed the cut. And it was in my head.”

Lee birdied the last hole for a 64, the low round of the tournament on a hot and windy day. Kisner also had a birdie on his final hole, the ninth, for a second straight 67. Simpson, the 2012 U.S. Open champion, and Piercy each shot 66 to join the group at 6-under 134.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia (66) and fellow Spaniard Jon Rahm (69), who played in the same group, were at 5 under along with England’s Paul Casey (66) and Sean O’Hair (68).

LPGA: Sung Hyun Park shot a 7-under 65 to take a two-stroke lead after the second round of the LPGA Volvik Championship in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The South Korean player enters the weekend at 12 under, with Minjee Lee (66) and Suzann Pettersen (67) tied for second.

First-round leaders Stacy Lewis and Wei-Ling Hsu shot 72s and trail Park by five strokes.

 Ai Miyazato is retiring at the end of the season, capping an exceptional career that included nine victories and a No. 1 ranking.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Bernhard Langer made five straight birdies after the wind died down on a punishing day at Trump National, regaining the lead in the Senior PGA Championship as darkness fell in Sterling, Virginia.

Langer was 11 under through 13 holes in the second round when play was stopped, one shot ahead of Vijay Singh, who shot 68 in wind measured at more than 30 mph. Billy Andrade was 9 under after a 68.

The wind was so strong that play was temporarily halted and whitecaps formed on the muddy Potomac River. Singh and Andrade were eight shots better than the field average.

When play resumed after the delay, Langer grinded out three pars in the teeth of the wind before starting his birdie run.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Belgian Ryder Cup star Thomas Pieters, Italy’s Francesco Molinari and Scotland’s Scott Jamieson shared the halfway lead in the BMW PGA Championship at Virginia Water, England.

The trio were at 7-under, one shot ahead of Germany’s Max Kieffer.

Pieters recorded a 3-under 69, Molinari birdied the final two holes for a 70, and Jamieson also carded a 70.
