Friday was a tale of two past Colonial champions as Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson were paired together at the Charles Schwab Challenge. While Spieth would fire his second consecutive bogey free round to take the solo lead into the weekend, Mickelson bogey two of his last three holes to miss the cut by one stroke.

Spieth is 11-under, one shot ahead of Jason Kokrak, who fired back-to-back 65s to sit at 10-under going into the third round.

First round co-leader Sergio Garcia shot a 1-under 69 to sit three shots behind Spieth at 8-under.

Charley Hoffman shot a 62 to vault 51 spots up the leaderboard into a tie for sixth at 7-under.
