Jordan Spieth offered a reminder of his class on a rain-affected opening round in Los Angeles

  • Jordan Spieth has a share of the lead on a rain-delayed Genesis Open first round
  • The field endured a seven-hour stoppage and nobody completed 18 holes
  • But Spieth impressed, hitting five birdies to take a share of the early lead

Jordan Spieth has become something of a forgotten man, tumbling to his lowest world ranking position in almost six years after just one top 10 worldwide since the Masters last year.

But, on a tortuous Thursday at Riviera for the first round of the Genesis Open, the 25 year old Texan showed he is up for the fight to get his career back on track with a gutsy performance.

After a seven hour delay while a ferocious storm passed through Southern California, no-one was able to complete 18 holes, but Spieth was still able to impress in the 12 that he played before darkness set in.
