BETHESDA, Md. Luciano Narsingh Jersey . -- Jordan Spieth, playing with nothing to lose, gave himself another chance to win going into the weekend at the AT&T National. Spieth hit every green in regulation Friday and extended his streak to 29 holes without a bogey on a tough Congressional course, giving him a 5-under 66 and a share of the lead with Roberto Castro (69) before storms halted the second round. They were at 7-under 135, with the round to be completed Saturday morning. Players went back out to the practice range after a two-hour delay, only for more storms to approach and extended the suspension until the PGA Tour called it for the day. Andres Romero was at 5 under with five holes remaining. No one else was within four shots of the lead. Spieth is the 19-year-old Texan who started the season with no status, uncertain where he was going to play. He now has earned over $900,000 -- the equivalent of being No. 39 on the PGA Tour money list -- and is assured of a tour card when the new season starts in October. But he wont be eligible for the lucrative FedEx Cup playoffs unless hes a PGA Tour member, and he cant be a member this year unless he wins. "Honestly, I think its a great position to be in," Spieth said. "Im just free swinging. I cant be in the playoffs unless I win, and that makes winning the No. 1 goal. Youd like to get in the playoffs and play against the top players, the best players from this year. Its everyones goal out here to win the FedEx Cup. My goal is to move up the world rankings as much as I can, and thats the way to do it, is to get into those playoffs." D.H. Lee had a 66 and was two shots behind at 5-under 139. Cameron Tringale (67) and James Driscoll (69) were another shot behind, while the group at 3-under 139 included former British Open champion Stewart Cink (69), Gary Woodland (69) and David Lingmerth, who went from around the cut line to contention with a 65. Spieth has lived up to the hype he first generated when he played late on Sunday in the Byron Nelson Championship at age 16 and tied for 16th. In one year at Texas, the Longhorns won the NCAA title. And in six months as a pro, he has shown quickly that he belongs. He already has four top 10s and has special temporary membership, meaning he gets unlimited exemptions. His goal was to somehow get a PGA Tour card for 2013-14 season, and a win would be over the top. Even so, the teenager who was born just three years before Tiger Woods turned pro is savvy to realize the tournament is not even halfway over. "I cant really think about that at this point," he said. "Theres a long way to go. Im kind of free swinging. Ive gotten in a position where I can play a pretty full schedule this year, and I know Ill have my card for next year. Now all theres left to do is try and get a win to make the playoffs. So Im just going out there trying to win and being aggressive, and hopefully, it will work out for me." Scoring was slightly better at Congressional, a course that has hosted the U.S. Open three times. Warmer weather in the morning made the ball fly a little farther and shortened the longest PGA Tour course on the mainland. Spieth began his day with a 25-foot birdie putt on the first hole, avoided a long three-putt from above the hole on No. 4 by making a 12-foot par putt and then picked up four birdies over the final five holes on the front nine for a 31. He made nine pars on the back nine, never coming close to a bogey. It was a clean round, executed well by a teenagers who plays like he knows where he is going. "Im excited for what the weekend is going to bring," he said. Castro tied the course record on the TPC Sawgrass in May with a 63 to lead the opening round of The Players Championship, and then he followed with a 78 and never seriously challenge the rest of the week. After opening with a 66 at Congressional, he dropped a shot early from a fairway bunker on No. 3 and was plodding along until finishing the back nine with a pair of birdies, and then adding a birdie on the par-5 16th. "I felt good," he said. "I probably learned a lot there (at Sawgrass) and realized that one round doesnt mean anything -- just got to keep going. And I was able to do that." Defending champion Woods is not playing because of an elbow injury, and U.S. Open champion Justin Rose withdrew earlier in the week because of fatigue. Some of the other big names most likely wont be around for the weekend, such as Hunter Mahan, who had a 72 and was at 5-over 147. Masters champion Adam Scott traded birdies and bogeys in his round of 71 that left him nine shots behind. Brandt Snedeker had to salvage a scrappy round with two late birdies for a 71, leaving him five shots behind. DIVOTS: The tee on the par-5 ninth hole was moved forward Friday, making it play only 613 yards. Six players went for the green in two -- compared with none Thursday when the hole was 635 yards -- with Angel Cabrera and Jason Day going just over the back. Both made birdie. ... Charlie Beljan, who opened with an 84, called officials Friday morning to say he had withdrawn. ... Russell Henley holed out from 149 yards for eagle on No. 9. He was at 3-under 139.
