HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) Little-known Troy Merritt one-upped the Masters champion Jordan Spieth at the RBC Heritage.

Merritt tied David Frost's tournament mark set in 1994 and topped the leaderboard at 12-under 130, a stroke off the 36-hole event record shared by Jack Nicklaus and Phil Mickelson.
