Hoffman takes the lead; Spieth misses another cut
NORTON, Mass. (AP) Jordan Spieth has missed the cut in consecutive events for the first time in his career.
The Masters and U.S. Open champion reeled off three bogeys in a five-hole stretch on the back nine Saturday at the Deutsche Bank Championship. He didn’t make a birdie until the final hole, but by then it was too late. He shot a 74 and missed the cut by three shots.
Charley Hoffman had another low round at the TPC Boston with nine birdies for a 63. That gave him a three-shot lead over Brendon de Jonge.
Even though he missed another cut, Spieth still could return to No. 1 in the world after this event.
