Jordan Spieth suffered another blow at the AT&T Byron Nelson on Friday, when he missed his third cut in his last four starts.

Playing near his hometown of Dallas, Texas, many thought former world number one Spieth would get back on track this week.

Unfortunately, that did not happen as two-time major champion Spieth fired a five-over 75 with a quadruple-bogey nine on the par-five 16th hole.

Spieth was well inside the cut line before the implosion that forced him to re-tee twice.

After climbing to summit of golf two years ago, Spieth has dropped down to sixth in the rankings. He has not recorded a top-10 finish since winning at Pebble Beach in February.

Fellow American Jason Kokrak grabbed the 36-hole lead at 12 under after a nearly flawless eight-under 62. He leads by five shots over Billy Horschel.

World number one Dustin Johnson is tied for third at six under after back-to-back 67s.

Spieth hopes Colonial return allows him to board 'new momentum train' .
After missing three cuts in his past four starts, Jordan Spieth is searching for form at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational. After missing his third cut in his last four starts last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson, Spieth is looking for a turnaround in fortunes."This is a great spot to kind of start a new momentum train and get off the bogey train I've been on," Spieth told a news conference on Wednesday.Despite his poor recent form, Spieth – now ranked seventh in the world – believes better finishes are on the horizon."I feel good about the state of my game. It's hard to compare years," he said.
