Spieth out at Nelson; Kokrak has career-best 62, leads by 5

James Hahn walks to the 17th green during the first round of the Byron Nelson PGA golf tournament at TPC Four Seasons Resort in Irving Texas Thursday

His best guesses were a frog or rat, though he was too disoriented to be sure.

Garcia had moved to 4 over for the tournament after a bogey on No. 12 before his string of birdies got him back in red numbers.

"Yeah, a bit shocking that's how it happened", said Spieth, who missed the cut by a stroke after a 5-under 75 that included a 9 at the par-5 16th hole after he hit two tee shots out of bounds. So I came up just short.

An Byeong-hun (66), Cameron Tringale (68), Bud Cauley (67), overnight leader James Hahn (70) and Jhonattan Vegas (68) are also six under.

The event is the last at TPC Four Seasons, ending the tournament's 35-year run in Irving.

Defending champion Sergio Garcia, world No. 1 Dustin Johnson and world No. 3 Jason Day were in the afternoon wave.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Patrick Reed has been turning things around lately, recording three straight top 25 finishes after missing three straight cuts in April. "Unfortunately, I kind of misjudged the wind".

"If a shot fits my eye or I see it, I like to pull the trigger", Kokrak said Friday.

After an opening birdie Friday, Spieth missed a 3 1/2-foot par putt at the par-3 second hole.

Spieth also missed the cut last week in The Players Championship.

NEW YORK (AP) - Holly Rowe says her cancer has recurred, just as she's agreed to a multiyear contract extension with ESPN.

Kokrak finished with a nice par save after driving way right at the 18th. On the next hole, he had to bend his second shot around tree from the rough and saved par. His 17-foot birdie try at No. 17 curled by the cup, and he missed a 14-footer on 18. It was just in long grass and I wouldn't be able to flop it over. "You just had to contact it correctly". The two-time tour victor saved par with a 24-footer on 14.

ATLANTA (AP) - The Braves are looking for help at first base after losing Freddie Freeman for about 10 weeks due to a broken left wrist.

After starting his round with six consecutive pars, Pampling went on an impressive run, starting with a 2m birdie putt on the par-5 seventh. He had two bogeys. "I've got to figure out what I'm doing on the greens, first and foremost".

Koepka birdied his first two holes and was 5 under through 13 holes before stumbling late. "I'm normally a pretty aggressive player and that's how I played today". Three under isn't very good around here. He leads by five shots over Billy Horschel. 3-7 on Kingsmill Resort's River Course.

Top-ranked Lydia Ko was among those two strokes back at 67.

The 60-year-old Funk, seeking his first PGA Tour Champions individual title since 2012, had a one-stroke lead over Augusta's Scott Parel in the first of the 50-and-over circuit's five majors.
