Jordan Spieth can say it's been his putting that's been letting him down lately, but there might be bigger issues than just the flatstick.

Spieth had a roller-coaster front nine Friday at the Byron Nelson, shooting a 1-over-par 36, which included three birdies, four bogeys, and two pars.

However, the Texan was still well within the cut line when he arrived at the par-5 16th, but that's when it all came apart for the two-time major winner.

The 23-year-old was forced to re-tee twice on the hole, after his first two drives finished out of bounds.

Spieth played his sixth shot toward the left side of the fairway, and then wedged his seventh up near the green, where it would take him two more attempts to get down.

In the end, it was a quadruple-bogey nine for Spieth, the second time he's done that this season.

Spieth hit just 42 percent of the fairways and half of the greens in regulation on Friday en route to a 75.
