  Jordan Spieth misses first cut at major since 2014 Jordan Spieth had a terrible finish to his round at the US Open on Friday that will result in him missing the cut. Spieth bogeyed the 17th and 18th holes to finish at +9 for the tournament, with the projected cut at eight over. The real heartbreaker was a birdie putt on 18 he missed from fairly close range, leaving him to settle for par.Spieth was part of a great group featuring him, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy, but only one is set to continue for the rest of the weekend. All three players carded high scores on the first day before bouncing back with more impressive rounds on Friday at Shinnecock Hills.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas revealed a curious case of blissful ignorance Tuesday at Shinnecock Hills.

Both learned of the U.S. Golf Association changing its 18-hole playoff to determine ties. In the event of a tie, the U.S. Open will now be a two-hole aggregate playoff.

The decision was announced in February.

"It's still 18 holes, right?" Spieth asked when questioned. "I didn't even know."

Spieth suggested he had looked at Monday's weather forecast with the old 18-hole format in mind.

The course is also subject to severe, sometimes twisting Hamptons winds, and it’s long as hell: 7,448 yards for a course that only works out to a par-70 track.

(AP) -- PGA champion Justin Thomas ran off eight birdies on a long, wet TPC Boston for a Johnson, coming off a playoff victory last week in New York, sarcastically Spieth shot a second straight 66 and was surprised that left him two shots behind, all because of Thomas and Leishman.

"So shows you what I know," he said.

Hours later, Thomas visited the media center and mentioned some lunch-time discussion about Spieth's admission.

"I saw about three people say he didn't know. I'm like well, I'm glad I read this because I didn't know either," Thomas said.

So there you have it. Two of the game's more detail-driven players apparently so focused on their game that they didn't know about a historic change in policy.

"I mean, if I have a chance to win the U.S. Open, I don't care if it's a two-hole playoff or a 72-hole tournament," Thomas said. "I'll take a playoff right now."

Just be ready to head to the 17th tee Sunday.
