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.
