Kokrak in pole position at AT&T Byron Nelson but Spieth misses cut

James Hahn of the US hits a shot on the 15th tee during round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson at the TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas in Irving Texas

Jason Kokrak earned a record lead at the AT&T Byron Nelson as two-time major champion Jordan Spieth sensationally missed the cut.

Jason Kokrak grabbed the 36-hole lead at 12 under after a almost flawless 8-under 62 Friday.

"It jumped out and I didn't know what was going on, freaked me out", said Koepka, who needed help from a bevy of tournament volunteers and fans to find his ball while hitting two shots out of the thick grass and just missing a chip that would have saved par on the ninth hole, his last. He has not recorded a top-10 finish since winning at Pebble Beach in February.

World number one Dustin Johnson is one of six men on six under after a three-under-par 67 and he will hope to be in contention come Sunday night.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Lexi Thompson had six birdies in a seven-hole stretch and finished with a 6-under 65 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Kingsmill Championship.

Johnson two-putted from 90 feet on the 18th hole to stay a part of his group. After responding with a 16-foot birdie putt on the par-3 13th, Garcia had to scramble from the right rough for his birdie on the par-4 15th.

On the 16th hole alone, Spieth went from one under to three over par.

Byeong Hun An had a bogey-free 66 to get into the tie for third with Johnson, Bud Cauley (67), Cameron Tringale (68), Jhonttan Vegas (68) and first-round co-leader James Hahn (70).

"All week I've been feeling better and better with the putter", said Kokrak. He played four times in six weeks upon his return until taking a post-Masters break to get married.

Thompson is playing her third tournament since losing the ANA Inspiration in a playoff after being penalized four strokes for a rules violation that a TV viewer spotted.

Funk birdied three of the five par 3s at Greystone, the last on No. 17, and finished at 12-under 132.

Kokrak had the 36-hole lead for only the second time in 146 career PGA Tour starts.

Piller shot a 67, closing birdie-bogey-birdie-bogey.

The 22-year-old Thompson played alongside Piller and defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn, who had 72.
