Canadian Hughes shares lead with McGirt at Players Championship

  Canadian Hughes shares lead with McGirt at Players Championship Canadian rookie Mackenzie Hughes played bogey-free in his debut at The Players Championship and shot a 5-under 67 to share the lead with William McGirt. Hughes already has won in his first PGA Tour season at Sea Island. He had one of only four bogey-free rounds at TPC Sawgrass. McGirt had a pair of eagles on the back nine for his 67.Among those at 68 were Spain’s Jon Rahm.As usual, the Stadium Course packed plenty of excitement — an ace of the island green for Masters champion Sergio Garcia — and plenty of punishment. Adam Scott had a one-shot lead when he finished with a pair of double bogeys.

WATCH: Jordan Spieth makes disastrous quadruple - bogey 9 at 15th hole. The usually exemplary putter then uncharacteristically missed that short one, too, resulting in a dreaded quadruple - bogey 9 . He would go on to get one shot back with a birdie at 16, finishing the day with a three-over 75.

– Jordan Spieth ’s nightmare at Augusta National continues. The 23-year-old famously made quadruple bogey on No. 12 in last year’s final round of the Masters as part of a collapse from a back- nine five-shot lead to a T-2 finish.

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.

Oosthuizen, Stanley share 36-hole lead at THE PLAYERS

  Oosthuizen, Stanley share 36-hole lead at THE PLAYERS Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley each shot 6-under-par 66s Friday at THE PLAYERS Championship to share the 36-hole lead at 9-under par.&nbsp;Oosthuizen made six birdies and 12 pars in his round, and has just one blemish this week, which came at the par-3 eighth hole Thursday.

As expected, Spieth was up to the challenge, hit the green, and parred the hole. He won’t make another quad at Augusta for another 30 years, right? From there he managed to get it on the putting surface, but then uncharacteristically three-putted for a quadruple - bogey nine .

Not wanting to make the same mistake again, his fifth shot (after taking a drop) flew the green. From there, he chipped on and had a second straight three-putt. The damage added up to a nine , giving Spieth quadruple bogeys in consecutive Masters rounds.

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.
