    It was a busy day a the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson in Last Colinas and the end for hometown favorite Jordan Spieth.

    Spieth had all sorts of problems on the back nine. He spent plenty of time hitting behind the trees with some of his shots going off the fairway.

    On the 16th hole alone, Spieth went from one under to three over par. He finished the day at three over and missed the cut.

    "[I was] just trying to do too much, trying to move up the leaderboard instead of just letting it come to me on this course," Spieth said afterwards. "Last year I had a scenario where I could win going into the final round, but I felt like I really needed to make a move today or would fall pretty far behind, and I just tried to do it in the wrong ways and it just set me back a little bit."

    Big-hitting Jason Kokrak, ranked 128th in the world, shot a bogey-free 8-under 62 for his career-best scoring round and has a five-stroke lead through 36 holes.

    This will be the 35th and final year for the tournament at the Four Seasons Las Colinas. Next year, the tournament moves to the Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, a new course designed by Ben Crenshaw and his longtime architecture partner, Bill Coore.
