Jordan Spieth was disqualified from the 2024 Genesis Invitational on Friday after signing for an incorrect scorecard at following his second round. Spieth signed for par (3) on the par-3 4th hole when he actually made a bogey (4), according to the PGA Tour. The unfortunate ending to Spieth's tournament marks his first weekend omission since the 2023 Scottish Open.

"Today, I signed for an incorrect scorecard and stepped out of the scoring area after thinking I went through all procedures to make sure it was correct," Spieth explained on social media. "Rules are rules, and I take full responsibility. I love this tournament and golf course as much as any on [the PGA Tour], so it hurts to not have a run at the weekend."

The 30-year-old got his Genesis Invitational off to a blistering start alongside 18- and 36-hole leader Patrick Cantlay. Making six birdies across his first 11 holes of the tournament, Spieth was right in the thick of it following his first-round 66.

His second round did not go as smoothly. An early birdie on the par-5 1st was offset by the dropped shot on the par-3 4th (which he signed incorrectly).

Spieth bounced back with a chip in, adding another birdie on the par-4 7th to hit the turn 2 under. The back nine got the better of Spieth, though, as he rattled off three bogeys across the first six holes. A reprieve from the dropped shots came with a birdie on the par-5 17th before a messy double bogey on the closing 18th put a bow on a 2-over 73.

Spieth stood at 3 under and in a share of 20th before the disqualification.
