Jordan Spieth missed some short birdie putts during his first round at the U.S. Open and began Friday at 2-over and with work to do to make the cut. His first nine have been the full Spieth experience, with otherworldly 206-yard iron shots from the rough mixed in with perplexingly duffed wedges. He was even for the day when he reached the par-5 No. 8 and smashed his drive right in the juicy part of the fairway, setting up a reasonable chance at snagging an eagle.

But his second shot was, uh, it was not any good.

Skilled wordsmiths could paint a picture of just how disappointing it was. Spieth, providing his usual running commentary, went for a more succinct portrait.

Not all expletives are created equal. They can get overused but every now and again one crops up and sounds thoroughly satisfying. Like a person was going to explode if they didn't say it.

The roller coaster continued on the third shot as Spieth gave him a convertable birdie opportunity and capitalized.
