Dustin Johnson accidentally kicked the ball of his player partner Jordan Spieth, whose drive had come to rest in the rough on the 7th hole. But there was not to be a repeat of last year's dramas.
Spieth consulted with a rules official, and under Rule 20–3C was allowed a free drop near where his ball had originally come to rest. Neither player was assessed a penalty, according to Rule 18–4.
Spieth birdied the hole and made the weekend, but Johnson missed the 1–over cut. He's got Paulina to get back to, and a 5-day old boy. Bless.
