Thomas, Scott share early lead at Riviera

Six 3-putts is - I don't think I've ever done that. That was positive, and I got off to a nice little roll.

"It's a good veteran move, and it helped me carry over the momentum from the morning". Scott played behind him - he got in nine holes - and matched his 65 to join him in the 36-hole lead at 11-under 131.

Scott will resume at 12 under par, one shot ahead of third-placed Americans Patrick Rogers and JB Holmes, who is also in the final group.

"I know that 1 [under] is going to get in, even par will be back and forth all afternoon". "Up early and start working on it and staying loose and staying ready". Just like that, he was tied for 12th as the leaders were just getting going.

Rory McIlroy surged up the Genesis Open leaderboard by completing a second-round of 8-under 63 on Saturday, while Tiger Woods looked to have done just enough to make the cut.

The 14-time major victor made a priceless birdie at the ninth hole to finish his round in the split-tee format and he was confident that would keep him around for the remainder of the weekend. After needing 34 in the first round, he took 27 in the second, making an eagle, three birdies and five bogeys.

Last year, Woods missed the cut at Riviera, and now he is about to embark on a stretch during which he should be able to find some form, first at the limited-field Mexico event and then likely at places such as Bay Hill and the Players Championship, where he has had success. "I've got to get in two solid rounds".

The 43-year-old is now six-under for the tournament, still seven shots behind leader Justin Thomas.

However, this weekend's PGA Tour event has had to be condensed due to bad weather, meaning more time out on the course for the players.

"It's different, " he said.

"I am not seeing the [putting] line".

'Consequently, I'm having a hard time starting my ball on line because I have a hard time seeing it.

'Can't get any worse than it was the first day; four 3-putts is as bad as a human being can putt'.

McIlroy still had six holes of his second round to complete and had hoped to play them in no worse than two under, but he exceeded his target by double with a stunning run of putts, in stark contrast to the series of chances he missed in his frustrating, opening 72.

Woods' 65 matched his second-best in tournament history at Riviera, where he has never won. Along with one year when the tournament went to Valencia Country Club, Woods has played this event the most of any in his career without a victory.
