LOS ANGELES — Justin Thomas got a lot done in eight holes Saturday, leaving with a one-shot lead over Adam Scott in the rain-delayed Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club.
Thomas played six holes in the morning, nearly holing a 9-iron and then making par with a flop shot on the green and over the bunker on the par-3 sixth as he made a six-under-par 65 to share the 36-hole lead with Scott, who also had a 65.
They started the third round in the afternoon with only about 45 minutes of daylight, and Thomas holed a 12-foot eagle putt to take the lead.
Tiger Woods made a 25-foot birdie putt from the fringe on his final hole of the second round and made the cut with one shot to spare. To start his third round, he made birdie on No. 10, hit a 3-wood to 10 feet for eagle on the par-5 11th and holed a 20-foot birdie putt on the 12th and a 15-foot birdie putt on the 13th. He remained seven shots behind.
