Thomas seizes Riviera lead as Woods surges

Thomas seizes Riviera lead as Woods surges

Unfortunately, according to the weatherman, it won't last. Although golf has traditionally been more focused on finesse over fitness, this may well come down to a strongman contest. Holmes. Woods got to 6 under par through seven holes, but he will need to get up and down for a par from 30 feet at the par-5 17th.

Although he got hot on the greens at the start of the third round when he went birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie, he was disappointed in his putting overall. He'll likely have two more rounds to iron out the kinks before heading south of the border for next week's WGC-Mexico Championship. Lefty probably won't pull off the rare doubleheader at Riviera Country Club, considering he'll begin the final day a dozen shots off the lead, but he's officially flirting with ironman status after having his first hole - a par at No. 10 that included shots from three different bunkers - wiped from the records when officials opted to restart the round on Thursday.

The 14-time major victor reeled off three birdies and an eagle in his first four holes of the third round before three pars left him at six under. That run included a birdie at his final hole of the second round to fully secure himself a weekend tee time and a birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie start to Round 3.

He did get on a roll during a 27-hole stretch of the third round and the first nine holes of the fourth, playing them in 9 under par to climb the leaderboard, before falling back.

Rory McIlroy finished off a 63 in the morning to get back in the game, and he had one birdie through three holes in the third round.

"Yeah, I got exhausted", Woods said. "I didn't have four three-putts out there (as he did in the first round)". "I'm a little bit exhausted". Woods, who has not missed a cut since the U.S. Open, has missed 15 of his 19 PGA Tour cuts starting in 2010 and missed two in 2018.

"It's not going to be light yet, I don't think", Woods said Saturday evening in a CBS interview. Hopefully I can find it in here in the last couple rounds.

You won't believe who showed up at Jennifer Aniston's 50th birthday
A source told People website that Aniston was " very happy that he showed up" and "they hugged and chatted for a bit". Shortly after, Brad began a relationship with his Mr & Mrs Smith co-star Angelina Jolie , whom he married in 2014.

But he told the PGA Tour website that a fresh pair of socks helped him between rounds.

"If the greens were normal I wouldn't have been able to take that route as easily", said Thomas, who said that on the rain-softened green he knew the shot would "pretty much stick right where it lands".

"I think I've seen briefly the forecast is pretty hard, so I'm going to need to be patient because I'm playing so many holes", Thomas said. A month after winning the San Diego Open, he turned pro and finished one shot behind Ed Furgol in the U.S. Open at Baltusrol.

But Scott, who won the 2005 event at Riviera when it was shortened to 54 holes due to severe rain, has made just one bogey in 38 holes this week.

But he is a shot off the lead after two birdies and one bogey through nine holes of his second round.

"You always feel better with fresh feet", Scott grinned while holding up the wet pair from earlier in the day at his locker.
