Patient Graeme McDowell Shares The Lead After Two Rounds At Genesis Open

Patient Graeme McDowell Shares The Lead After Two Rounds At Genesis Open

Woods failed to make the weekend at the Riviera Country Club after shooting a 76 during Friday's second round, leaving him on five over through two rounds. "I missed every tee shot left and I did not putt well, didn't feel very good on the greens and consequently never made a run", Woods told reporters following an eight-bogey day on which his entire game was out of sync.

He went through the back nine on equal par but picked up shots including a 31-foot for birdie on the par-3 6th.

"Just not to feel sore, to feel like I can play all-out again within, what, three days off", Woods said.

Woods was playing his second PGA Tour tournament of the season, having made his long-awaited comeback from back problems at the Farmers Insurance Open last month.

A total of 23 players are within five strokes of the lead, including four-time Major victor Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas, who both played alongside Woods, and carded rounds of 71 and 69 respectively. He was tied with Graeme McDowell (66), the former U.S. Open champion who is trying to work his way back from a two-year slump.

"You got to know that this golf course is going to make you mess up", he said. "But then nice eagle at the first and played much better on our second nine".

Playing on Friday afternoon, the noise was so loud, McIlroy said, that the first thing he would do after signing his card was take a couple of Advil. I had two three putts from just off the edge...

"It was really, really, really strong to start and then laid down a little bit, kind of switched".

The president has repeatedly slammed the agency and its leaders, writing on Twitter that its reputation was in "tatters". Students who knew him described a volatile teenager whose odd behavior had caused others to end friendships.

Countrymen Geoff Ogilvy (74, four over) and Marc Leishman (73, five over) are set to miss the weekend.

Justin Thomas, No. 4, made five birdies but almost offset those with three bogeys on his way to a 69. "I've dealt with it for a very long time". He struggled a little bit more today, but he hits enough good shots to know that if he sort of pieces it all together, he's going to be right there.

Held at PGA National Golf Club in Florida, the Honda Classic is an event Woods has never won.

Johnson moved into first in the Official World Golf Ranking with last year's victory at Riviera and has kept that position ever since.

American's world number one Dustin Johnson posted five birdies and an eagle to surge up the leaderboard with a seven-under 64.

"I've got a headache after all that", admitted McIlroy.

Watson, energized perhaps by his appearance in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday night, produced his signature moment right out of the gate.
