Genesis Open: Anirban Lahiri Misses Cut; Tiger Woods Makes a Good Start

Anirban Lahiri, Indian golfer bogeyed two of his last three holes in the second round to miss the cut at the Genesis Open tournament in Pacific Palisades (USA).

Anirban ended with rounds of 77-73. He was rather low on the leaderboard at nine-over as the cut fell at even par.

After a three-week break during which Lahiri became a first-time father, he returned for Honda Classic, hoping to find his rhythm back.

Justin Thomas seeks the 10th win of his PGA TOUR career. He was at 13 under and has a one-shot lead over playing partner Adam Scott, with Patrick Rodgers and J B Holmes another shot back.

 

Tiger Woods Starts Superbly in the 3rd Round

Tiger Woods was one shot above the cut line after the second round. Now he has sprung into action and a tie for 14th with a birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie start off the 10th tee in the third round.

“I’ve got some work to do,” said Woods, who hoped to get up-and-down to save par at the 17th once play resumes.

For all the 76 players who made a cut, it will be a longer-than-usual tournament. No one from the 76 participants has completed the third round, that did not even start until the mid-Saturday afternoon as the seven-hour delay to start the tournament on Thursday continues to play havoc with the playing schedule.

In reality, The Genesis Open is just past the halfway mark with only the final day left.

Thomas played only eight holes on Saturday and Rodgers played 20 holes. After shooting a 4-under 67, fuelled by a chip-in eagle from 131 yards on the par-4 seventh, he played two holes to start his third round, including an eagle at the par-5 opening hole.

Adam Scott only bogeyed through 38 holes was a three-putt on the 17th hole in the second round. Adam is paired with Thomas for both the third and final rounds.

Names of the notables ahead of Woods on the leaderboard include last week’s runner-up are: Casey (also at 8-under ), Jordan Spieth (at 7-under), Rory McIlroy at 8-under), three-time Genesis Open champion Bubba Watson (at 7-under), and world number 6 Jon Rahm (also at 7-under).
