Thomas, Scott share 36-hole lead at Riviera

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Sports - BY DOUG FER­GU­SON As­so­ci­ated Press

Justin Thomas and Adam Scott each com­pleted rounds of 6-un­der 65 on Satur­day and shared the lead when the sec­ond round fi­nally ended in the rain-de­layed Ge­n­e­sis Open.

Both played only six holes, fin­ished when break­fast was still be­ing served in the Riviera club­house, and were likely to play only a few holes of third round in what day­light was left.

They were a shot ahead of J.B. Holmes (69). Jor­dan Spi­eth ( 70) was three shots be­hind, while Tiger Woods fin­ished with a birdie for a 71 and was 10 shots be­hind.

The start of the tour­na­ment was de­layed seven hours be­cause of rain. The plan was to com­plete the third round Sun­day morn­ing and keep the same groups for the fi­nal round im­me­di­ately after.

Thomas and Scott were at 11-un­der 131.


Adam Scott, of Aus­tralia, hits his sec­ond shot Satur­day on the ninth hole as sec­ond round play con­tin­ues dur­ing the Ge­n­e­sis Open golf tour­na­ment in Los An­ge­les.
