Thomas holds lead at Genesis Open

Weather delays wreaked havoc on the Genesis Open's schedule, and Woods didn't take the course for his third round until 6:40 p.m. ET - and Woods will be wishing that he had more daylight to work with.

"He played a handsome round", said playing partner Woods, who started his day with his fifth bogey of the second round. Adam Hadwin, also from Abbotsford, is 5 over through eight holes and 3 over overall.

Woods just missed the fairway with his shot off the 12th tee, and his second shot left him 21 feet from the hole.

Still the 6-under 65 was Woods' lowest score at Riviera Country Club since a fourth round 64 in 2004. Scott played behind him - he got in nine holes - and matched his 65 to join him in the 36-hole lead at 11-under 131. But as Woods noted, six 3-putts is not going to get it done.

Woods started the round in sizzling fashion on Saturday, playing the first four holes at 5 under par with an eagle and three birdies.

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.

Woods has a pretty good idea what he's up against with Thomas, who he was paired with for the first two rounds.

"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.

Woods made further strides up the leaderboard when he drained a 20-foot putt for birdie at 12 and another from 15 feet at the 13th, and he will return to take on a tricky pitch and putt to save par on the 17th having decided it was too dark to complete the hole moments after the klaxons echoed around the course.

"It's a big day, a lot of golf", Scott said.

Two guys who are feeling comfortable: Thomas and McIlroy.

The third round will resume Sunday at 6:45 a.m. PST.

In the morning, after finishing his second round of the rain-delayed tournament, Woods complained he was struggling reading the greens, as evidenced by his four three-putts in Friday's round.

'I got exhausted; there's no doubt, ' Woods said. He was playing with Jordan Spieth, who had a 70 in the morning to finish four behind. 'It was just a long week, and eventually I made a few bad swings.

But he is a shot off the lead after two birdies and one bogey through nine holes of his second round. Instead, the final group still has just under half the tournament to go. On the 570-yard 11th, he followed a blue-line straight drive of 321 yards with a 253-yard fairway wood that put him 10 feet from the hole.

"I couldn't feel my toes", Thomas said of the cold that greeted the early starters. 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. "Somehow we got 72 holes in".
