Anirban Lahiri misses cut at Genesis Open

The 14-time major victor reeled off three birdies and a stunning eagle within his first four holes of the third round before three pars left him at six under.

Tiger Woods claims he endured "one of the worst weeks" he's ever had with regards to his putting at the weekend's Genesis Open.

It was the first time since the second round of the Buick Open in 2009 that he started 5 under through four holes. He also made six birdies but gave shots back by bogeying four holes, including both par 3s on the front nine. He drilled the putt to quickly drop to 4-under for the tournament. He teed off his third round almost nine hours later and got just seven holes in before a quick sleep and an eight-hour final Sunday sprint to the finish. CBS' Jim Nantz lost it when Woods rolled in the birdie putt.

Woods, who went 6-under in a five-hole stretch for just the second time since 2003, is 6-under for the tourney.

Thomas got a lot done in the eight holes he played Saturday - six in the morning to complete the second round, two in the twilight to at least leave Riviera with the lead. And if I make a few more putts, I'm right in the mix.

"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.

That's what it's about when you go through periods when you don't perform up to your standard because we know there is a very, very good player there.

No one has completed the third round, which did not start until mid-Saturday afternoon as the seven-hour delay to start the tournament on Thursday continues to play havoc with the playing schedule.

Former world number one Rory McIlroy was five shots off the pace in a tie for seventh and through three holes when play was called off, a stroke ahead of defending champion Bubba Watson (through four), Jordan Spieth (through four), Jon Rahm (through four) and Kelly Kraft (through five).

'I'm really happy with that, it's put me back in the hunt, ' he said. "I don't know if I'm the only one, but I definitely felt it today...that's the way it goes". And to have that many 3-putts and still shoot 6 under par - take away those 3-putts, I'm 12 under par. 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. It'll mark his first time competing at Golf Club de Chapultec, and normally on such a week he'd use Monday to familiarize himself with the grounds. At both tournaments he has played this year, the 80-time PGA Tour victor has lamented his poor putting, although for different reasons.

"It's going to be a long one", Woods said.

"I'm going to need to be patient because I'm playing so many holes", he said, "stay in it emotionally and stay patient, see what we can do". "Those clubs aren't coming out of the travel case". Ames, tied for the first-round lead with Sandy Lyle after a then-course record 63, had a 68 to keep a share of the top spot at 11-under 131. "Somehow we got 72 holes in".
