Spieth, Kang share lead at rainy Riviera as Woods waits

Spieth, Kang share lead at rainy Riviera as Woods waits

Playing in the first round of the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club in California, Mickelson found sand on each of his first three shots on the par-4 10th hole - then holed out for par.

The ball landed well behind the pin on the left side of the bunker and spun back some 20 feet on the rain-soaked greens of Riviera. "Mark Russell, the tournament director, addressed the players, and the decision was made, due to the fact that we've played so little golf in the first round, and not knowing when the first round is going to resume again, to go ahead and cancel and nullify all scores for the first round and start the field clean again when we get a chance", Rintoul said.

Fourteen-time major champion Tiger Woods carded a one-under-par 70, along with Englishmen Tyrrell Hatton, Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood, with Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy two shots adrift.

Ryder Cup star Tony Finau is three under with six to play, with Marc Leishman and Rafa Cabrera Bello among a large group of players on two under as none of the early starters were able to complete 18 holes on Thursday.

American Nelly Korda, who shot 66 Friday, and Australian Hannah Green (69) were among those tied for third, three strokes behind.

According to prosecutors, Manafort has also failed to hand over financial information to his probation officer as required. Earlier Friday, Trump's spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said she has been interviewed by Mueller's team.


"I paid the penalty for a lot of my missed shots, " she said. The 61-year-old Scot won the 1985 British Open and 1988 Masters. "Like I think I'm a good putter from above the hole and a crappy putter from under the hole, and I seem to hit it just above the hole and I drip them in nicely", he added.

"It was just fantastic how well and how good JT putted today, he made everything", Woods said of Thomas.

"It's not fun if you don't get to play at all", he said. He was so bad from 6ft or less past year that Hank Haney, who used to coach Tiger Woods, reckoned he was afflicted with a form of the yips. Pieters is joined by Panuphol Pittayarat, Matthew Griffin, and Ryan Fox at 8 under at Lake Karrinyup.

Tournament favorite Pieters opened with a birdie in the afternoon wind and would go on to take the outright lead at 9 under with a birdie at No. 14.
