Tiger misses cut at Riviera, Finau two back

Genesis Open- Round Three

Playing just his third event since a fourth back surgery a year ago, Woods struggled to find any rhythm and maintain any momentum on a Riviera Country Club track that has often befuddled him.

It was announced Friday, after Woods began his second round, that he is playing the Honda Classic next week. If he tees it up on Thursday, it will mark the first time that Woods has played in back-to-back tournaments since the 2015 PGA Championship and Wyndham Championship.

What stood out over two days is that Woods can't afford to drop shots the way Thomas and McIlroy can.

Woods hit eight bogeys and three birdies to leave him on six over - four shots off the projected cut. Cantlay's tee shot settled 62 feet from the hole on the left side of the green, a troublesome spot considering there was a bunker in the middle of the green that completely blocked his path. He pulled that left and made a third straight bogey. A three-putt on the 16th proved to be the final nail in his coffin. He struggled a little bit more [Friday], but he hit enough good shots to know that if he sort of pieces it all together, he's going to be right there. "It's nice to be back competing again and to be able to go out there and play, practice after each round - something I haven't done in years - keep building", he said.

"I did the same thing, I hit a couple of stray ones, kind of took a little 15-minute hiatus from talking to the guys then came back".

"He wants to get back and feel if he's got it again", Faldo said. "I just need to clean up my rounds".

Rory McIlroy, who missed the cut at last week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, sits tied for 15th after going round in 69, two under for the round and the tournament.

Oxfam's United Kingdom chief says critics are gunning for the charity
Byanyima told the BBC that "what happened in Haiti and afterwards is a stain on Oxfam that will shame us for years". She said another involved an assault on a teenage volunteer by a staff member in a charity shop in Britain.

"He is very close", McIlroy said about Woods.

That still gave him a two-stroke cushion over Finau, who was in the clubhouse on five-under after an even-par 71. "I've got a lot of room for improvement and a long way to go".

Sam Saunders also was at 7-under, making back-to-back birdies until it was too dark to continue.

McDowell has gone 59 starts worldwide since his last victory and has fallen out of the top 200 in the world.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson shot a 2-under-par 69, advancing from a tie for 107th place to a tie for 52nd. He was at 1-over 143.

Bubba Watson - who headed to Staples Center after his round to participate in the NBA's celebrity All-Star Game on Friday night - is among the group at 4-under after shooting 70.
