Struggling Tiger Woods misses cut at Genesis Open

World No.58 Cameron Smith has one career PGA Tour title to his credit and is eyeing another in LA

I don't anticipate Woods winning this year's Genesis Open.

Anirban Lahiri looked set to make the midway cut after being even-par with three holes to go at the weather-hit second round of the Genesis Open golf tournament here Friday.

"It means a lot", Watson said. If anything, the only talk of retirement should be whether settle down off Sunset Boulevard.

Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer also won the event, previously known as the Los Angeles Open, three times each.

Finau shot an even-par 71, dropping into a tie for fifth. He fell back with consecutive bogeys from the trees and shot 69.

He hit a sensational shot from 200 yards within inches of the hole for an eagle putt and he made no mistake from close range.

"I feel like if I can just engage and not worry about where I am on a particular hole or what's going on and I just engage and stay present in whatever I'm doing at that particular time, it all turns out better than what you would expect", he said.

Phil Mickelson also was in the hunt. Fifteen players were separated by five shots going into the final round, though the task gets tough with Watson's history.

Yet he had a 15-footer for par and he missed it for a bogey.

"I haven't played golf in years", he said. Far more memorable was getting his 10th career PGA Tour victory. It is mathematically impossible for Woods to be among the golfers making the cut.

Woods has now played 10 rounds of competitive golf since returning from a fourth back surgery, the spinal fusion that took place last April.

Tied with Durant with two holes left, Stricker dropped a stroke back when Durant birdied the par-5 17th. His early struggles included a triple-bogey seven at the par-four fifth. He had three holes remaining in his second round.

In short, the last few years have been hectic for the 2010 U.S. Open champ, who got married in 2013, started a family shortly thereafter and has been heavily involved in a few outside businesses, including his own restaurants.

Aaron Baddeley posted a 67 to be six under and four shots off the lead. He made a third straight bogey.

Ko finished at 14-under 274 and earned $195,000. He won again in 2016 during another week rubbing shoulders with the stars. Ko is a 10-time victor on the Korean LPGA Tour.

Missing the cut at Riviera will offer him extra time to recover from soreness and to prepare for the Honda Classic, which is near his current residence in South Florida.
