Tiger Woods flirting with the cut line in second round

Rose putted for birdie on all but two holes on his way to a 6-under 66, giving him a share of the 36-hole tournament record and a three-shot lead over Hideki Matsuyama going into the weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open. He shot 72 and tied for fifth with Rory McIlroy (69) and defending champion Jason Day (67).

Rose said Fulcher, who underwent a heart valve replacement two weeks ago, was in his thoughts as he captured his 10th PGA Tour title - the most by any Englishman since 1945.

But, double-bogeys on the par-four fourth and 14th holes and a bogey on the par-five 18th hole tarnished his scorecard, though Rose still ended the day in pole position. Given how volatile this course is and how elite this field is, though, anything can (and probably will) happen coming home on Sunday afternoon.

The 43-year-old golfer finished the tournament with a strong final round, though he's nowhere close to contention.

By the time Scott notched birdies on Nos.

Fulcher and Rose teamed up to win the 2013 US Open, the 2016 Olympic gold medal and two World Golf Championships events amid rich form which has taken Rose to the top of world golf.

Woods said a positive finish to the week for him would be if he can "get to double digits" under par for the tournament.

"I think having my feel (is where I'm rustiest), I'd say hitting the ball pin-high, I've always been really good at that my entire career, I wasn't that good at it today", Woods explained. The last time he won in January was in South Africa in 2002, the first of his 22 victories worldwide.

Rose dedicated the victory to his caddie, Mark Fulcher, who had a heart procedure last week and was watching from home.

At the 176-yard par-3 eighth, Rahm hit a tee shot 178 yards at the green, setting himself up for the 5-foot putt for birdie. Rose used Gareth Lord, who previously caddied for Henrik Stenson and knows Rose well from Ryder Cup partnerships. Scott also recorded a birdie on 18.

Woods was on the prowl during the Pro-Am on Wednesday at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego when he walked over to a tent containing a bunch of pizza from Dang Brother Pizza. Now it's Rose, the No. 1 player in the world looking as though he might stay there for a while.

But he delivered big birdie putts on No. 7 and No. 10, short-game shots that took stress of his putter on consecutive holes on the back nine.
