Tiger Woods had three straight bogeys early on the back nine Friday and didn’t play nearly well enough to make up for it. He shot 5-over-par 76 and missed the cut in the Genesis Open at Riviera in Los Angeles for the first time in nine appearances as a pro.
He was at 6-over 148, one shot worse than his PGA Tour debut as a 16-year-old at Riviera.
‘‘I missed every tee shot left and I did not putt well, didn’t feel very good on the greens,’’ Woods said. ‘‘And consequently, never made a run. I knew I had to make a run on that back nine, and I went the other way.’’
Patrick Cantlay ran off three straight birdies toward the end of his morning round, starting with a tap-in on the par-3 sixth when he missed a hole-in-one by a fraction of an inch, and shot a 69. He was tied with Graeme McDowell (66), the former US Open champion who is trying to work his way back from a two-year slump.
They were at 7-under 135.
Sam Saunders also was at 7 under, making back-to-back birdies until it was too dark to continue. He had three holes remaining in his second round. Ryan Moore bogeyed his final hole for a 68 and was one shot behind at 136.
Rory McIlroy overcame a few short misses on the front nine for a 69 and was at 2-under 140.
‘‘He is very close,’’ McIlroy said about Woods. ‘‘Give him a little bit of time.’’
Cantlay was coming off a three-putt bogey when his tee shot at the par-3 sixth — the hole with a bunker in the middle of the green — landed above the flag and to the right, and then rolled back down the slope just over the right edge of the cup.
LPGA — Overnight leader Jin Young Ko shot a 3-under 69 to increase her lead to three strokes after two rounds of the Women’s Australian Open in Adelaide, Australia. The South Korean had a 36-hole total of 10-under 134 on the Kooyonga Golf Club course.
Champions — Miguel Angel Jimenez eagled the par-5 third hole and shot an 8-under 64 to take a one-stroke lead in the Chubb Classic in Naples, Fla.
