McDowell and Cantlay lead as Woods misses cut at Riviera

LOS ANGELES-- Tiger Woods's return to Riviera Country Club lasted just two days as the 14-time major champion missed the cut in the Genesis Open, where Graeme McDowell and Patrick Cantlay shared the lead on Friday.
Woods's eight bogeys included three in a row on the back nine as he battled to a five-over par 76.
"I really didn't play well today," Woods said. "I missed every tee shot left and I did not putt well, didn't feel very good on the greens and consequently never made a run.
"I knew I had to make a run on that back nine, and I went the other way."
Woods had a 36-hole total of six-over par 148 -- four shots outside the projected cutline as darkness fell and 13 shots off the pace set by McDowell and Cantlay.
McDowell opened his five-under par 66 with three straight birdies at the 10th, 11th and 12th. He followed that with back-to-back bogeys but grabbed four more birdies to surge up the leaderboard.
Cantlay, who shared the overnight lead with Tony Finau, had five birdies in his two-under par 69.
He launched a string of three straight birdies with a near hole-in-one at the par-three sixth, his 15th of the day.
American Sam Saunders was seven-under with three to play when darkness fell with a handful of players on the course.
