Justin Rose holds on to three-shot lead

Woods was satisfied with his putting on day one

World number one Justin Rose shook off two double bogeys to card a three-under par 69 on Saturday and maintain a three-shot lead in the US PGA Farmers Insurance Open.

As the Northern Ireland star chiselled out a workmanlike one-under 71 on the testing, 7,698-yard South Course, 2017 champion Rahm (24) ripped up the more benign North Course, making the first of two eagles at his opening hole and adding seven birdies to match the lowest round of his PGA Tour career.

Rose led by as many as six strokes, but his second double bogey of the day, at the par-four 14th, trimmed the lead and he closed with a bogey at the par-five 18th, where his second shot from the left rough found the water.

He surged into the mix with a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 5 on the South, a 40-foot eagle putt on the next hole and a tee shot to 4 feet for birdie on the par-3 eighth.

The tournament's final 36 holes will be played on the South course, which was ranked the eighth hardest on the PGA Tour past year and hosted the 2008 US Open.

Tiger Woods waits to tee off on the South Course during the final round of the the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course on January 27, 2019 in San Diego, California. "If you take into account the town and the vibe around Torrey Pines, this is my favourite golf course and golf tournament". Scott pulled within two by hitting his approach to a foot on the 17th.

Tiger Woods, an eight-time victor at Torrey Pines, picked up one shot in a round of 71 and finished at five under.

The second match saw nearly every top order batsman get a start but none of them could go on to convert that into a big score. Should India seal the series on Monday, one can expect team management to indulge in some rotation for the last two ODIs.

Leader Rose ran in a series of mid-length putts, few better than a 20-footer from the fringe for eagle at the par-five ninth.

'Overall, shooting a couple under par on the South course is not so bad, ' Woods said.

"I've worked hard and I've trained hard", Matsuyama said.

Woods enjoyed a fine season a year ago, winning his first tournament since August 2013 at the Tour Championship in September. What we've got now is a strong second-tier competitor, a guy who every so often can put together a little magic like he did on his back nine on Sunday.

"I felt I drove it halfway decent today and irons were good, but not great". Didn't know if I could make it to Florida, first of all. Playing at competitive speed again, I didn't quite hit all my irons pin high like I normally do.

"It's nice to get the North out of the way, shoot a good score, just what you have to do", Rose said.
