Luke List sets target on tough scoring day at Honda Classic

Golf round-up Lahiri has tough time at Honda Classic Sharmila makes cut in Australia

Tiger Woods (+1) also remains on the brink of contention after firing a one-over 71, while Justin Thomas (-1), Louis Oosthuizen (-1), Keegan Bradley (+1) and Jason Dufner (+1) are among the other notable players still in the mix. Another shot back are Dominic Bozzelli, Jamie Lovemark, Russell Henley and Ben Crane. Alex Noren, the first-round leader, who was playing right behind Woods, shot 75 Friday. That is one shot better than defending champion Rickie Fowler, who carded a pair of birdies and three bogeys in his opening-round 71. Instead, he came up a yard short and into the water, made double bogey and shot 72.

Playing in consistent winds of 15-20 miles per hour, Noren began his round on the back nine.

List was in the first group of the day to tee off at 6:45 on the 10th hole.

"Another tough day", he said. "It's so tough in the wind, you have to hit the ball so well to hit your targets".

"My putting feels good". He has never missed the cut in consecutive PGA Tour events when completing 36 holes.

"Maybe he looks like he's got a bit too much tension in his setup, he looks a little too bent over to me".

Simpson turned in an equally impressive round during the afternoon wave.

Day two of the Honda Classic will happen under mostly sunny skies with a 20 percent chance of rain and unusually warm temperatures. There were eight scores of triple bogey or worse with the hole playing a total of 104 over par. The ball he hit in the water on 15 was a really good shot.

The fourth-ranked Thomas is the highest-ranked player in the field this week. Woods was cruising along until he reached the infamous "Bear Trap". He hit 9 of 14 fairways and only 11 of 18 greens, but scrambled well in finishing with only 25 putts on the round. He tied for third the following year before missing the cut again in 2017.

"His iron game is way better, his driver is way better ... and I don't see it going backward from here, " Snedeker said. You know, four back on this golf course with 36 holes to go, anybody can win this golf tournament right now. He gave a shot back with a bogey on the 16th hole after hitting his approach into a green-side bunker, making his turn at 1-under 34. - The noise echoed off the hospitality suites as Tiger Woods emerged from a tunnel and onto the 17th tee at PGA National late Friday afternoon, a sun-baked gallery of thousands in full throat.

"It just seemed that when we had a right-to-left wind the pin would be on the right and then vice-versa, so it was hard to get it close".

A Woods birdie on the ninth hole got him to 1-under and electrified the huge crowds following his every move.
