JUSTIN ROSE LOSES LEAD AT TORREY PINES

Top Golfer Justin Rose lost his lead at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines after the third round.


Rose led the tourney after the first two rounds but he soon carded a one-over-par 73. He slipped back to seven under but the Olympic champ remains just two shots off current leaders Patrick Rodgers and Brandt Snedeker.

Rodgers is gunning for his first PGA Tour and he would be hoping his lead last long enough. He fired five birdies in the third round in his 67 to place join top. He would face a tough one aganst defending champ Snedeker who has compiled a 70.

“The conditions were awesome, that’s why we came to San Diego, the sun was out and there was no wind, so it was fun to make a few birdies,” Rodgers said to pgatour.com

Eight people are seven under but Rose would be hoping to move out of that class soon enough. Fourteen-time major champion and legend Tiger Woods did not even make the cut on Friday after he returned to his first PGA Tour event in almost a year and half due to back injury.

“It’s frustrating not being able to have a chance to win the tournament Overall today was a lot better than yesterday. I hit it better, I putted well again. I hit a lot of beautiful putts that didn’t go in, but I hit it much better today, which was nice,” Woods said after the round.

World number one Jason Day and the US Open champ Dustin Johnson missed the cut as well.

Like Rodgers, Tony Finau shot 67 to move up to eight under alongside Cheng Tsung Pan. Shane Lowry tied 58th as his 72 ensured he remained at lever par.

The Englishman, Rose, who became the leader overnight carded a one-under 71 to go eight under in the first round. Snedeker was second but he was tied with Canadian Adam Hadwin. Rose would have to work to recover his lead.
