    Tiger endorses Jason Day's pace of play

    Being deliberate is making sure I don’t miss information that I need to hit the right shot.” Increased visibility and TV time for players like Day and Jordan Spieth can add additional pressure and scrutiny when it comes to maintaining a reasonable pace of play, but Day is determined to stay in his routine. “Last year, I felt that I had a lot more peer pressure, and I’m like, ‘I’ve got to speed up play,’" he said.

    Johnson takes 36-hole lead at rainy Riviera

     LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dustin Johnson is closing in on that elusive victory at Riviera, and a shot to reach No. 1 in the world. And he still has a long way to go. Johnson made two tough pars around the turn and poured it on late with three birdies over his last four holes for another 5-under 66 and a one-shot lead in the Genesis Open. It was a good place to be Saturday afternoon, except he was only halfway home at rainy Riviera. The tournament lost an hour to fog Thursday, then seven hours when heavy rain and wind arrived in southern California on Friday, and two more hours Saturday morning to get the course cleaned up for play. So what day is it? "Saturday," Johnson said. "Yeah, I think it's Saturday." He was at 10-under 132 and had a one-shot lead over Pat Perez, who birdied his last two holes for a 66, and Cameron Tringale, whose wedge from 82 yards flew straight into the cup on No. 18 for a birdie and a 64. Jhonattan Vegas finished his second round well before lunch with four pars for a 68.
