World number one Rose on top at Farmers, Woods narrowly makes cut

World number one Justin Rose shot a six-under-par 66 to open up a three-stroke halfway lead at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego.While Tiger Woods posted his second consecutive 70 to slip 11 strokes off the pace, Rose excelled on the Torrey Pines south course in southern California to sit at the top of the leaderboard on 15-under 129, matching the best 36-hole score for a PGA Tour event at the venue.Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama showed signs of life after a recent period in the doldrums, matching Rose’s 66 on the south course to jump into second place on 12-under.Matsuyama was ranked world number two less than 18 months ago but has slipped to 33rd.Spanish overnight leader Jon Rahm battled to a 72 at the south course to slip five strokes behind Rose, equal third with Americans Billy Horschel (68) and Ryan Palmer (67).Rose found fairway bunkers with poor drives at the first two holes but salvaged par both times before hitting his stride with three straight birdies from the fourth.
