LOS ANGELES (AP) Justin Thomas nearly holed a 9-iron for birdie, and then made par by hitting a flop shot from the putting surface over the bunker on the par-3 sixth at Riviera, to cap off a 6-under 65 and share the lead with Adam Scott at the rain-delayed Genesis Open.

Scott, playing one group behind Thomas, also had one birdie in the six holes he played Saturday morning for a 65.

They were at 11-under 131, one shot ahead of J.B. Holmes (69) with the half of the 144-man field just starting the second round.
