PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. -- Fredrik Jacobson and John Rollins are among the players making a move on Friday afternoon.
Jacobson tied for seventh last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which was essentially his first four days of competition since October as he recovered from a back injury. He just made a 12-footer for his fifth birdie of the day at the 10th hole and is tied for second at 8 under for the tournament.
Rollins started on the back nine and got things rolling with a 14-footer for eagle at the 11th hole. He drained a bomb from 47 feet at No. 12, then answered his only bogey of the day with consecutive birdies at Nos. 16 and 17 to turn in 32. Birdies at the first and fifth holes have landed him in a tie with Jacobson, as well.
Meanwhile, Ryan Moore has made five birdies in his first 11 holes to move to 6 under for the tournament. Four of the players at 5 under are currently on the course -- Lee Westwood, Jimmy Walker, rookies David Lynn and James Hahn and overnight leader Matt Kuchar, who is 2 over through 11 holes.
Defending champion Bill Haas has made three birdies and is 4 under for the tournament with six holes remaining. His playing partners Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley are 2 under and 1 under, respectively.
The cut line right now is 1 over with 75 players at that number or better.
