  • Woodland takes lead into final round

LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Gary Woodland carded a 2-under 70 Saturday at Torrey Pines to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Marc Leishman and Jordan Spieth are tied for second.

Tiger Woods, on the other hand, is headed home after missing the secondary cut following a 79 that dropped him into a tie for 80th. Because more than 78 players made the 36-hole cut, the field was trimmed again to the top 70 and ties after the third round.

It is the first time Woods, who has won this tournament seven times and was the defending champion, has missed a secondary cut in his career. His 79 was also his highest score in the event and ties for his third-highest in his career on the PGA TOUR.

Woods wasn't the only one to struggle. Only five players broke 70 on the difficult South Course.

Spieth, who led overnight, wasn't one of them. He played his first five holes in 4 over before steadying himself and making three birdies and just two bogeys the rest of the way.

Leishman, meanwhile, had just one bogey to go with one birdie on his day. The Aussie will play in Sunday's final pairing with Woodland and Spieth.
