Leaderboard update: Lefty on top

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. --  J.B. Holmes has had a roller-coaster ride on his second nine at Riviera on Thursday.

He was cruising along at 5 under before he made consecutive bogeys at Nos. 4 and 5. Holmes bounced back well, though, tapping in from 19 inches at the sixth hole and making another birdie from 17 feet at the next to get back into a tie with Phil Mickelson.

Holmes gave both those shots back, though, when he made double bogey at No. 8. He found the left rough off the tee and was short of the green in two, then chipped on a three-putted from 58 feet.

So Mickelson, who made three birdies in his first four holes after he made the turn, is now alone in first at 4 under. He has just bogeyed the par-3 16th, putting his tee shot just over the green and eventually missing a 7-footer to save par.
