GLF--GENESIS OPEN

LOS ANGELES _ Texas Jordan Spieth added two more birdies to complete a 7-under 64 for an early lead at the Genesis Open on a short day of work.

Play was delayed for seven hours on Thursday because of rain. Tiger Woods didn’t tee off until later Friday morning and faced a long day. He was 2 over through seven holes, and faced another 18 holes in the afternoon. By Doug Ferguson. SENT: 150 words, with photos. Will be updated.
