PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif., Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Fredrik Jacobson and Sang-Moon Bae both shot 6-under 65 Friday and held a share of the second-round lead at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera.

The sun set at Pacific Palisades with Bae and Jacobson both at 9-under 133, one shot ahead of John Merrick and John Rollins.

Bae held the lead by himself briefly but was cooled off by a pair of bogeys on the back nine. Jacobson also held the solo lead for a bit but bogeyed 15 to fall back into a tie with Bae.

Rollins carded a 65 Friday and Merrick a 66, the same score as World No. 3 Like Donald, who grabbed fifth place at 7-under.

Matt Kuchar, who led Thursday, wound up ninth place after stumbling with two double bogeys and 73 for the round.

Phil Mickelson shot 67 and was tied for 13th at 4-under.
