Justin Rose made his birdies mean something by keeping bogeys off his card for a 6-under 65 and a 1-shot lead Friday in the Dell Technologies Championship.

Rose was rarely out of position on a breezy day at the TPC Boston that kept scores higher than usual. He putted for birdie on all but two holes and finished with three birdies over his last four holes to lead Russell Knox and Abraham Ancer.

Tiger Woods had to rally to salvage a 72.

Rose missed the cut in the FedEx Cup playoffs opener, and then opted out of the pro-am so he could spend six days at home in the Bahamas. He’s in position where a missed cut doesn’t hurt him at No. 6 in the standings.

Knox and Ancer have far more at stake. They’re simply trying to get to the next FedEx Cup event and keep their seasons going.

Ryan Armour of Silver Lake is tied for 42nd with an even-par 71.

LPGA Tour

Georgia Hall shot a 9-under 63 to take a 3-stroke lead in the Cambia Portland Classic in Oregon and break the tournament 36-hole record.

The Women’s British Open winner four weeks ago for her first LPGA Tour title, the 22-year-old Englishwoman made five straight birdies in the middle of the back nine. She missed a chance to match the course record of 62 when her long birdie try went to the right on the par-4 18th.

Hall had a 15-under 129 total. She had four birdies on the front nine, three in a row on Nos. 5-7, and began the birdie streak on the par-5 12th at tree-lined Columbia Edgewater.

PGA Tour Champions

Miguel Angel Jimenez and Kirk Triplett shot 6-under 64 to share the first-round lead in the PGA Tour Champions’ Shaw Charity Classic in Calgary, Alberta.

Second last year behind Scott McCarron, Jimenez birdied five of the first six holes and eagled the par-5 11th at Canyon Meadows. Triplett dropped into the tie with a bogey on the par-4 17th.

European Tour

Thorbjorn Olesen was in a strong position to secure the final qualifying place in Europe’s Ryder Cup team despite making the cut only on the number at the Made In Denmark event.

Only a victory for Matthew Fitzpatrick or Eddie Pepperell can deny Olesen the last automatic spot in the Europe team via the world points list, but the English players were far off the lead after the second round at Silkeborg Ry Golf Club.

Pepperell shot a 3-under 69 and was 5 under overall, 8 strokes behind leader Christiaan Bezuidenhout of South Africa. Fitzpatrick shot 68 and was a stroke further back.

Web.com Tour

Kramer Hickok shot a 3-under 67 to maintain a 1-stroke lead in the DAP Championship in Beechwood, the second of four Web.com Tour Finals events that will determine 25 PGA Tour cards.

One of 25 players who have already earned PGA Tour cards through the Web.com Tour’s regular-season money list, Hickok birdied the final two holes at Canterbury Golf Club to reach 10-under 130.
