This week: Northern Trust Open, Thursday through Sunday, Riviera Country Club, Pacific Palisades, Calif.

Moore’s second-round score: 4-under-par 67.

Kelly’s second-round score: 3-over 74.

Position: Moore (5-under 137) is tied for ninth, four strokes behind co-leaders Sang-Moon Bae and Fredrik Jacobson (9-under 133). Kelly (10-over 152) missed the cut by nine strokes.

Recap: Except for one hole, Moore was pretty much flawless on this demanding layout. He birdied the three par-5 holes, and was 5-under on his round through 11 holes when his approach shot went over the green. His chip shot 32 inches from the hole, and that is what he faced to save par. He ended up three-putting for a double bogey. He did rebound by rolling in a 16-footer at No. 7 for his final birdie. … Kelly birdied the first hole Friday, then made four bogeys in a six-hole stretch that carried into the early part of his back nine.

Moore’s tee time Saturday: 9:29 a.m. PST off the first tee.

Next for Kelly: Tampa Bay Championship starting March 14 at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course, Palm Harbor, Fla.
