Ten years after Robert Allenby won an extension of six men at Riviera, he was part of a nine-way tie to his head Thursday at the Northern Trust Open.
Allenby kept simple, with a glorious day in Sunset Boulevard, with a 4-under 67 that turned out to result in sufficient proportion of the former Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin faltered late.
It 'was the highest score in a round door to the Riviera for 15 years.
Also on top of the league when the game was suspended darkness was John Senden, Martin Laird, Spencer Levin, Aaron Baddeley, Ben Martin, Bill Haas, Carl Pettersson and JB Holmes.
Peter Tomasulo could join them if he made a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole, when he resumed his round Friday morning. As it is, PGA Tour said nine players tied for the lead were later after one round since the beginning of record keeping in 1970.
