LOS ANGELES — A move down the California coast hasn't changed a thing for Fredrik Jacobson.

One week after a solid finish at Pebble Beach, Jacobson birdied the two toughest holes at Riviera on Friday on his way to a 6-under 65 and a share of the lead with Sang-Moon Bae going into the weekend at the Northern Trust Open.

Jacobson and Bae were at 9-under 133, one shot ahead of John Merrick (66) and John Rollins (65).

Still very much in the picture was Luke Donald, who chipped in twice for birdie and had a 66. That left him two shots out of the lead in his first tournament in two months. Phil Mickelson had a 67 that included a double bogey on the 10th hole and was five shots out of the lead.

Champions Tour

Bernhard Langer holed out from the fairway for an eagle on the par-4 10th and finished with a 10-under 62 to take a three-stroke in the Champions Tour's ACE Group Classic.

Langer hit a 9-iron from 141 yards that went right in the cup on the 10th.

Langer had three birdies on the front nine, then played the back nine in 7-under 29 with the eagle and five birdies — including four in a row on Nos. 13-16.

European Tour

Brazil's Adilson Da Silva opened a three-stroke lead in the Africa Open, completing a 10-under 62 in the wind-delayed first round and shooting a 68 in the second.

Da Silva had a 14-under 130 total on the East London course in the event sanctioned by the European and South Africans tours.

LPGA Tour

Mariajo Uribe shot a 6-under 67 to overtake Jiyai Shin and overnight leader Lydia Ko, claiming a one-stroke lead after the second round of the LPGA Tour's season-opening Women's Australian Open.
