Rose misses cut but Johnson takes Saudi by storm
Dustin Johnson has a halfway three-shot lead in the Saudi International but world number one Justin Rose missed the cut.
American Johnson was in scintillating form and produced a course-record 61 - the lowest round of his career - to hold the lead at the halfway stage in Saudi Arabia.
South African Zander Lombard is tied for second with China's Li Haotong while Englishman Chris Paisley sits tied for sixth on six-under, with Ian Poulter one further back on five under.
Rose was disappointed with his two-over 72 as he missed the cut for only the second time in 36 tournaments.
The world number one admitted his mistakes proved costly as he looked to get back into contention.
He said: "The mistakes I made were due to trying to chase the cut and that doesn't happen if I had putted a bit better the first day.
"I actually played really nicely on day one. Today I felt not as good, but the mistakes were more because I was behind the eight-ball trying to get into the tournament."
