LOS ANGELES (AP) Bae Sang-moon is off to another great start at the Northern Trust Open. The next step is a better finish.

Bae played bogey-free on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus when the second round was suspended by darkness.

Baddeley, who won at Riviera three years ago, birdied his last four holes for a 65. Garrigus had a 67.

Dustin Johnson, who led after the opening round at 5-under 66, opened with two birdies but never got any closer. He had a 70 and joined Jim Furyk (68) among those three shots behind.

Bae was at 9-under 133. He was tied for the lead last year going into the weekend at Riviera but fell from contention.
