Tiger Woods didn't like the way he warmed up on the range. What he produced on the golf course Friday left him with no complaints.
Woods had a birdie putt on every hole and made 10 of them for a 10-under 62, tying his course record at Sherwood Country Club and giving the tournament host a 2-shot lead over Zach Johnson going into the weekend at the World Challenge. "It was good today," Woods said with a broad smile.
"It was a clinic," said Graeme McDowell, the defending champion who played alongside Woods in the second round and had a 67.
Woods was at 11-under 133 and will be paired in the last group Saturday with Johnson, who missed a few good birdie chances on the back nine but still managed a 68. Johnson is a two-time runner-up at the World Challenge, both times to Woods.
