The old Tiger Woods is on display at Torrey Pines, as he's darted to the top of the leaderboard with a 6-under thus far in the second round that has him three strokes up on his closest competitor.
Woods started the second day at the Farmers Insurance Open at 4-under: respectable, good for 20th place, but not amazing. And he didn't show any fire as he parred his first four holes. Then, he heated up. A birdie on the par-5 14th, then preposterously strong play around the turn, scoring three birdies and an eagle on his eighth-through-11th holes of the day.
Woods sits at 10-under on the leaderboard with seven holes to go on the day, three strokes ahead of a pack consisting of Charles Howell III, KJ Choi, Luke Guthrie, and Luke List.
Tiger won three tournaments last season, putting him close to the top of the PGA Tour Money list, but he hasn't won a major since 2008. Now, thanks to a five-hole hot streak, he's starting off the 2013 campaign strong. SB Nation's Brendan Porath predicted Woods would make a run after his first round of play, and sure enough, he's already on top of the leaderboard.
