Australian Open 2011: Tiger Woods Holds Lead After Two Rounds

Halfway across the world, Tiger Woods is quietly putting together a solid tournament for the first time in what seems like forever. Woods carded back-to-back rounds in the 60s to open the 2011 Australian Open and will enter the third round atop the leaderboard at 9-under. Woods shot a 67 in his second round, following up a first-round 68 to take a one-shot lead.

Woods is trailed by Peter O'Malley, who put together a solid round to get to 8-under for the tournament. O'Malley shot a 6-under 66 in his second round at the Australian Open and finds himself in prime-position headed into the final two rounds. Jason Day is two shots off the pace at 7-under for the tournament.

Alone in fourth place is Bubba Watson, who followed a 4-under first round with a 2-under second. Watson trails by three strokes heading into the third round. First round leader Jarrod Lyle fell back in the second round, carding a 2-over 74 to slide to 5-under for the tournament, four shots off the pace.
