After carding a 3-under 69 to open the Chevron World Challenge on Thursday, Tiger Woods turned it on in the second round, surging to the top of the leaderboard after two days. Woods finished his second round at 5-under for the day and 8-under for the tournament, taking a three-shot lead into the weekend. After struggling for much of the year, Woods finds himself in perfect position to win his first event of the year in the last time he takes the course.
Woods is being chased by K.J. Choi and Matt Kuchar, who sit in a tie for second at 5-under. Choi faltered after a strong first round, falling back on the leaderboard as a result. Kuchar, on the other hand, turned in a 5-under round, vaulting into the tie for second.
