The second round of the World Challenge is in the books, and Graeme McDowell has a three-stroke lead heading into the weekend after firing a 6-under 66 on Friday at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Ca.

McDowell leads three golfers tied for second at 6-under, including Jim Furyk, Bo Van Pelt and Keegan Bradley. Van Pelt had the best round of the three, shooting a 4-under 68 on Friday.

Tiger Woods is lurking just out of contention after a second round 3-under 69, to give him sole possession of fifth place at 5-under.

Rickie Fowler sits tied for sixth place with Nick Watney after rebounding from an opening round 73 by shooting a 5-under 67. Watney struggled in the second round with a 1-over 73 that caused him to slip out of the top spot on the leaderboard.

Jason Dufner rallied behind a second round 68 to jump up three spot on the leaderboard to eighth place.
