Tiger Woods entered the World Challenge as the betting favorite to win and after two rounds, he's in position to do just that. Woods vaulted to the top of the leaderboard on Friday with a round of 62, the best round of the day by five strokes. He'll now begin the third round on Saturday with a two-stroke lead.
Woods is 11-under for the tournament, two strokes ahead of Zach Johnson. Johnson followed up his opening-round 67 with a 68 on Friday and is 9-under. Johnson and Woods will play in the final group on Saturday and are scheduled to tee off at 1:58 p.m. ET.
Matt Kuchar is alone in third place at 8-under. He'll play with Graeme McDowell in the third round. McDowell shot a 67 on Friday and is 5-under for the tournament. Bubba Watson opened the tournament by shooting a pair of 70s and he'll play with Bill Haas in the third round.
