Tiger Woods is making a charge on Friday in the second round of the 2011 Chevron World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California. At one point early Friday Woods tied for the lead, but after a three-under 33 on the front nine he stands at six under par for the tournament, one shot behind first-round leader K.J. Choi through nine holes on Friday.
Woods also shot a 33 on the front nine on Thursday in the first round, then shot an even-par 36 on the home stretch.
Woods entered the day tied for second place with Steve Stricker at three under par, three shots behind Choi. By the third hole, Woods caught Choi, thanks in part to an eagle on the par-five second hole. The eagle got the crowd buzzing, and caused Associated Press golf reporter Doug Ferguson to tweet this:
When tiger pumps his fist in the 2nd fairway on a Friday, it's a special shot. 5-iron from side hill lie to 4 ft for eagle.
On the sixth hole, Woods bogied while Choi birdied to regain his three-shot lead. Woods got one back with a birdie on the par-three eighth. Woods pulled to within one when Choi bogied the ninth hole.
Zach Johnson has the low round of the day so far, at six under par through 14 holes. He is currently at five under for the tournament, in third place. Matt Kuchar is at four under on the day through 12 holes, and four under for the tournament as well, currently in fourth place.
