Woods, preparing for the Presidents Cup next week at Royal Melbourne, birdied the par-5 eighth and made the turn in 1-under 34. He birdied Nos. 10 and 11 to pull within four strokes leader Jarrod Lyle.
Woods‘ putt from 10 feet curled around the first hole, and his 18-footer on the fourth did the same thing. On the fifth, his ball did a complete horseshoe, and Woods, trying to end a two-year victory drought, looked exasperated as he tapped in for par.
Lyle shot a 7-under 65 in calmer morning conditions.
