LA JOLLA -- Tiger Woods is chewing up the easier Torrey Pines North Course on Friday and has climbed to the top of the leaderboard at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Woods, who shot four-under-par 68 on the South Course in his opening round, shot four-under 32 on his front nine Friday and was eight-under overall as he made the turn.
Woods was tied at one point with Charles Howell III for the lead but Howell fell to seven-under when he made bogey five on the South Course's par-four 10th hole, giving Woods the solo lead.
Woods started play on the North Course's 10th tee Friday morning and he went birdie-eagle on the 17th and 18th holes. Woods also birdied the par-five 14th hole.
