Tiger Woods birdied three of the first four holes Friday in the chilly second round of his charity tournament in Thousand Oaks. But despite reaching four-under par for the event, Woods remained three shots behind first-round leader Zach Johnson, who stood at seven under after birdies on the first two holes at the par-72 Sherwood Country Club. Matt Kuchar also birdied the first two holes to reach six under par and trail Johnson by one stroke in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.

Tiger Woods and the other 17 players in Woods' charity tournament had to wait an extra hour to tee off Friday because of morning frost at Sherwood Country Club. Woods said he also "didn't warm up well" when he was practicing on the driving range. "I was not hitting it very good. " But that all changed on the course, where Woods got hot in a hurry and showed why he's the world's top-ranked player and a five-time winner of his event. Woods fired a 10-under-par 62, tying his tournament record, to surge into the second-round lead of the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.

In thirty years, when Tiger Woods is no longer able to hit it 320 and no longer has to answer questions about winning or not winning majors, he might have a moment of clarity on what golf has given him. The money will rate high, of course. The fame - sometimes disintegrating into notoriety - not so high. But not lost on him will be the doors the game opened. Especially the one that led into Nelson Mandela's home 15 years ago. Woods has been asked over the years about that meeting, whenever there was a thread of a connection.

  Facing an uphill, 25-foot putt for birdie on the 14th hole at Sherwood Country Club, Zach Johnson struck the ball hard, "too hard," he said. No matter. The ball went into the cup instead of sailing by, helping Johnson to a five-under-par 67 and the first-round lead Thursday in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. Matt Kuchar finished one shot behind Johnson, and Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson were three shots behind with two-under 70s in the tournament that benefits Tiger Woods' charities.

Defending winner Graeme McDowell and Bubba Watson were among several players tied for the early lead in Thursday's first round of the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge in Thousand Oaks. McDowell was one under par through 10 holes at the par-72 Sherwood Country Club. Also one under were Watson, Zach Johnson, Hunter Mahan, Bill Haas, Steve Stricker, Matt Kuchar, Jason Dufner and Keegan Bradley. The tournament benefits the charities of Tiger Woods, and Woods -- a five-time winner of the event -- was one shot behind the leaders at even par. McDowell, a Northern Ireland native who also won the tournament in 2010, birdied the first two holes along with the par-five fifth hole.

Zach Johnson shot a five-under-par 67 to seize the first-round lead Thursday in Tiger Woods' charity golf tournament at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. Matt Kuchar finished one shot behind Johnson in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson were three shots back after shooting two-under 70s. Woods -- a five-time winner of the event -- also looked poised to shoot 70 when he came to the 18th green with a three-foot putt for birdie. But he missed the putt and settled for a one-under 71. Johnson, who finished second in the World Challenge in 2007 and 2011, had seven birdies and two bogeys in Thursday's round.

Tiger Woods seldom says much on Twitter despite having 3.7 million followers and being nudged by his girlfriend, Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, to tweet more often. "As far as her convincing me to tweet more, yes, she certainly has hinted that," Woods said Wednesday at Sherwood Country Club, site of his charity golf tournament that starts Thursday. Vonn, 29, tweets more frequently and has about 253,790 followers. "But I grew up in a different era and it's a little bit different for me," said Woods, 37. "I'm still a little bit old school.
