THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Tiger Woods had a birdie putt on every hole and made 10 of them Friday to tie his own course record at Sherwood and take a three-shot lead in the World Challenge.

Woods had a 10-under 62, matching the score he shot in the second round at Sherwood six years ago. That gave him a two-shot lead over Zach Johnson, who birdied the last hole for a 68. Matt Kuchar also had a 68 and was another shot behind.

Graeme McDowell played with Woods and called it a clinic. Woods missed only one fairway and hit every green. Woods said it was similar to the 61 he had at Firestone this year when he won the Bridgestone Invitational by seven shots.

Woods already is a five-time winner at Sherwood.
