Tiger Woods shares Valspar Championship lead with round two still in progress

From BBC - March 9, 2018

Tiger Woods produced a three-under-par 68 to put himself in contention for a first PGA Tour win since 2013 at the Valspar Championship.

The 42-year-old shares the lead on four under after his second round, with some of his challengers still playing.

Woods made a birdie on his third and fourth holes at the Florida course, before adding two more after the turn.

He gave a trademark fist pump after saving par from 12 feet on his 16th hole but made a bogey on his last.

The 14-time major winner shares the lead with England's Paul Casey and American Brandt Snedeker, who have also completed their second rounds.

Canada's Corey Conners - who led after round one - is also on four under but has yet to start his second round, while Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy began his second round at 17:35 GMT and at three over, is likely to need to shoot under par to make the cut.
