Doral: American Bubba Watson charged into a one-shot lead in Fridays second round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship with a spectacular 10-under-par 62 that got off to a roaring start.
Tiger Woods started the day six shots back of overnight leaders Adam Scott and Jason Dufner and, despite a bogey-free 67, was seven strokes off the lead.
World No. 1 Rory McIlroy was 10 strokes behind Watson after a three-under 69, failing to make the most of a solid eagle-birdie start.
Watson, who started on the 10th hole, quickly tamed the TPC Blue Monster course with birdies on five of his opening seven holes before grabbing the outright lead with an eagle on the par-five eighth.
This golf course doesnt really suit me, Watson told reporters. My eye lines, its tough for me ... but Ive been hitting the ball really well and that carried over and I made some putts today.
Australian Scott (68) was two shots back of the lead after closing with four birdies on his last six holes.
Woods was left disappointed despite his 67. This is the highest score I could have shot today for sure, said Woods. It could have been pretty low.
