ORLANDO - For the first time in 30 months Tiger Woods holds a lead entering the weekend at a PGA event.
Woods had a seven under par 65 Friday to go 10 under for the first two rounds at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The last time Woods led entering the third round was at the Tour Championships in September 2009.
Madison golfer Skip Kendall had a one over par round to slip back to a tie for 35th. He is 10 shots back. Mark Wilson followed a terrible first round with a pretty good second, shooting a two under par Friday to just make the cut. He’s tied for 61st at three over par at Bay Hill.
The first round of the Champions Tour Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic was stopped by darkness with most of the competitors still on the course. Tom Pernice Junior holds a one-stroke lead at seven under par, but he only completed a dozen holes Friday. Rhinelander native Dan Forsman is tied for 65th at two over par through 14 hours.
