Farmers Insurance Open, A Bright Eyed Tiger Leads. January 25 2013

A bright-eyed Tiger Woods leapt into the lead at the Farmers Insurance Open, a tournament he has won six times before, and no one would bet against him doing it again after his second round of -7 under par 65 gives him a two shot lead over the chasing field. Hi-res-160068610_crop_exact Tiger Woods / Jeff Gross / Getty Images Tiger cruised around the easier North Course, and said leading the tournament made him feel good; "I feel good right now, I'm leading the tournament. Drive the ball well here and you're going to probably have four iron shots into the par fives.You sprinkle that in with probably four or five wedge shots in there, a round of  -6 or -7 under par is definitely conceivable. I've had beautiful practice sessions at home, if I can do it there, I can do it out here. Even though last week I played only two days, I felt like I hit the ball well enough to shoot a better score than I did. I had a couple of days to work on it, and I came out here and felt pretty good about it." In second place alone is Billy Horschel, at -9 under par for the tournament, he shot a round of 69 on the more difficult South Course. Billy said he is looking forward to the pairing with Tiger for the third round; " It's a good day and I'm excited about tomorrow,  I get to play with Tiger. I found out when I tapped in for par, I realized he was leading and I was in second place. So yeah, looking forward to that." In a packed leaderboard, Brad Fritsch, a rookie from Canada, had a 67 on the South Course to lead the group of six players at -8 under par. The others are Casey Wittenberg, Steve Marino, Jimmy Walker, Josh Teater and Erik Compton, who Tiger Woods referred to as being "remarkable" for being a two-time heart transplant recipient and being on the PGA TourBrandt Snedeker and K.J. Choi both struggled today, and have slipped back down the leaderboard.
