Baird keeps lead in Buick Classic

HARRISON, N.Y., June 20 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods showed signs of his normal self Friday, then made three bogeys on the back nine that left him four shots behind Briny Baird at the Buick Classic.

Rainy conditions put the rest of the tournament in jeopardy and PGA Tour officials will start the third round early Saturday in hopes of getting the best of the weather.

Woods, considered by some to be in a "slump," got within two strokes of the lead with four birdies over his first nine holes Friday. But he then fell back and settled for a 2-under 69.

"I just didn't keep it going," Woods said.

Baird followed a career-best 63 with a wild 69 that left him at 10-under 132, a stroke better than Retief Goosen. Skip Kendall was another stroke back, one ahead of veteran Joey Sindelar.
