ATLANTA, Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods
scorched the course with a record-setting effort Friday and led by three strokes after two rounds of the Tour Championship at Atlanta.
Woods completed his opening round Friday with a 64, then parred his first three holes, birdied the next five and recorded an eagle.
The 7-under on the front nine gave him the lead, and Woods ended up with a 7-under 63 for the second round, completing 36 holes at 13-under par 127.
Woods' 127 broke the old 36-hole tournament record of 130 set by Bart Bryant and Retief Goosen in 2005.
Woody Austin was alone in second at 10-under after consecutive 65s.
