Tiger Woods returned to form to hit a five-under-par 67 and establish the lead in the Australian Open.
The former world number one carded seven birdies and two bogeys to move to nine under in total on day two.
“It feels good to actually be there playing properly instead of slashing the ball all over the place,” said Woods, who leads Australia’s Peter O’Malley by one shot.
“I felt like I really didn’t miss a shot.”
Woods, who started the day three shots behind overnight leader Jarrod Lyle, will have to maintain his form if he is to stay ahead of the chasing pack.
Local veteran O’Malley, 46, is one shot behind after carding a six-under-par 66, the lowest score of the day, with Australia’s world number seven Jason Day a further shot back in third on seven under after a 68.
