Woods atop the leaderboard at Torrey Pines

SAN DIEGO (AP) Tiger Woods made it look easy in the rain Friday on the North Course at Torrey Pines and finished his day atop the leaderboard in the Farmers Insurance Open.

Woods put himself into great position going into the weekend with a 7-under 65. He finished his second round with the lead, though several players were still on the soggy courses. One of them was Ross Fisher of England, who was two shots out of the lead with five holes remaining on the South Course.

For the second straight day, Woods played a five-hole stretch in 5-under par. This time, he finished strongly. After his lone bogey on the par-4 eighth hole, he hit 5-wood onto the ninth green for a two-putt birdie to reach 11-under 133.
