Time off the course helps Woods; leads the Australian Open

Tiger Woods kept saying that all he needed to do to resurrect his golf game was to take time off to work on every facet, putting, driving, chipping and distance.

Well, it must have worked.

Woods left the golf course on Friday seeing his name atop the leaderboard in the Australian Open.

Looking like the Tiger of old, he put together his best back-to-back rounds of the year with a 5-under-par 67 that put him ahead of the pack with a one-shot lead going into the weekend at The Lakes.

Woods is at 9-under-par 135, one shot ahead of an old nemesis, Peter O’Malley. A member of The Lakes, O’Malley finished the day with a 66, and is best remembered by golf fans for beating Woods in the opening round of the Match Play Championship at La Costa in 2002.

This is the first time Woods has led a tournament since the third round of the Chevron World Challenge in 2010, and the first time against a full field since his last victory two years ago in the Australian Masters tournament. Also, Woods did tie for the lead at The Barclays last year after the first round.
