Woods at 16-under in Dubai
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Tiger Woods is amused some people think he is actually in a slump. He suspects they have a lot to learn about golf.
Winless in five U.S. events this season, Woods reminded organizers of the Dubai Desert Classic why they paid him $2-million to play here.
He birdied the last two holes Friday for his second straight 8-under-par 64, taking a two-stroke lead on Thomas Bjorn.
"I don't think (Americans) actually follow the game globally as well as they should," he added. "Some of the writers, the public, don't get to see what goes on in the world of golf."
Jeev Milkha Singh shot 6-under 66 to go with 67, leaving him five strokes behind Woods.
TOSHIBA SENIOR CLASSIC: Jose Maria Canizares, Bob Gilder, Dana Quigley, Bruce Fleisher and Dave Stockton shot 6-under 65 to share the first-round lead at Newport Beach, Calif. Jim Colbert, Hale Irwin and Terry Mauney were two shots back.
"I've never had a more peculiar round than this one," Quigley said. "I missed the green 10 times and had 10 chances to make a bogey and I saved every one of them."
AUSTRALIAN LADIES MASTERS: Lynette Brooky led by four shots after two rounds at Gold Coast after 7-under 65. Kelly Robbins (9 under) was four shots back, followed by Karrie Webb (7 under).
