Tiger Dominating Thru 36 Holes at the Chevron World Challenge

Tiger Woods followed up his impressive opening round with a 66 on Friday to take a four shot lead over Graeme McDowell at the Chevron World Challenge.

Looking as dominant as ever, Tiger has been bombing it off the tee and finding the fairway as he’s taken advantage the relatively short track at Sherwood Country Club.  This fine play has him at(-13) well clear of the field.

The way he’s playing this week it seems the former world #1 has recaptured the form, at least for this tournament, that propelled him to 14 major championships.

If Tiger doesn’t fall apart, and there’s no good reason he would, it’ll be one formidable task to beat him, while the bookmakers have serious confidence in the world’s most talented player putting him at (1-6)

McDowell, meanwhile, has had two solid rounds in what seems to be a vain attempt to keep pace with Tiger.  He shot 69 in round two and is now at (-9).

Realistically, McDowell is going to have to stop giving shots away if he’s going to have any chance of catching Woods.

The 2010 US Open champ could, conceivably, be right on Tiger’s heels if it wasn’t for some sloppy play in round two.  McDowell couldn’t stay out of trouble on Friday making 3 bogies and a double bogie on Friday.

Regardless, his career season and the fact he’s the closest to Tiger have him second on the betting board at (7-1).

The books third choice is Rory McIlroy who stands one back of McDowell and four back of Woods at (-8).

After a beautiful opening 66, McIlroy faltered a bit in round two as he could only muster a 70 on the tame Sherwood track.  McDowell’s countryman stumbled to the finish as he dropped three shots in his final 3 holes, including a painful double bogie on 18.

He’ll tee off round three at (10-1), but realistically these odds could be a lot higher if Tiger continues to play with clinical precision.

The third Brit within in striking distance of Woods is Luke Donald who’s the books fourth pick at (14-1).  He’s currently tied with McIlroy at (-8) and will most likely have to play lights out golf to get close to the leader, Tiger Woods.
