The 2nd round in the Dubai Desert Classic is completed, even though it is being aired right now on Golf Channel. Tiger Woods improved his position considerably by shooting a 66 today with six birdies and no bogeys. TW has moved up to a tie for 5th, and has basically won the battle of the big three by shooting a lower score over the first two days than his pairing partners Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer. Westwood’s tweets are silent right now.
Rory McIlroy is still on top after shooting 68 on day two. He sits at -11.
2nd place has two players at -10, South African Thomas Aiken and surprisingly Sergio Garcia. Has Sergio gotten it together now?
