Kirk leads; Tiger, others moving up

The second round is in full swing with everyone on the golf course at Torrey Pines, where Chris Kirk has moved to the top of the leaderboard at 10 under after playing his first five holes on the South Course in 4 under.

Kirk isn’t the only player going low, though. Anthony Kim, who is tied for second with Rickie Fowler at 8 under, is also 4 under through his first five holes. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods, who is in the group with Kim and Rocco Mediate, is 3 under on his round. That has Woods in a tie for eighth at the moment with Phil Mickelson and overnight leader Sunghoon Kang, who is struggling at 2 over through five holes.

Woods’ ball-striking has been solid so far -- he missed just one green in regulation through his first five holes and two of his three birdies came from inside 8 feet ( click here to follow Woods live with Shot Tracker).

Also playing well is Bubba Watson, who is over on the North Course, where he’s 7 under through his first 11 holes and 7 under for the week. Watson began his round on the back nine and at one point made four straight birdies.
