ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tiger Woods and Justin Rose share the same swing coach. They nearly shared the lead at Bay Hill until a late stumble by Woods left him looking up at Rose.
Woods bogeyed his final three holes to shoot 70 and fall back to 5 under, four shots back of Rose and Bill Haas, who earlier in the day carded a 66.
Rose, like Woods, also shot 70 after a bogey on his final hole of the day.
John Huh is alone in third at 8 under.
"The good news is we've got 36 holes to go," said Woods who struggled at times with his putting, taking 28 in all for a second day in a row but also missing three from inside 10 feet. "I've sort of made my share of mistakes on the last few holes the last couple days, and I need to clean that up."
Rose, on the other hand, was nearly flawless all afternoon. He had gone 29 straight holes without a bogey, dating back to the opening round, before making one on the 14th, where he missed a 4-footer to save par.
Haas was bogey-free, making four birdies and an eagle to set the pace in the morning.
Rose and Haas have plenty of company, however, with 14 players within five shots of the lead, including Vijay Singh, who is 5 under, and Rickie Fowler, who shot 67 to get to 4 under and into a tie for 10th.
