(Newser) – Geoff Ogilvy shot a bogey-free round of 67 today to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the World Golf Championship at Doral, writes AP. The bad news for him is the next closest competitor is Tiger Woods (-11), who soared into second place by posting birdies on the last two holes for a 66 on the day.

And that's fine with Ogilvy, who saved par four times from the bunker. "How can you not enjoy playing with the guy who's on his way to being the best golfer of all time?" Ogilvy said. "It's a thrill." Adam Scott, one of Ogilvy's  best friends, was third and will join Ogilvy and Woods in the final group, despite bogeying 17 and 18.
