KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) Robert Garrigus shot a 7-under-par 64 to take a two-stroke lead ahead of Jbe' Kruger, who upstaged Tiger Woods in their second-round pairing at the CIMB Classic on Friday.

Garrigus was at 14-under total 128 after two rounds, following his only bogey of the round on the 18th hole.

Kruger, playing his first competitive round with Woods, pumped his right arm after each of his eight birdies in a round that also had only one bogey amid the soggy conditions at the Mines Resort and Golf Club. He had a 64 and was, two shots clear of Australia's Greg Chalmers (69) and overnight leader Troy Matteson, who followed his opening 63 with 69.

Woods carded a 67 and was tied for fifth at 9 under with Kevin Na (66) and Zimbabwe's Brendon De Jonge (65).
