American Robert Garrigus shot a 7-under-par 64 Friday to take two-stroke lead over South African Jbe' Kruger, who got the better of Tiger Woods in their second-round pairing at the CIMB Classic on Friday. Garrigus started the day in second spot at 7-under and got as low as 15-under before leaving his par putt just short on the 18th hole for his only bogey of the round and a two-round total of 14-under 128. Kruger, playing his first competitive round with Woods, pumped his right arm after each of his eight birdies in a round that contained only one bogey despite the soggy conditions at the par-71 Mines Resort and Golf Club course. Woods carded a 67 and was tied for fifth at 9-under.
