6:47 am on 7 November 2009

Golf's world number one Tiger Woods has moved into a share of the halfway lead at the $10 million HSBC Champions tournament in China..

Woods gathered five birdies in the final 10 holes to shoot a second consecutive five-under-par 67 on another ideal day for low scoring in Shanghai.

He joined first round pacesetter Nick Watney (70) at 10-under 134, one stroke ahead of fellow Americans Phil Mickelson and Ryan Moore and Spaniard Alvaro Quiros.
