KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Five strokes off the lead after two rounds, Tiger Woods thinks the CIMB Classic course “can be had” and expects a score of better than 20-under-par to win it.
Robert Garrigus, the second-round leader by two strokes over Jbe Kruger, upped the ante. At 14-under 128, he's looking to go 10 strokes beyond Woods' projection.
“I'm going to try to get to 30 if I can,” he said.
Garrigus' 128 is his lowest 36-hole total on the U.S. tour, improving on the 130 he had when he finished second at this year's Canadian Open. He has one tour title, in 2010, but has six runner-up finishes including three this season. A win here won't officially count on the PGA Tour, but the CIMB Classic is being added to the schedule next year.
In Yang Mei, Taiwan, Suzann Pettersen shot 7-under 65 to share the second-round lead with Inbee Park at the LPGA Taiwan Championship.
In San Antonio, Mark Calcavecchia shot 5-under 67 to take a two-stroke lead over Kenny Perry in the suspended first round of the AT&T Championship.

In Shanghai, Peter Hanson shot 8-under 64 to take a two-stroke lead on Rory McIlroy after the second round of the BMW Masters.
