SAN DIEGO — Tiger Woods made it look easy on a dreary day at Torrey Pines and wound up in a place he hasn't been in five years.


He had the 36-hole lead by himself at one of his favorite PGA Tour stops.


Woods didn't miss a shot during a four-hole stretch around the turn on the North Course that included a 5-iron to 5 feet for eagle and a wedge that one-hopped off the pin to set up birdie. It carried him to a 7-under 65 on Friday and gave him a two-shot lead in the Farmers Insurance Open.


Woods was at 11-under 133 and had a two-shot lead over Billy Horschel, with six other players two shots behind. Already a favorite with seven wins as a pro at Torrey Pines, Woods had even more in his favor going into the weekend. He had a 74-0 edge in PGA Tour wins against the next seven players behind him.


Horschel, who had to go back to Q-school to get his card last year, had a 69 on the South Course.


Woods caught a break in the draw by playing the easier North — it's about 600 yards shorter — on a day of light rain, a late breeze and soft conditions.


Brad Fritsch, a rookie from Canada, had a 67 on the South Course to lead the group of six players at 8-under 136. The others were Casey Wittenberg, Steve Marino, Jimmy Walker, Josh Teater and Erik Compton.
