Spieth in lead, Woods 18th in World Challenge
The 21-year-old Texan Spieth made good use of the ideal post-rain conditions to get to five-under and then chose to to finish the 18th Saturday morning as darkness engulfed the stage, while Woods improved his scoring with a tw-under 70 to add to his poorly first round score of five-over 77.

Spieth, who last week won the Australian Open, had moved to a total of 11-under with one hole to play and was two clear of Henrik Stenson (67-68), while Patrick Reed set the course alight with a nine-under 63, after a first round 73. Reed was seven-under for the front nine with five birdies and an eagle, and admitted to thoughts of a sub-60 at one stage. But he finished at nine-under with a two-under back nine.

Starting from second last overnight at one-over 73 after 18 holes, he zoomed to tied third at eight-under after 36 holes.
