South Korea's Kim Do-hoon took charge of the Volvo China Open in the second round on Friday with a one stroke lead. Kim carded a steady round of 69 for an 11-under 133 total going into the weekend. He was ahead of a trio of players tied for the second place, including Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee. The cut was applied at even-par and that meant Jyoti Randhawa was the lone Indian to make the grade.
Woods back on course in two weeks
Tiger Woods, who finished fourth at the Masters in his first tournament in five months, will tee it up again in a fortnight at the Quail Hollow Championship.
Woods committed to the tournament, which runs from April 29 to May 2.
Woods made a highly anticipated return to competition last week at the Masters, ending five months of self-imposed seclusion that followed a withering sex scandal.
He has played Quail Hollow - formerly known as the Wachovia Championship - four times since it was introduced to the PGA Tour in 2003.
He won in 2007 and was fourth last year.
The tournament will be his first since the scandal where tickets are sold to the general public, unlike the tightly controlled conditions at Augusta National. Quail Hollow tournament director Kym Hougham said organizers had been preparing for Woods's possible participation for some time and had security plans in place.
Anish, Piyush win
Anish Ahluwalia carded a 75 to emerge victorious in Category A (15-17 years) of the 21st Albatross tournament at the Golden Greens Golf Resort on Friday. In other categories, Tarak Swamy won in Category B (13-14 years) with a 76, Piyush Sangwan in Category C (11-12 years) with a 76 while Manav Bais (85) and Rishab Goyal came on top in Categories D and E respectively.
