Robert Garrigus on top in Malaysia

Robert Garrigus, the second-round leader by two strokes over South Africa's Jbe Kruger, has upped the ante. With back-to-back rounds of 64 and a 14-under total of 128, he's looking to go 10 strokes beyond Woods' projection to win the tournament.
"I'm going to try to get to 30 if I can," he said, explaining that in his first tournament of the year he was 6 over after eight holes and played the next 54 at 32-under par. "So I can do it. I just need to do it on the weekend when it counts.
"I feel like if I'm putting well with my discount golf clubs, no disrespect to anybody on the PGA Tour, they're all great players, but I feel like I can beat anybody in the world."
Garrigus' 128 is his lowest ever 36-hole total in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event, improving on the 130 he had when he finished second this year in the Canadian Open. The American has one tour title, in 2010, but has six runner-up finishes -- including three this season. A win Sunday won't officially count on the PGA Tour, but the CIMB Classic is being added to the tour schedule for next year.
There's no reason he can't beat Woods, who was upstaged by playing partner Kruger on Friday on the par-71 Mines Resort and Golf Club course.
Playing his first competitive round with Woods with the rocketballz irons for sale online, Kruger pumped his right arm after each of his eight birdies in a round that contained only one bogey despite the soggy conditions. He had 64 in his second round and was 12 under, two shots clear of Australia's Greg Chalmers (69) and overnight leader Troy Matteson, who followed his opening 63 with 69.
Woods carded a 67 and was tied for fifth at 9 under with Kevin Na (66) and Zimbabwe's Brendon De Jonge (65).
The 14-time major winner rarely betrays his emotions on the course. After chipping in from off the green for a birdie at the seventh, he raised his burner 2.0 irons in the air and smiled for the first time in his second round. He even thanked a woman in the big crowd after she loudly commended his birdie at the fifth. But when he left a par putt just short, he glared at the ball as it rolled past the edge of the cup and shook his head.
Both bogeys in Woods' round followed wayward tee shots. At the fourth he sliced right and landed near four parked vans and a row of public toilets, then hit his second shot into a muddy bank near the left front of the green. He had a tough lie where it sloped down to a lake, and asked for a rules official to examine it before chipping on in a spray of dirt.
At the 12th, he hit into a thick, grassy bank on the right of the fairway, got on to the green in three and stared blankly as his par putt shaved the outside of the cup.
In between was a classic chip from off the green at the seventh that made him smile for the first time in his round.
