Abu Dhabi Golf

Abu Dhabi Golf, Thorbjorn Olesen holds a one-shot lead after the second round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, with Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy two strokes behind.

Olesen, of Denmark, shot a 5-under-par 65 today and is 7- under for the tournament at Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Italy’s Matteo Manassero, who had the day’s low score of 65, and England’s Gareth Maybin, with a 70, are 6-under at the midway point.

McIlroy, who shared the first-round lead with Sweden’s Robert Karlsson, had a 72 to drop to 5-under. The U.S. Open champion from Northern Ireland was 3-over in his round after three holes, then took a two-stroke penalty on the ninth hole for brushing away sand that wasn’t on the putting surface.

“Just wasn’t thinking,” McIlroy, No. 3 in the Official World Golf Ranking, told reporters. “Turned a routine 4 into a 6 there and just sort of undone all the great work to get back to even par.”

Woods, McIlroy’s playing partner, had five birdies and two bogeys in a round of 69. He had a chance to tie Olesen after birdies on the 11th, 12th and 15th holes, but bogeyed No. 16 where he drove into the rough.
