ORLANDO, Florida (REUTERS) - Bill Haas and Justin Rose shared the second-round lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Friday while Tiger Woods' bid for an eighth Bay Hill triumph took a hit when he bogeyed the final three holes.
Among the first onto the course, Haas set the early target with a bogey-free six-under 66 that no one could match, sending the American to the top the leaderboard where he was joined much later in the day by the British world number five.
Rose, who held a two-shot overnight lead, missed a three-foot par putt on 18 that would have given him the outright lead, but his bogey gave him a two-under 70 that put him level with Haas at nine-under 135 for the tournament.
Lurking one shot back is American John Huh (69) while compatriots Ken Duke (68), J.J. Henry (67) and Jimmy Walker (69) are three off the pace on 138.
