Pebble Beach: Charlie Wi leads by 3: Tiger Woods six behind

February 10, 2012 |  4:25 pm

Charlie Wi, who played college golf at the University of California, didn't mind the suddenly cool and rainy weather that arrived at Pebble Beach during Friday's second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Wi, born in Seoul but now a Californian, has a three-shot lead over two-time tournament winner Dustin Johnson after two rounds. Wi, who turned 40 last month, has never won a PGA Tour event. He is 12-under 130 after the first two rounds and shot a 69 Friday at the Pebble Beach course.

Tiger Woods, playing his first PGA Tour event of the year, is six shots behind Wi and tied for 16th after his two-under 68 Friday on the Monterery Peninsula course. Phil Mickelson made a move Friday, shooting a five-under 65 at Monterey Peninsula and is seven under for the tournament and tied for eighth.

Woods mentioned that he felt pain in his right wrist when his club hit the ground hard on the eighth hole.

"It hurt like (heck) when I did it," Woods said. He said the pain disappeared quickly. "Hurt just that one shot. Once I popped it back in, it was good. It was just a joint. No big deal. The problem was, I was in a divot. So I was in a divot on an uphill slope, and it was a tough combo."
