Ogilvy and Scott Sandwich Tiger for the WGC-CA Championship Lead.

Geoff Ogilvy and Adam Scott surrounded Tiger Woods after the second round of the 2008 WGC-CA Championship contested on the Blue Monster at Doral Golf Resort & Spa. Ogilvy's 67 left him at -12, a one shot lead over Woods. His last Tour win was the 2006 US Open at Winged Foot. Woods' 66 was one shot better than his round yesterday and featured a pair of eagles. He was remarkably 14 for 14 on putts inside of 10 feet. Scott managed a 68 despite finding water twice during his round. That left him two shots behind Woods and three off the lead at -9. There's a group of three players at -6, but this average golfer considers this to now be a three man, two day event. The rest of the contingent is so far off the pace that mentioning famous names at the bottom is the only attention getter here. So, here we go...........Els +5, Montgomerie +5.

Ogilvy and Scott are best friends as well as Aussie brethren. What are the chances they'll hatch a plan to flip a coin, with the winner continuing on, and the loser charged with Tiger distraction for the next two days?

The Blue Monster has been anything but so far. Light winds, compared to what they could have been, and cork board greens are what have the top players threatening to end up at 15-20 under par. Perhaps a name change is in order. Light Blue Monster? Periwinkle Monster? C'mon, help me here.....

Til' next,
