So, when you're not chipping much or hitting shots out of the bunkers or green sides, which I'm normally doing, it definitely makes it a little bit tougher, " he said.

Woods was joined in the lead by McIlroy who highlighted his round of 10 birdies with a career-best six in succession, beginning with the last hole of his front nine.

Tiger Woods had his lowest round since his last victory more than five years ago, an 8-under 62 with birdie chances on all but two greens and only one bad swing all day.

Four golfers are tied for the third place, they are Keegan Bradley, Alexander Noren, Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama.

CRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland - Hideto Tanihara shot a bogey-free 4-under 66 to take an early three-stroke lead in the second round of the European Masters. The number of players is reduced at each event - with 70 contesting this one - before the top 30 contest the decisive Tour Championship in two weeks' time.

Reigning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Schauffele - trying to land the last Ryder Cup captain's pick for the United States team - followed up his opening-round 63 with a six-under 64 to sit at 13 under in the final FedEx Cup Playoffs event before the Tour Championship.

Tiger Woods was unable to emulate his storming opening round of 62, with his even-par 70 dropping him to 12th spot on the leaderboard.

BMW championship will start at 11:00 AM ET.

"Very simple. I didn't make any putts", Woods said.

"My approach play, my wedge play has been much better, and I putted well. But they didn't go in today".

"I know the release point and I know how it swings and my body morphs into a position where it understands where it needs to be to release the putter, because I've hit hundreds of millions of putts with that thing".

On in two on the 556-yard par-5 16th, Woods' eagle putt from some 30 feet was off-line but he cleaned it up for birdie get to red double digits for the tournament but then immediately gave two shots back, going bogey-bogey at 17 and 18. I think if we do play, the problem might be ball in hand everywhere through the entire way - through the green.

Schauffele said he was on a mission, and the Ryder Cup was merely a byproduct.

The 39-year-old Japanese player had four birdies at the high-altitude Crans-sur-Sierre club to get to 9-under 131. He tied sixth in the U.S. Open and tied second in The Open Championship.
