WINDERMERE, Fla. — The guy in a red shirt put on quite a show Friday in the Hero World Challenge to get into contention.

That was Patrick Reed – and Tiger Woods watched it all.

Reed, playing alongside Woods at Isleworth, was 8 under through 10 holes and wound up with a 9-under 63 in the second round, which was delayed 90 minutes by heavy rain.

Jordan Spieth elected not to finish his round in darkness, mainly because he had a tough chip short of the 18th green and couldn’t see the flag from 30 feet away. He was at 11 under, two strokes ahead of Henrik Stenson, who shot a 68.

Reed was another shot back, along with Justin Rose.

He became the third player this year to shoot a 63 while playing with Woods.

“I never played with Tiger before, besides a practice round at the British,” Reed said. “It was good to finally be able to play with him, especially in competition. It was a lot of fun. We had a good time. I felt like we enjoyed ourselves out there, and luckily I played well.”

Woods was better than his opening 77, except for a sour ending because of another flubbed chip. He was making progress toward his goal of getting back to even par for the tournament, making an eagle and two birdies in a span of four holes. But he closed a double bogey for a 70 and remained in last place, 14 shots behind Spieth.

Woods is playing for the first time since Aug. 9 at the PGA Championship. He took nearly four months off to strengthen his muscle structure, and during the time away, he hired a new swing coach.

His swing looks fine. His short game does not.

EUROPEAN TOUR: A charging baboon nearly ran into Luke Donald at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa.

The Englishman managed to get himself out of the way, however, and shot a 9-under 63 to take a two-stroke lead after the second round of the European Tour’s season-opening tournament.

With seven birdies on the first 10 holes, Donald was one shot off Lee Westwood’s course record at the Gary Player Country Club.

The only time Donald panicked on the course nestled in the wilderness of northern South Africa was when a large baboon came running toward him as he made his way to his ball. Donald was warned by playing partner Shane Lowry and quickly dodged out of the way, and the baboon kept going.

“He didn’t really pay any attention to me in the end but gave me a bit of a fright when Shane said, `Watch out!’ They are big and strong and you wouldn’t want to mess with them, that’s for sure,” Donald said. “So I got well out of the way. (I) jumped pretty high.”

Donald’s round was four strokes better than anyone else and put him at 10-under 134 overall. He was two strokes ahead of Ross Fisher, with Alexander Levy (70) a further two shots back at 6 under.
