Woodland's 61 leaves him tied for CIMB lead with Leishman: Gary Woodland shot an 11-under 61 to tie the course record Friday and join Marc Leishman in a share of the second-round lead at the PGA Tour's CIMB Classic.

Woodland and Leishman (62) were at 14-under 130 on the revamped TPC Kuala Lumpur West course.

Woodland's bogey-free nines of 30-31 matched the 61 that Justin Thomas shot while winning the 2015 tournament, his first of two titles in a row in Kuala Lumpur.

Shubhankar Sharma (64) and Paul Casey (65) were tied for third, one stroke behind. Both golfers had stretches of four birdies and an eagle in five holes.

First-round leader Bronson Burgoon shot 69 and was two strokes behind, tied with fellow Americans Scott Piercy (67) and Austin Cook (68).

Thomas shot 69 and was five strokes behind. Defending champion Pat Perez closed with a birdie to shoot 69 and was nine strokes off the lead. Ernie Els shot 72 and was 10 strokes behind.

"It's nice to stay aggressive out there," Woodland said. "This golf course suits up pretty good for me, I've had success here in the past. It's nice to be back and playing well."

Langer birdies 9 of last 10 for share of Champions lead: Bernhard Langer birdied nine of the last 10 holes Friday at rain-softened Prestonwood for a 10-under 62 and share of lead in the PGA Tour Champions' SAS Championship.

Tom Lehman and Gene Sauers matched the 61-year-old Langer on the course that was dry enough to play after heavy rain from Hurricane Michael hit the area Thursday.

"Course was in phenomenal shape considering the rain we had yesterday," Langer said. "I had some pictures from 13 and 14 fairway, the creek down there. I didn't think we were going to play on time today. It was obviously mud balls, that's why we played preferred lies on the fairways, but the greens were great and the whole course presented itself pretty special."

Langer birdied Nos. 9-13, parred the 14th, and birdied the final four.

"It was pretty amazing to go 9 under on the last 10 holes," Langer said "I don't think I've ever done that."
