Woods shoots 69, in contention in Abu Dhabi 

Tiger Woods moved into contention in the second round of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship with a 3-under 69 Friday.

He had three straight birdies on the back nine to finish two shots behind surprise clubhouse leader Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark.

Woods, who was three shots back after the first round, finished with a two-round total of 139. He started slowly, but made three birdies over five holes. He dropped a shot on the 16th after an errant drive landed in deep rough.

Olesen (67) has a one-shot lead over three players including 18-year-old Italian Matteo Manassero (65). Woods is another shot back in third, tied with six other players including Rory McIlroy (72).
