Woods Slips at Deutsche Bank Open

May 19, 2000

ALVESLOHE, Germany (AP) _ Tiger Woods made a charge then faded with two late bogeys, and Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez took a two-stroke lead today after the second round of the Deutsche Bank Open.

Woods bogeyed the 16th and 18th holes to finish with a 2-under-par 70 for the second straight day. With a 69, defending champion Jimenez was 8-under-par after 36 holes _ four shots ahead of Woods.

``It wasn’t an ideal finish,″ Woods said. ``But I didn’t put myself out of the tournament.″

Paul McGinley of Ireland and Englishman Peter Baker tied for second at 138 in the $2.7 million tournament.

Jimenez, a Ryder Cup player who took the lead by shooting a first-round 67, lost his lead only for a few holes early in the second round when several players made runs at him before falling back.

``It was a nice solid round,″ Jimenez said.

Spain’s Jose Maria Olazabal had the day’s best round, firing a 65 after opening with a 75.
