Golf-Woodland leads Tournament of Champions, McIlroy three back
Woodland, who kicked off his birdie run at the 11th, moved to 12-under 134 at the Kapalua Plantation course on the island of Maui. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy shot a 68 for a share of second place on nine-under alongside Bryson DeChambeau (68) and Kevin Tway (71).
Defending champion Dustin Johnson (74) plunged seven shots behind after a round that included a double-bogey at the fourth hole where he incurred a two-stroke penalty for hitting the wrong ball.
