2012 WGC-Cadillac Championship: Bubba Watson Takes One-Shot Lead After 36 Holes

American Bubba Watson recorded nine birdies and an eagle Friday on his way to shooting a 62 at the TPC-Blue Monster at Doral, Fla. Friday. The round left the American one shot ahead of England's Justin Rose and two ahead of Australia's Adam Scott entering the weekend. Rose nearly matched Watson shot-for-shot, but settled for a 64, while Scott fired a more pedestrian 68.

Tiger Woods is one of a group of six players tied for 15th after he followed up his even-par 72 with a five-under 67 on Friday. Phil Mickelson also shot 72 on Thursday, but could only manage a one-under 71 on Friday, which left him in a tie for 34th place with eleven other golfers.

The tournament resumes Saturday.
