Woods in the running behind Levin

Spencer Levin of the United States maintained his position at the top of the leaderboard in the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational yesterday while Tiger Woods moved into contention.

Three shots in front overnight, Levin fired a two-under-par 70 in glorious sunshine at Bay Hill where Thursday's gusty winds had vanished.

Spain's Sergio Garcia indicated that he might be find his form in time for the US Masters next month with a four-under-par 68 that left him well placed going into the weekend.

The six-times champion Woods, seeking his first tournament victory since November 2009, moved into contention with a 68 that featured five birdies, and finished five off the pace alongside Garcia.
