PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Alex Cejka ran off three straight
birdies Friday morning and kept right on going, shooting 5-under 67 to build a two-shot lead over Ian Poulter at The Players Championship.

Cejka played before only a few dozen fans for most of his morning round and gave them quite a treat with six birdies on his first 11 holes to build a big lead, then playing 1 over the rest of the way.

Poulter played in stifling heat later in the way, as the wind began to swirl. He managed a 68 and will play in the final group Saturday.

Tiger Woods was on the cut line until a pitch out of deep rough - one of several cases where his short game saved him - for a birdie on the par-5 ninth that sent him to a 69 and put him seven shots behind.
