Tiger Woods held a three-shot lead over Zach Johnson halfway through Sunday's final round of the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.

Woods was 13 under par for the event after shooting a two-under 34 on the front nine at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. He made birdies at the second and fifth holes, which are both par-fives.

Johnson, who started the day two strokes behind Woods, struggled to generate much momentum. He made just one birdie on his way to a one-under 36 on the front nine to reach 10 under for the tournament.

Bubba Watson was third at eight under par, followed by Matt Kuchar at seven under. Kuchar jumped into contention with a five-under 31 on the front nine holes.

The tournament benefits Woods' charities, and this is the final year the event is being played in Southern California before moving to Florida next year.

Woods has won the tournament a record five times.
