By Mark Lamport-Stokes THOUSAND OAKS, California (Reuters) - Tiger Woods' closest challengers were left scratching their heads in disbelief after the world number one took control of the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge with a 10-under-par 62. Five-times champion Woods played near-flawless golf on Friday in the second round of the tournament he hosts, equaling the course record he set at Sherwood Country Club in 2007 to end the day two shots clear.

Yanukovych's official website said the meeting at Putin's Black Sea retreat in Sochi focused on "trade and economic cooperation ... and preparation for the future treaty on strategic partnership". But some reports said the two also talked about Russia providing Ukraine with billions of dollars in loans and gas in return for its decision to spurn an EU trade agreement that would have opened the way to its membership in the 28-nation bloc.
