Stricker takes control
Stricker was at 15-under 131, two shots off the 36-hole record that Ernie Els set in 2003.
Kevin Na, six strokes back at 9 under, wasn't even part of the picture until he holed a 5-iron from 221 yards for eagle on the 554-yard 17th hole, then hit 3-wood down the hill on the par-5 18th to about 10 feet for another eagle.
Oosthuizen tied for lead
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga shrugged off a slow start and beat Gael Monfils, 7-5, 6-3, in an all-French final at the Qatar Open, giving himself a confidence boost for the Australian Open. The sixth-ranked Tsonga, who reached the final when Roger Federer withdrew with an injury, fell behind 3-1 before finding a rhythm, coming to the net more often and reeling off the final four games to win the first set.
