Woods ends layoff with 3-under 69

Woods ends layoff with 3-under 69

He also played the five par-5 holes in 1 over par, making two bogeys (one after having to take an unplayable lie at the 15th hole), an obvious area where he will need to improve.

Tiger Woods made the turn at one under par in the opening round of the Hero World Challenge at the Albany resort in the Bahamas. "It was fun to be part of a scorecard again". Woods had a very solid day and managed to finish with a three-under 69, just three strokes off the current clubhouse leader Tommy Fleetwood.

"To come out here and score like I did, that was nice".

A birdie chance from similar range went begging on the par-3 second, but Woods moved into red figures in style on the par-5 third, drilling a 2-iron from 260 yards on to the green and two-putting from 45 feet. He outdrove his playing partner, this year's PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas, more often than not, capped an 18-yard putt to save par on No. 9 with a fist pump and finished just three shots out of the lead.

"But it's a little different when you've got to tee it up in a tournament".

Woods, making his first start since withdrawing from the Dubai Desert Classic in February, went out in 35 shots with two birdies and a bogey, before returning in 34 shots with three birdies and a bogey. I had a lot of adrenaline going there. "Those are the internal struggles I've not been through in a while".

Fleetwood is making his first start in the 18-man tournament and will look to cap his breakthrough season with another victory before getting married on Tuesday. World
No 1 Dustin Johnson and Open champion Jordan Spieth are two behind along with Justin Rose and Kevin Chappell.
