Woods tied for fifth after firing a 68 in Bahamas

Woods tied for fifth after firing a 68 in Bahamas

In Act 2 of his much-hyped return at the Hero World Challenge, Woods fired a solid, at times exhilarating, four-under 68, which had him within two shots of the lead when he completed his round.

Tiger Woods is was tied for the lead Friday after 13 holes of the Hero World Challenge, an 18-player exhibition tournament in the Bahamas.

Charley Hoffman's sizzling 63 that included 12 birdies gave him the lead at 12-under 132, three strokes ahead of Jordan Spieth (67) and Tommy Fleetwood (69). "We've got two more days and I think it's supposed to blow a little harder tomorrow".

"It was fun to get out there and actually be part of a scorecard again".

"They seemed to be a foot faster", Woods told The Golf Channel, adding that he was satisfied with his fitness following back surgery in April.

Unfortunately, he bogeyed the next hole and then made par for the rest of the back nine until he bogeyed the 18th which put took a bit of gloss off his mostly, excellent round. It was his first eagle since the second round of the Wyndham Championship in August of 2015.

"I thought it was great", said Woods, who matched the round of his playing partner in PGA Tour's Player of the Year Justin Thomas. A few more pars followed as Woods was all business - nearly expressionless and clearly enjoying his return after 10 months - before providing a peek into his famous fist-pump on the par-3 eighth.

"No issues at all, none", he explained.

"I hadn't played in a while after some of the difficulties I've been through. My body is accustomed to playing".

"I didn't know what to expect, because I hadn't played". As you can see, even with the fused back, I still have some speed out there and these are all things I've had to learn and will continue to learn. This is a new body that I'm getting used to.

His began with a par and after coming close on the opening two holes, picked up his first birdie of the day on the par-five third.
