Tiger Woods strong again at Hero World Championship

Tiger Woods strong again at Hero World Championship

There was a fine approach to five feet on the first, a two-putt birdie from 30 feet on the par-five third and a brilliant second shot to four feet on the third.

Woods played near-flawless golf on the front-nine at Albany Golf Club.

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.

The 14-time major champion, who has had four back operations in the past three years, finished tied for eighth in the 18-strong field with Englishman Tommy Fleetwood in the lead on 66.

But the bare figures did not tell the full story of a round which featured four birdies, a spectacular eagle and signs that Woods has quickly found a solution to the chipping woes which resurfaced on Thursday.

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

New Everton manager could be announced quickly now, 'very advanced' negotiations
Everton are moving closer to appointing Sam Allardyce as their new manager as talks continue to progress positively, BBC reports. Allardyce is seen as a safe option who will keep Everton up, given his track record of saving clubs from the drop.

"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.

Woods also birded the 11th after a superb chip from a tight lie right of the green, but three-putted the next to drop his first shot of the day and also three-putted the par-five 15th for par.

Putting was a problem for Woods as he was surprised by the quickness of the surface. Still, there's a lot more to learn.

"I got the ball in the hole and the balls were going in, which was nice", Hoffman said in an interview with the Golf Channel.

"The only thing I struggled with was the speed of the greens". Rose had five birdies against one bogey. They were dry, they were rolling out and I airmailed a few of them well past the hole.

"I went out there and shot 31 on the front nine". "I was playing with Justin and he's never played with Tiger".
