Woods opens with 69 at Hero World Challenge

The 41-year-old's round could have been better were it not for a bogey on the par-5 15th hole.

Woods's back nine was much more uneven, with a three-putt bogey at the par-3 12th, and another bogey at 18, where he fanned his tee shot into some clumpy sand right of the fairway.

A birdie at the first following a flawless drive and a clipped wedge to five feet got the show on the road before further birdies at the par five third and par four fourth moved him into a tie for the lead at six under.

"I hadn't played in a while after some of the difficulties I've been through". He opened with a birdie on the first hole after knocking a wedge to 4 feet, then added two more birdies in the next three holes. In previous returns, Woods could be seen holding back or showing signs of pain. Justin Thomas, Charley Hoffman and Francesco Molinari shot identical scores to be tied alongside Woods.

In just his second competitive round after a 10-month injury absence, Woods posted a 4-under 68 at the Hero World Challenge, moving him into contention for his first victory in four years. I had a lot of adrenalin going out there and had to dial it back a little.

"I struggled all day with speed on the greens". "It was great to be part of a scorecard again and I am delighted with how it went after all the problems I have had".

His first birdie came on the first when a 96-yard approach shot landed five feet from the hole for a simple birdie putt. "I just played solid. They were a foot faster than yesterday, they were really dry and rolling out".
