Tiger Woods finishes second round of Challenge four shots off lead

Tiger Woods Shoots 68 in His Second Round at the Hero World Challenge Looks Good

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.

Another birdie at number 11 had him six-under for the day before he three-putted the par-three 12th hole for his first bogey of the round.

Woods was five shots adrift of Hoffman at the halfway mark and declared he was "still in it" in his first competitive tournament for 10 months after recovering from a fourth back operation.

Even for Woods - the redshirted one who, with is unprecedented showreel, taught golf to ignore every barrier that had ever been there before - this seemed surreal.


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.

The 41-year-old had a lot of fun today and gamers/fans are now licking their chops for 2018 to roll around. Instead, Woods shot 40 on the front nine, didn't make a birdie until the 14th hole and wound up with a 75. "Those are the internal struggles I've not been through in a while". "The greatest player of his generation has come back at an age when comebacks aren't normal".

Said defending champion Hideki Matsuyama of Japan here on Wednesday, "I am sure Justin or Jordan (Spieth), we haven't seen his best of golf, but if he gets back to that point every week he will be the favourite and he will win a lot of tournaments".
