Tiger Woods continues his remarkable comeback at the Hero World Challenge

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. After a massive drive on the ninth, Woods rifled a 3-wood from 275 yards to 18 feet and canned the putt for eagle.

Against long odds, facing some of the best players in the world and coming just seven months after spinal fusion surgery to his lower back, the former world No. 1 and victor of 14 majors and 79 PGA Tour titles put himself in position Friday to actually win for the first time since 2013.

"I hadn't played in a while after some of the difficulties I've been through. That's going to take time, a lot more practice, a lot more training and more tournaments".

While Woods made a comeback on this same property in the same tournament past year, this time looks different. "Only thing I really struggled with today was the speed of the greens. My body is accustomed to playing". The next hole is par-five. His score could have been lower if not for three bogeys but he was pleased with his solid putting.

"I proved that the surgery was successful", he said, referring to the spinal fusion that he had in April, which knocked him out of commission for the rest of the season. "On 17, I was able to make a bunker shot to sort of cap off the day".

"It's nice to see again", Hoffman said.

"I didn't know what to expect, because I hadn't played". He's never heard the roars he produces out here. Fleetwood carded seven birdies but was hurt by two bogeys and a double-bogey.
