Tiger Woods briefly takes lead, in contention at Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods tees off on the first hole at the Hero World Challenge golf tournament at Albany Golf Club in Nassau Bahamas Thursday Nov. 30

Woods was flying at that stage, six under through 11 holes, but he would bogey the 12th after three-putting from 25 feet, and then droped another shot at the last after a wayward drive to sign for a 68. Fleetwood tees off at 12:38pm et.

In his first start in 10 months and only the fourth in two years following four back surgeries, the former world no. 1 didn't seem to have issues with his back and moved with his ease. I had a lot of adrenalin going out there and had to dial it back a little. Woods dropped a few shots with poor chips around the green, but most of the field also struggled with the tough bermuda lies here at Albany.

"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 smiles as he leaves the 18th green. "I have the chance now to play competitive golf again", Woods said afterwards when asked how satisfying his play had been. To come out here and score like I did, that was nice. "They were a foot faster than yesterday, they were really dry and rolling out". "I played nine straight days at home before coming here and that's one of the reasons I did just that". He outdrove his playing partner, this year's PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas, more often than not, capped an 18-yard putt to save par on No. 9 with a fist pump and finished just three shots out of the lead.

Twice runner-up Henrik Stenson was tied 12th at two-under 70, while holder Hideki Matsuyama was tied 14th at 1-under.
