Tiger Woods Cards Opening Round 69 at Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods' Masters odds just went way down

The 41-year-old's round could have been better were it not for a bogey on the par-5 15th hole. Regardless of what this means for the future, let's just enjoy what we're seeing from Woods and appreciate the fact that he's back on top of a leaderboard after almost a year off from professional golf. 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. Woods had a very solid day and managed to finish with a three-under 69, just three strokes off the current clubhouse leader Tommy Fleetwood.

Tiger Woods continues to confound the golfing world with yet another impressive round at the Hero World Challenge in New Providence in the Bahamas.

"I'm just getting back".

You Can See An Enormous Supermoon Illuminating Vancouver This Weekend
The best time to enjoy the supermoon is right after moonrise and before sunrise, when the moon is sitting on the horizon. But for those who can't wake up that early, the moon will still look bigger - and brighter - throughout the night.

One would have to think those numbers were even higher on Friday as word went around of the way Woods was playing.

The day belonged to Charley Hoffman, however, who shot the round of the tournament so far - a stunning nine-under-par 63 that rocketed him to the top of the leaderboard on 12 under. "Now I have a chance to go out there and play competitive golf again". 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.

That the world no. 18 was up at 4 am to feed young son Frankie seemed to have no effect on his fluent play and he said he felt good with his scores. He made five birdies and two bogies and hit seven of 13 fairways, 11 of 18 greens and had 27 putts.
