Tiger Woods brush with out-of-bounds shows fire still burning

Lining it up Tiger Woods is favourite for the Arnold Palmer Invitational after an impressive display at the Valspar Championship

Woods, who is working his way back after undergoing back surgery in April a year ago, is competing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, and he's certainly justifying his position as pre-tournament favourite.

The 14-time major champion, among the early starters on a Bay Hill layout where he has won seven times before, showed the peak form that sparked his best finish in five years last week and none of the back pain that sidelined him most of the past two seasons.

This week's tournament should put him in a good frame of mind. "I was just trying to lag it down there, just make my par and get outta here and it had a crash at the hole, which I'm not complaining about, and it went in". "But I have those memories".

Woods has not won a PGA tournament since 2013. "I can wear red and black again", he said, alluding to his longstanding sartorial choice to copy Woods's final-round colors, "and then we'll just kind of have a battle to see who plays best".

This week, he also knows the course but will need to become reacqauinted with some details. I've still got to do the work. And during his opening round at Bay Hill, updated Masters odds installed Woods as the favorite to win what would be his fifth green jacket.

"I think I have it, I feel I'm not really thinking as much around the golf course. But when I do play well here, I play well", said McDowell, who featured an eagle - on the par-five 16th, his seventh hole of his round - two birdies and a bogey. At the Westgate, more bets were placed and more money was wagered on Woods to win the Arnold Palmer than on any other golfer.

Reports of Tiger Woods's resurrection have not been exaggerated. The electricity that courses through the crowds when Woods is playing well, he added, "just seems to kind of elevate, and for some reason it just kind of gets me going". It has a deep place in my heart.

Tiger Woods plays his shot out of the rough on the 16th hole during the first round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge on Thursday in Orlando.
