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

Tiger Woods

Showing no signs of limits in his swing, Woods had two birdies - the first by reaching the 572-yard par-five third hole in two and another at the par-three eighth - before closing with a disappointing bogey on the par-five ninth when he was greenside in two but struggled with his short game.

This moved Woods to 6 under as he entered the back nine and after making par on the 10th, he birdied the 11th which moved him to six under and also put him to the top of the leaderboard.

While he staggered a bit coming home, he finished the day with a 4-under-par 68 and, coupled with his opening-round 69, is at 7 under through 36 holes and in a tie for fifth.

Making his first start in 10 months and just his fourth in two years, Tiger roared in the second round of the Hero World Challenge at Albany Golf Course.

The 14-time major victor subsequently underwent spinal fusion surgery in April, his fourth back operation in the space of three years, and began the week a 40/1 outsider in the 18-man field.

In response, the boy's mother filed a legal note tearing down Epic's lawsuit and calling for it to be thrown out. Moreover, these aimbots are set to attack Twitch Streamers, ensuring they can not win the game.

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. We've got two more days and I think it's supposed to blow a little harder tomorrow.

"It felt great", said Woods.

Putting was a problem for Woods as he was surprised by the quickness of the surface. "I mean, that's pretty good for 36 holes". "That's going to take time, a lot more practice, a lot more training and more tournaments". I got a chance to go out there and play competitive golf again. 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.

"I didn't know what to expect, because I hadn't played".
