Woods went out in five-under 31, with three birdies in his first four holes and an eagle on the ninth.

A birdie at the first following a ideal drive and a clipped wedge to five feet got the show on the road before further birdies at the par five third and par four fourth moved him into a tie for the lead at six under.

"Frankie woke up about 4am so I fed him and went back to bed but then I got back up and had a bit of toast and then a couple hours later we woke up again and had more play time with Frankie and then went to the course", he said. The next hole is par-three. Grantetd, the Hero World Challenge is essentially an end of season hit-an- giggle in which the lucky invitees get to fight it out for the honour of a $1m winning cheque none of them really need.

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - One of the biggest cheers at the Hero World Challenge was seeing the name Tiger Woods go to the top of the leaderboard.

"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 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.

Charley Hoffman put on a show of his own in the second round, carding 12 birdies, including five straight to close out his round. This round featured five birdies and even included a signature Tiger fist pump (early in the round when he saved par with a putt from just off the green at the par-4 fourth).
