Tiger Woods finishes second round of Challenge four shots off lead

Tiger Tracker Tiger Woods returns to competitive golf at Hero World Challenge			Ryan Young  PGA Tour

Making his first start since a mid-tournament WD (Dubai Desert Classic) in February, there were plenty of questions marks entering the week.

After his round, Woods spoke with Golf Channel's Todd Lewis and said he felt he played well.

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. He dropped a shot on the 12th, before parring through to 17.

The biggest problem Woods appears to be facing is simply stamina. As you can see, even with the fused back, I still have some speed out there and these are all things I've had to learn and will continue to learn.

Asked if he was close to his past level of play, Woods quickly halted such chatter. "A lot more practice, a lot more training and more tournaments". I blew majority past the hole. He said it was on orders of his doctor.

"Tiger is back", Carter said of Woods' Thursday performance. My body's accustomed to playing.

'Morning Joe' Rips Trump For Suggesting Connection to Intern's Death
On Wednesday, Trump suggested that co-host Joe Scarborough should be investigated for the 2001 death of an intern working for him while he was a congressman from Florida.

On the par-five third his eagle putt from just off the green went just wide but left him with an easy birdie. To come out here and score like I did, that was nice. "On 17, I was able to make a bunker shot to sort of cap off the day".

This is Mr. Woods' fourth spine surgery, each initially viewed as successes allowing him to return to play. "I just played solid". He's never heard the roars he produces out here. Fleetwood carded seven birdies but was hurt by two bogeys and a double-bogey.

On the back nine, he picked up three more birdies before a bogey on the 15th pegged him back again.

Hideki Matsuyama also jumped up the leaderboard with a 6-under 66 round, which included a controversial finish.

Dustin Johnson (72) is in 13th place, eight shots behind Hoffman.
