Woods got back to one shot below par to open his Back Nine on the first hole and back to even on the day on the 14th hole.
Golf intellectuals called it 90 feet. Woods had back-to-back up-and-down par saves on Nos.
Tiger Woods is 10 shots off the lead after birdieing his final hole Friday to go to 1-under-par for the tournament, making the cut with no room to spare in his first PGA Tour event after a yearlong absence.
It didn't qualify as a life-changing road fork, but it did rid a Friday afternoon of any possible tedium.
Who needs to hit fairways?
His return to the PGA Tour drew a positive review from fellow competitor Patrick Reed.
"It's one thing to do it at home, it's totally another thing to do it out here", he said.
US Economy Grew at 2.6% Rate in Fourth Quarter
Among them: Synchronized global economic growth and renewed investment spending by USA firms, who had spent years hunkering down. GDP, the value of everything produced domestically, rose at an annualized rate of 2.6% from October through December.
Then, Palmer had surgery on his left shoulder to clean out bone spurs and had not played since August until he headed to Honolulu two weeks ago. It was just trying to get used to the firmness of the green - we can hear the ball land from the fairway.
"I tried hard as I possibly could out there", Woods said.
Fused, he summarized: "I grinded around".
"The greens are bumpy and I hit a lot of good putts", he said. If I could somehow post under par for the day, it would be good work and I was able to get there.
Gaudy scores seemed to fly around everywhere. Jon Rahm, the defending champion who needs to win to reach No. 1 in the world, took double bogey on the last hole for a 75 and fell four shots behind.
Ryan Palmer had a chance to tie him for the lead until he came out of a wedge and missed the green to the right.
"Everyone's so stacked up, anybody can win the tournament who makes the cut". He spent the rest of the time scrapping to surmount that.
National Football League mock draft: Broncos, Redskins benefit as top QBs tumble
Someone could be getting a steal, perhaps in the mid to late rounds, when they pick up Smythe in April's NFL Draft . Mayfield didn't hold back when asked what the Browns would be getting if they turn in a card with his name on it.
Woods was looking forward to testing his game under pressure over two more rounds. They shortened the season-opening event to 54 holes in an attempt to complete play Sunday, and didn't rule out a Monday finish.
Feng had nine holes left when play was suspended because of darkness.
Woods bounced back with a birdie at the sixth. He bogeyed Nos. 1, 5 and 13, but birdied Nos.
There just weren't enough cheers for his liking.
He poured in an eight footer for par, but failed to repeat the trick for birdie on the 202 yard 12th after a brilliant seven iron - easily his best shot so far. "Well, that hit concrete", he said.
"Got off to a rough start, obviously, by bogeying the first two holes". He didn't know enough about the leader board to know how much it could matter. "It was a hard putt".
Woods then had his fans at fever pitch with birdies at his 14th and 16th holes before delivering a silence in dropping a shot at his 17th for bogey.
