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.
Australian Open: Roger Federer through to final after Hyeon Chung retires
Chung is now the youngest men's grand slam semi-finalist since Marin Cilic at the 2010 Australian Open. But he has a great composure and I think we're going to see a lot more of him.
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.
We can do this again: Kohli after Johannesburg win
The bowlers were outstanding, I mean to take all the 60 wickets in the series, we haven't done it ever before away from home. Kohli and Vijay batted away close to 20 overs when batting looked the most hard thing on the earth - in the first session.
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.
