Tiger Woods at Arnold Palmer

Tiger Woods at Arnold Palmer

A share of third at two under includes Woods' playing partner Hideki Matsuyam.

The 14-time major champion made birdie on all four par fives, marking the first time he has birdied all par fives in a round on the PGA Tour since the 2015 Players Championship. The conditions provided another test for Woods, who said: "My hands are cold". "I was just trying to lag it down there, just make my par and get outta here and it had a crash at the hole, which I'm not complaining about, and it went in".

The temperature had warmed considerably by the time Paul Goydos began play as part of the first afternoon threesome off No. 10. The leader is Jimmy Walker at -5.

And as he continues his countdown to The Masters in earnest in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill today, he has a chance to slip under the radar for another few hours at least should Tiger Woods continue his nearly superhuman comeback.

Tiger Woods has continued his strong form ahead of the Masters. He was the best at that. "I didn't even think about playing out here".

On Thursday, Goydos carded back-to-back bogeys to slip to two-under, then grinded out an even-par second nine for a two-under in the round.

The resulting double bogey left McIlroy alongside Tommy Fleetwood, Graeme McDowell and Justin Rose on three under, Rose having recovered from being four over par after six holes with seven birdies in the next 10.

Woods is backing up from a second placing at the Valspar Championship last week. "I'm happy with the start, and would like to build on that", said Stenson, who required only 20 putts.

"Very eager", Woods said, "I feel like I'm physically able to do it again and it's going to be a lot of fun".

Reed, a five-time tour victor, said he would love to be paired with Woods in a late group on Sunday.

But the electricity of the day came from Woods, the 42-year-old superstar who has not won a major since the 2008 US Open and hasn't captured any title since the 2013 World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational.

And Woods' impressive putt certainly got fans talking on social media. "Tiger was that intimidating".
