As so often in his great years, Woods put in a grandstand finish at the par five 18th, sliding home a 28ft eagle putt to send the crowd into rapture.

Tiger boosted hopes of capping his wonderful comeback season with a victory after a vintage performance launched him to a share of the Tour Championship lead on Thursday. Woods nailed an eagle putt from just under 30 feet on the final hole to finish his round at five-under.

"I hit five wood into the green and I knew it was good so I started walking after it".

Woods had begun his round with a bogey but soon regrouped with birdies at the fifth and sixth holes on a course where he claimed the FedEx Cup championship trophy in 2007 and 2009.

"I haven't been on any type of painkillers", Fowler said of his strained right oblique, which kept him out of the first two Playoffs events, THE NORTHERN TRUST and Dell Technologies Championship. They shot 81-80, respectively, in the first round, and not surprisingly went on to miss the cut by a mile.

"I think maybe because I thought it was going to go further, I didn't commit to a couple wedge shots which ultimately cost me on a couple of occasions, but certainly 17, where I managed to hit a poor wedge, I managed to make a putt, so that kind of cancelled it out".

"The shots I missed were on the greens, all had handsome angles". "I've had the opportunity before, and I definitely am in a lot better position now than I was in the early part of my career".

Sergio Garcia shot a 5-under 66 and was three strokes off the first-round lead at the Portugal Masters on Thursday as the Spanish golfer looked to find some form in his final event before next week's Ryder Cup. The world number nine birdied eight and then played the 11th to 18th holes in three under.

Justin Rose sits two shots back in second following his 63, while Rickie Fowler (65) and Hideki Matsuyama (64) headline a four-way tie for third at 10 under.
