Tiger shares Tour Championship lead, Day well placed

Tiger shares Tour Championship lead, Day well placed

Tiger Woods doesn't really have to do anything else for 2018 to be considered a success for him.

"The only hard part was getting my speed on the greens early".

A three-putt bogey at the first was the only blemish as Woods added four birdies before striking a crisp five-wood from 255 yards to the final green.

"Once it reached its peak and I saw it was going through the wind I started walking (because) I knew it was good", he said.

After starting off with a birdie, Finau made back-to-back bogeys at holes 4 and 5. "Hopefully I'll learn from that and not hit as many errant tee shots". "All in all, I had a lot of control today". In 2017, Justin Thomas capped off an incredible season, one that included five victories - including his first major at the PGA Championship - and a career-best 59 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, with the FedExCup. The world number nine birdied eight and then played the 11th to 18th holes in three under.

But he was projected 24 on that list by the end of the day, good enough but only just. "I didn't get off to necessarily a great start on my swing but I managed to kick my way around", said Fowler.

"I think I missed one fairway, which the ball was in the first cut, and I think I hit every green from there on in. Made it very stress free".

Of the five, the one happiest with his day's work was the new world No 1, Justin Rose, who marked his recently acquired status with a fine 66, although defending champion Justin Thomas and in-form Tony Finau left content as well following rounds of 67.

Sixteen players in the 30-man field broke par on a hot afternoon with only a light breeze, and Thursday was all about staying in the game, especially as it relates to the chase for the FedEx Cup.
