Tiger Woods continued to impress on his return to golf at the Hero World Challenge following a second-round 68.
Woods raced out the blocks on Friday playing his first 11 holes in 6-under to briefly take the outright lead, but then struggled coming home with bogeys at 12 and 18.
Nevertheless, the round bettered his opening score by one shot and he lies tied fifth on 7-under alongside defending champion Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler, and five strokes behind pacesetter Charley Hoffman.
Jordan Spieth moved up into second on 9-under alongside round one leader Tommy Fleetwood.
In-form Justin Rose matched Woods’ 68 to move up to 8-under in fourth.
Woods is currently ranked 1,199th in the world and began the week a 40/1 outsider in the 18-man field.
