Tiger Woods briefly takes lead, in contention at Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods' Masters odds just went way down

Tiger Woods finished Day 2 at the Hero Challenge tied fifth with Francisco Molinari, Matt Kuchar, Kevin Chappell and Hideki Matsuyama.

Woods captivated the golf world by tallying birdies on three of his first four holes and making eagle at the par-5 9th to shoot 5-under 31 on the front nine.

After his round, Woods spoke with Golf Channel's Todd Lewis and said he felt he played well.

The tournament scoreboard is here.

"Tiger is back", Carter said of Woods' Thursday performance. He was 1-over on the final four holes in Round 1. Woods dropped a few shots with poor chips around the green, but most of the field also struggled with the tough bermuda lies here at Albany.

Woods added a second round of 68 to his opening 69 and although now five shots of the pace set by Charley Hoffman he has done enough over his opening two rounds to convince all that this comeback is for real and that he can compete at the highest level again.

Woods started the day off strong with a birdie on the first hole to move to four-under, two strokes back. "We've got two more days and I think it's supposed to blow a little harder tomorrow". As you can see, even with the fused back, I still have some speed out there and these are all things I've had to learn and will continue to learn.

"I just came back so I have a long way to go and it is going to take time", Woods said.

On the par-five third his eagle putt from just off the green went just wide but left him with an easy birdie. "I was playing with Justin and he's never played with Tiger". "I mean, that's pretty good for 36 holes". He out-drove his playing partner, Henrik Stenson, by 25 yards.
