Tiger Woods continues to confound the golfing world with yet another impressive round at the Hero World Challenge in New Providence in the Bahamas.

After two strong rounds that had many followers believing Tiger was back, the former world number one stumbled, recording four of his five bogeys in the first seven holes to finish at three-over par 75.

The solid effort, which included an eagle, four birdies and two bogeys, left the former world number one at seven-under 137 in his first tournament in almost 10 months following spinal fusion surgery.

"For me, I thought it was great", said Woods, who underwent spinal fuson surgery in April - his fourth back operation in the space of three years - after withdrawing from his most recent tournament in February in Dubai after an opening 77. "That was an eight to nine out of 10 performance from Tiger today", he said on Sky Sports. To come out here and score like I did was nice.

"It was fun to get out there and actually be part of a scorecard again".

The 41-year-old tournament host led for a short time following a magnificent start to his second round, but it was a very different story on moving day as he bogeyed the first after pulling his tee shot left. I blew a lot of them past the hole. I had a lot of adrenaline going and was hitting it a little longer than normal.

"The only thing I struggled with was the speed of the greens". Woods was 1 over on the back nine with one birdie and two bogeys and now sits five shots off the lead at 7 under. Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth were another two strokes back.
