“It was fun, it was fun to compete again. It was fun to be out there. We had a great pairing today. Pat played great, Charley was solid all day and I was probably a little bit rusty,” said Woods.

At last year’s Farmers Insurance Open, Woods carded rounds of 76-72 and missed the cut. It was his only official start of the 2016-2017 season.

The seven-time FIO winner has failed to break par in his last four rounds at this tournament.
