All eyes though, as expected, were on Tiger Woods and the tournament host gave glimpses of a strong return to competitive golf putting up a sturdy show on the back nine for a day's card of three-under 69 at tied eighth, three shots off the leader.

The legendary American was three shots adrift of Fleetwood, not due to tee off for his second round until 12.38pm local time, after the first round but was soon alongside the Englishman.

On the back nine, he picked up three more birdies before a bogey on the 15th pegged him back again.

"Tiger is back", Carter said of Woods' Thursday performance. "I've still got a long way to go", added Woods, who also missed the entire 2015-2016 season.

"I had a hard time all day with the speed on the greens".

England's Tommy Fleetwood, fresh off winning the European Tour's Race to Dubai, leads the way after a 6-under 66.

Woods smiles as he leaves the 18th green. To come out here and score like I did, that was nice. He outdrove his playing partner, this year's PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas, more often than not, capped an 18-yard putt to save par on No. 9 with a fist pump and finished just three shots out of the lead.

"I hadn't played in a while after some of the difficulties I've been through".

The back nine, as he admitted himself, was a little disappointing, with just one birdie coming his way at the par five 11th. "The greens they seemed to be a foot faster", he said after his round. I didn't make a bogey and really good par to finish the round off. Today he is paired with Henrik Stenson.
