Tiger Woods ties for the lead

Tiger Woods' Masters odds just went way down

Woods is five shots behind leader Charley Hoffman, who registered 12 birdies en route to a 63.

Woods built on a solid start in his return to golf by shooting 31 on the front nine at Albany Golf Club, only to stall on the back nine for a 4-under 68.

If the 41-year-old had stirred the memory bank with his first-round 69, then with three birdies in his first four holes, he switched on the mixer and made all the high-points of his career suddenly pour over back into the consciousness.

In his first start in 10 months and only the fourth in two years following four back surgeries, the former world no. 1 didn't seem to have issues with his back and moved with his ease.

Englishman Justin Rose is alone in fourth at 8 under after a second consecutive 4-under 68, one shot ahead of a group that includes Woods, Matsuyama, Francesco Molinari, Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler.

"I hadn't played in a while but it was fun to play with a scorecard in hand again".

"I think everyone was hoping for the best, but this is definitely better than we thought", said his caddie, Joe LaCava. Still, there's a lot more to learn. Those are the internal struggles I haven't had for a while.

Said Fleetwood on his round, "I played really well, got off to a nice start". After two more birdies at the 3rd and 4th, he had a share of the lead for the first time in a professional tournament since the 2015 Wyndham Championship. He stayed there after a birdie on the 11th but a 3-putt bogey on the 12th knocked him off that perch. I really did struggle getting the speed and I blew majority well past the hole and made a few coming back. None", Woods said. "One of the reasons why I played nine straight days at home (recently). So to see Tiger go out and play well doesn't surprise me.
