Tiger Woods Just Shot 65 at the Hero World Challenge, His Best Round Since August of 2015


Tiger Woods just turned in a bogey free round at the Hero World Challenge that included seven birdies for a score of 65. Woods currently trails leader J.B. Holmes by six strokes, and is five strokes ahead of Jimmy Walker who is in last at one-under, but really, who cares because he played great today.

After a hot start on Thursday in his first round back after a long layoff, Woods faltered on the back nine and was in 17th place in a field of 18.

On Friday, Woods went out and did the same and carded a 33 on the front nine, but instead of losing steam on the back he turned it around and appeared to be dialed in and made five birdies. Woods was hitting fairways, playing safe, and making putts.

Woods told his caddie Joe LaCava after getting up and down at eight, “I’m not dropping a shot today.”

He even gave a vintage Tiger fist pump.

This is Tiger’s lowest round at the Hero World Challenge since December 6th, 2013 when he shot 62.
