Tiger Woods lost the plot during round two of the Genesis Open, resulting in a 5-over-par 37-39=76 to end his week on 6-over 148, four strokes off the cut line, which will take place on Saturday morning due to darkness stranding the final 15 golfers today.
Woods didn't do himself any favor by making his first two starts of the season at Torrey Pines and Riviera Country Club. Both tough driving courses that will deflate driving accuracy numbers. This week, Woods split 13 (of 28) fairways, ranking 87th in the field but found just 16 greens in regulation from there. His flat stick carried him through round one but the putter went cold today, losing 2.053 strokes to the field, in that regard. Woods ended his week with eight birdies but that wasn't enough to offset 12 bogeys and a double. On the bright side, Woods has committed to next week's Honda Classic. It's a semi-home game for him and played on a course where he won't need to hit as many drivers. The 42-year-old has also never missed back-to-back cuts in his career so that will be tested next week. Feb 16 - 9:18 PM

Tiger Woods hasn't pegged it at the Genesis Open since 2006 but he'll make his return this week for the 2018 edition.

With TGR Live running this week's festivities, Woods would have been on the grounds regardless of whether he was competing or not. It's certainly nice to see him finally back in the field, though. In 10 previous attempts at Riviera CC, Woods is 8-for-10 with a seven-pack of top 20s. However, he never collected a blue ribbon here, finishing runner-up back in 1999. After a T23 at the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods is surely itching to get more reps and potentially get back into contention. Driving accuracy appeared to be a problem for him, but his distance was certainly there. His weekend finish at Torrey Pines was very promising so gamers should feel free to hop back on the Tiger Train if they want to be early to the return party.

Seven-time past champion and World No. 647 Tiger Woods fashioned an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to conclude his 17th appearance on 3-under 285, up 13 places to T26 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Woods finished T23.

The 42-year-old carded rounds of 72-71-70-72. For the week, he totaled 15 birdies against 10 bogeys and one double. This is the first time the California native has completed four rounds in an official TOUR event since T10 at the Wyndham Championship in August, 2015. That was 127 weeks (2.4 years ago), but just two official starts ago. In the finale, the 79-time TOUR winner mustered three (of 14) fairways, currently 77th (last place) at 30.36 percent for the week (17/56), and hit 12 greens in regulation, currently T53 at 58.33 percent (42/72). He cancelled four birdies with four squares, took 29 total putts, and posted 1.667 putts per GIR, currently 18th in putts per GIR with a cumulative 1.714. Woods' most recent TOUR win was the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone 4.5 years ago.

Tiger Woods was slow out of the gate in round two of the Farmers Insurance Open but rallied late to record a 1-under-par 33-38=71 at Torrey Pines North, climbing to 1-under 143 on the week, good enough to secure a weekend tee time, barring a massive shift on the late leaderboard. UPDATE: Woods made the cut T65 on the number and goes off No. 10 tee in Round 3 at 10:10 am PST.

Woods started his day on the 10th tee at Torrey Pines North. He penciled eight pars and a double bogey before making the turn at 2-over for the day (and tournament). His chances to play the weekend looked grim at that point but four birdies on his homeward nine catapulted him back into the red, giving him a good chance at playing the weekend in his first official event since a missed cut here last year. The 42-year-old cited poor approach play as his problem in R1 but today it was his driving. Woods conjured just 3 (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation. This 36 holes of golf was a true grind for Woods, but he will now have two more rounds at Torrey Pines South to shake off some more rust. This is the California native's first made cut on TOUR since finishing T10 at the 2015 Wyndham, which was just two official starts ago.

Making his first start official start in nearly a year, Tiger Woods settled for an even-par 37-35=72 during round one of the Farmers Insurance Open, sitting just outside the top 80 after day one.

An eight-time winner at Torrey Pines, Woods has picked a good spot to return to action. However, there was some obvious rust in his approach game today. He didn't have a scoring chance inside 25 feet until the par-5 sixth hole. As the day progressed, he did show some flashes before his day was done. Most notably, nearly jarring his tee shot at the par-3 16th from 189 yards. He walked off the course losing 0.538 strokes approaching-the-green and another 1.398 strokes putting. Next up will be an appointment with the North Course on day two. He will likely need to pick up a shot or two if he wants a chance to play the weekend.

Seven-time Farmers Insurance Open champion Tiger Woods is making his return to competition this week as he preps for his battle with Torrey Pines.

Gearing up for one of his infamous returns, Woods finished T9 at the Hero World Challenge, an unofficial money event played in early December near his home in the Bahamas. Now, he'll turn his attention toward another familiar venue for the Farmers, not unlike last year. During the 2017 edition, he was seeing the North Course renovations for the first time and posted rounds of 76-72 to miss the cut before immediately hopping on a plane to Dubai which was the scene of his latest injury. In addition to his seven Farmers titles, Woods also boasts a 2008 U.S. Open victory at Torrey Pines South. Without the competitive reps, gamers should be cautious in the early stages of this return, but very optimistic about what's to come in 2018.

Five-time champion and World No. 1199 Tiger Woods bogeyed his final two holes en route to a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in the final round of the Hero World Challenge to conclude his 16th appearance on 8-under 280, currently up one place to T9. UPDATE: With play completed, Woods finished T9, 10 shots back of champion Rickie Fowler, who shot 61.

Two takeaways from this 18-man exhibition in The Bahamas: the 41-year-old, who turns 42 on Dec. 30th, completed four rounds for the first time since here last year -- where he finished 15th on 4-under 284 (73-65-70-76) -- and, he did so pain-free. The Stanford product posted rounds of 69-68-75-68 with two eagles, 17 birdies, 11 bogeys and one double bogey-6. At one point during Round 2 on Friday, he was atop the leaderboard on 8-under thru nine holes with an outward 31, but came home in 37, same scores he signed for in the finale. Woods, who stated post-round that he was happiest about his driving this week, played his final 45 holes in level-par.

Tiger Woods ballooned in round three of the Hero World Challenge, posting a 3-over-par 40-35=75 to fall five spots on the live leaderboard, sitting at 4-under 212 with one round to go.

Woods was the star of the show in rounds one and two. He was still the main attraction today, but his play didn't match up. With the scoring conditions being the toughest of the week, it showed during Woods' round. There were plenty of small misses today, but they generally ended up in the worst possible spot, forcing Woods to grind out a bushel of bogeys. After swallowing five bogeys in his opening 10 holes he calmed down and finally circled his first birdie at the par-4 14th (jokingly giving the fans a bow and a hat tip for his efforts). He would add one more birdie coming into the clubhouse. At the time he signed his scorecard there were only three golfers on the course in red numbers. This was really a difficult day for Woods and for everyone else in this week's 18-man field.

Tiger Woods kept his foot on the gas with a 4-under-par 31-37=68 during round two of the Hero World Challenge, keeping his name in the mix after 36 holes (7-under 137).

Woods answered a lot of questions on day one, living up to the pre-tournament hype. He didn't lose much steam today as he looked stellar from tee-to-green, but couldn't find his putting stroke. The highlight of the round came at the par-5 ninth hole where he skied a 3-wood to land it softly and set up an eagle attempt (which he converted). That moved him to 8-under on the week to grab the lead. He fizzled a bit on the homeward nine, citing some increased green speeds as the reason why his putting dipped in round two. Notably, Woods also had a few superb chips today, erasing any doubts that may have popped up in R1. He sits at T5 on the live leaderboard, in a great position at the midpoint.

Playing an exhibition in The Bahamas, Tiger Woods fired a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during round one of the Hero World Challenge, living up to the pre-tournament hype as he sits just three strokes off the early pace set by Tommy Fleetwood.

Making his first start since a mid-tournament WD (Dubai Desert Classic) in February, there were plenty of questions marks entering the week. Woods answered them beautifully today and it all started off the tee. In previous returns, Woods could be seen holding back or showing signs of pain. There was none of that today and it resulted in a strong performance off-the-tee (just one really poor drive). Woods dropped a few shots with poor chips around the green, but most of the field also struggled with the tough bermuda lies here at Albany. This round featured five birdies and even included a signature Tiger fist pump (early in the round when he saved par with a putt from just off the green at the par-4 fourth). The 41-year-old had a lot of fun today and gamers/fans are now licking their chops for 2018 to roll around.

Past champ and World No. 1199 Tiger Woods returns to the Hero World Challenge, his first competitive action anywhere in nearly 11 months, and is paired in Round 1 on Thursday with World No. 3 and reigning FedExCup champion and PGA TOUR Player of the Year Justin Thomas (12:05 pm ET).

This is the 19th HWC and Woods has played in 15 of them, winning five times, most recently the 2011 edition at Sherwood CC, site of all five W's. He's also finished runner-up five times, most recently a playoff loss (Sherwood) in 2014 to Zach Johnson. The 41-year-old's last official TOUR title (of 79) came at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone 225 weeks (1,571 days) ago. He won five times in 2013 in 16 events en route to POY honors, but has since conjured just 19 TOUR starts with one top 10, a T10 at the 2015 Wyndham 119 weeks ago. Woods, who's attempting a(nother) come back after his fourth back surgery in April, finished 15th (of 18) here last year (73-65-70-76) after missing 67 weeks. He chased that (eight weeks later) with a MC at the Farmers and a mid-tourney WD on the Euro Tour 43 weeks ago.

Tiger Woods announced his intentions to peg it at the Hero World Challenge, which gets underway on the last day of November. It will be his first scheduled event since early February.

Woods has been out of action since the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour (withdrew after first-round 77 due to back spasms). He would later have surgery for the injury. Today, Woods announced on his website that he will tee it up at the limited-field Hero World Challenge next month. It's an unofficial PGA TOUR event that does offer world ranking points. The tournament is managed by his foundation and takes place in The Bahamas. That sets up for a nice easing back into the competitive motions. Gamers shouldn't expect much considering he'll be facing off against 17 golfers currently ranked inside the top 30 in the world. However, it's a great sign for his 2018 outlook.

Tiger Woods spent the morning in jail after being arrested on DUI charges in Jupiter, Florida.

WPTV reported that Tiger Woods was taken into custody for driving under the influence around 3:00 a.m. ET this morning and was released at 10:50 on his own recognizance. This is just five days after he posted a health update on his website saying, "I haven’t felt this good in years." While this DUI doesn't affect his return to golf, it is disappointing to his fans, especially the young ones that still look up to him as a role model.

Tiger Woods announced that he underwent successful back surgery and will rest before undergoing the rehab process.

Woods shared the news on Tigerwoods.com, saying "The surgery went well, and I'm optimistic this will relieve my back spasms and pain." He would later that add that typical patients return to full activity in about six months. Woods has proved to be anything but typical, though, when it comes to back pain. Optimistic gamers may want to tick off the Safeway Open or Hero World Challenge as potential return spots. Realistically, there is a good chance his return is much, much later than that.

Tiger Woods declared himself unfit to play at next week's Masters Tournament and still has no timetable for return as he continues to rehab his back injuries.

Woods posted the news on TigerWoods.com, "Unfortunately, I won't be competing in this year's Masters. I did about everything I could to play, but my back rehabilitation didn't allow me the time to get tournament ready." This is deja vu for gamers who found out this same news last year while viewing the second round of the Shell Houston Open. While this is not shocking news for anyone that has been following his progress over the last few years, it is still a disappointment.
