Tiger Woods shoots 8-under 62 in first round of BMW Championship

Tiger Woods celebrated his return to the United States Ryder Cup team by earning a share of the lead after the first round of the BMW Championship. It was his lowest round since a 61 in the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone, the most recent of his 79 PGA Tour victories. After beginning the day tied for the lead, Woods fell to a tie for 10th five behind leader Xander Schauffele.

The 14-time major victor Woods and McIlroy have a one-stroke lead after both shot eight-under 62 which marked the American's best PGA first round since the 1999 Byron Nelson Classic.

"It was nice to make one like that up the hill to get things going", Woods told Golf Channel after the round.

It was just the fourth time in 17 tournaments in 2018 that Woods opened with a round under par. My body just remembers it.

"I've hit hundreds of millions of putts [with the Cameron]; I've had it since '99", Woods said.

From then on, it was clear Woods was feeling it on a steamy day just outside Philadelphia.

The County Down star followed a seven-footer at the 11th by making two 20-footers in a row at the 12th and 13th for a hat-trick of early birdies.

Fourteen-time major victor Woods jumped out of the gates after teeing off the 10th hole, bagging three birdies in his first four holes before a stunning second shot from 220 metres into the par-5 16th hole. After a disappointing finish on Monday at the Dell Technologies Championship - he played his last five holes in 3 over par - Woods played nine holes at Aronimink on Tuesday, then opted out of the pro-am Wednesday. His only bogey came at the par-3 eighth, by far the most hard pin on the course.

Moments later, McIlroy hit his tee shot at the 165-yard par-3 fifth to within three feet. The sloppy bogey on a birdie hole seemed to be the low point, as Woods fell 1 over for the round and 7 under overall. And it was a different Woods, as the 42-year-old did not have the ease he showed in his opening 8-under 62.

"I've been monkeying around with it back home and in the backyard", Woods said of his decision to go back to his favourite putter. It was the sixth sub-30 score of his career and the first since he shot 28 during the second round at East Lake during the 2007 Tour Championship.
