Woods opens with 69 at Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods continues his remarkable comeback at the Hero World Challenge

The solid effort, which included an eagle, four birdies and two bogeys, left the former world number one at seven-under 137 in his first tournament in almost 10 months following spinal fusion surgery. He had 12 birdies and three bogeys overall to get to 12 under for the no-cut tournament, three strokes ahead of Jordan Spieth and Tommy Fleetwood.

Much like Tiger Woods' kids, the young and upcoming lot of world golf has only seen the 14-time major victor compete on television or Youtube. Woods had pulled within two with a bounceback birdie on hole 10.

The 14-time major champion's challenge faded on Saturday, though, as he endured an almighty struggle with the wind up on the front nine to slip back, hitting the turn in 40 to drop to three under.

And according to Newy Scruggs, an NBC Sports radio host, Leach is "working on a deal" to become the next head coach at Tennessee . Leach has been at Washington State for six years and is 38-37, but 26-12 the last three seasons, including 19-8 in the Pac-12.

Another birdie at number 11 had him six-under for the day before he three-putted the par-three 12th hole for his first bogey of the round.

He was unable to convert a decent birdie opportunity set up by a brilliant approach from the waste area at the 16th, before producing a good chip to save par at the 17th and then confidently knocking in a testing four-footer to do likewise at the last. "It's going to take time, a lot more practice, a lot more training and more tournaments".

The performance impressed leading coach Denis Pugh. In previous returns, Woods could be seen holding back or showing signs of pain. "The greatest player of his generation has come back at an age when comebacks aren't normal".
