There was a fine approach to five feet on the first, a two-putt birdie from 30 feet on the par-five third and a brilliant second shot to four feet on the third.

"I proved that the surgery was successful", Woods told the Golf Channel in a post-round interview.

While he staggered a bit coming home, he finished the day with a 4-under-par 68 and, coupled with his opening-round 69, is at 7 under through 36 holes and in a tie for fifth.

The solid second-round effort, which included an eagle and four birdies, left the former world number one tied for fifth place at seven-under 137 in his first tournament in almost 10 months following spinal fusion surgery.

"I'm just getting back".

Four hours of a solid round of golf lowered Woods' odds of winning the Masters from 66-1 to 33-1, according to Vegas Insider. After a massive drive on the ninth, Woods rifled a 3-wood from 275 yards to 18 feet and canned the putt for eagle.

"I had a hard time all day with my speed on these greens", Woods said. "They were dry, they were rolling out and I air-mailed a few of them well past the hole but I really did struggle with my speed". "A lot more practice, a lot more training and more tournaments".

Spieth had seven birdies and two bogeys during Friday's round.

"I had a hard time all day with my speed on the greens - they seemed to be about a foot faster". "We've got two more days and I think it's supposed to blow a little harder tomorrow". He outdrove his playing partner, this year's PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas, more often than not, capped an 18-yard putt to save par on No. 9 with a fist pump and finished just three shots out of the lead. Rose had five birdies against one bogey. Patrick Reed and Kevin Chappell are T-10 at 6 under. So to see Tiger go out and play well doesn't surprise me.
