Tiger Woods (USA), who returned to the field 7 months after undergoing ankle surgery, showed that his performance has not yet recovered.

Woods hit 3 over par 74 in the first round of the Hero World Challenge held at the Albany Golf Course (par 72) in New Providence, Bahamas on the 1st (Korean time).

Woods, who shot 5-under-par 67 and was 8 strokes behind Brian Harmon and Tony Finau (both of the U.S.), who were tied for the lead, ranked 18th out of 20 participating players.

I caught 4 birdies, but there were 5 bogeys and 1 double bogey.

He hit a long shot with a maximum distance of 335 yards and an average of 313.4 yards, but his shots were generally dull.

The fairway landing rate was only 46.2% and the green was missed 8 times.

Of the four birdies, only one was made right on the hole.

There was a sudden shakeup at the end.

In the 15th hole (par 5), the tee shot ball went into a bush, but instead of unplaying it, I tried to force it out and lost 2 strokes with 5-on and 2 putts. In the 16th hole (par 4), the third shot I hit from outside the green was hit hard. I wrote down the examples.

In the 17th hole (par 3), I lost one more stroke with a 3 putt from a distance of 14m.

Woods, who hit 4 over par in 3 holes, was unable to capitalize on his birdie opportunity in the final 18th hole (par 4).

However, Woods did not seem to have much difficulty walking the 18 holes.

His gait seemed a little uncomfortable, and he often shook his legs to loosen them up, but his swing and gait were fine.

Jordan Spieth (USA) ranked 3rd with a 4-under par 68, followed by world No. 1 Scotty Scheffler (USA), Colin Morikawa, and Cameron Young (USA) with 3 under par 69 strokes.

Viktor Hovland (Norway), who is aiming for a consecutive win in this tournament, finished the first day in 16th place with a 1-over-par 73.

Will Jarratoris (USA), who, like Woods, competed for the first time in seven months after undergoing back surgery, recorded a score of 9 over par 81, showing that he has not yet recovered his playing ability. 스포츠토토맨
