Breezy conditions made sub-par rounds hard at the Albany course with overnight leader Hoffman one of the few to deliver, surging to a five-stroke lead after a birdie at 18 for a two-under 70 and a 202 total.

Global sporting icon Woods led for a short time during the second round and offered a demonstration of why he become a golfing great with a huge drive onto the green before holing a tricky putt for an eagle at the 350-yard par-four eighth in his final round on Sunday. The two have played several rounds near their homes in South Florida, but this was the first time they had ever played in a tournament.

"The shot that really threw me for a loop was the shot at three", Woods said.

Woods, playing for the first time since February, was in trouble from the opening hole, hitting his tee shot at the par-four first into the sand bordering the fairway.

"I talked to Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler last week, they have played some golf with Tiger and they were both very impressed with him and how far he was hitting it". I think we have to crawl before we can walk and walk before we can run.

"Then I thought he would play but never win again".

NY's Metropolitan Opera to investigate James Levine after sex abuse claim
Details of the police report were first reported Saturday on the website of the New York Post . He was music director of the Metropolitan Opera for 40 years and now is director emeritus.

Perhaps the biggest positives were the way Woods drove the ball and his ability to make a few clutch putts.

"I really didn't feel I was that far off".

"I hit the most handsome three wood that went 300 yards in the wind".

"The big thing though coming off a long break like Tiger has had is the feel".

Woods, 41, is ranked 1,199th in the world as he is making just his 20th worldwide start since the first of his four back surgeries in 2014.

Jordan Spieth (72) and England's Justin Rose (71) were tied for second at nine-under 207, one stroke ahead of Italy's Francesco Molinari (71).
