How to watch Tiger Woods at the Tour Championship on Friday

Tiger Woods' Round 1 highlights from TOUR Championship 2018

After three-putting the first hole for a bogey, Woods recovered to birdie the fifth and sixth and picked up further shots on the 12th and 14th before thrilling the large crowds with his grandstand finish. Woods then drained his eagle on No. 18 to grab a share of the tournament lead.

It's a long way to go for Woods and the rest of the field, but this is as good a start as one could expect.

Former world number one Woods has not claimed a tournament since 2013, though the 42-year-old has twice been a runner-up this season - most recently at the US PGA Championship.

There were 10 players in the 30-player field who shot over par in the first round, including BMW Championship victor Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson, a captain's pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team next week.

"I didn't really mis-hit a single shot and I felt I had a lot of control".

"Four-under through six, unfortunately I just didn't keep it going but if I keep swinging and hitting the ball like that I should be right up there at the end of the week", McIlroy said.

Rose, Finau, Thomas, Dustin Johnson and points leader Bryson DeChambeau know that victory at East Lake will guarantee them the overall title regardless of other results, with Johnson playing his last four holes in four under to shoot 69, while DeChambeau struggled to a 71. He started the season in January after a fourth back surgery that limited him to only 16 PGA Tour events in the previous four seasons.

The pair are one ahead of Gary Woodland and Justin Rose with Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Tony Finau T5 at 3-under.

"The biggest win for him is just staying healthy and being out here all year consistently", Fowler said. "Definitely happy for him". It's great to have him as part of the [U.S. Ryder Cup] team next week.

"I've accomplished that. Now I want to get the "W" [win] and then head into next week in the Ryder Cup".

The duo was grouped for the opening two rounds of this year's Masters and also for the first two days of the recent Northern Trust in New Jersey. Houses along the side streets outside East Lake, and even one funeral home, offered parking and their yards were packed.

Rose is coming off a playoff loss at the BMW Championship last week, and as the No. 2 seed in the FedEx Cup is in the best spot to capture the $10 million prize.

"My objective this year was to win a golf tournament and I have given myself plenty of looks at doing it".
