There was some good from Tiger Woods and definitely some bad as the most recognizable golfer on the planet made his return to competitive golf on Thursday.
Woods opened with a 3-over 74 at the Quicken Loans National event, a respectable number that could have been much worse considering the way he started. Tiger had been gone from competitive golf since March 9 because of a surgical procedure he had on his back, and really shocked a lot of golf fans when he announced he would be in the field this week at his own event.
The day started out rough, as Woods made bogeys on his first two holes, and despite a birdie on his fifth hole of the day, it was a 4-over 39 that Tiger went out in.
He was able to bring the score closer to par as his day ended thanks to three birdies over his final six holes, and despite the surprising score next to Tiger's name, it was a pretty decent return and the way he finished only brings hope for Friday's round.
