Tiger shoots seven-under 65 in Nassau

Playing alone in the second round of the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods has gone on a birdie blitz to announce that he can indeed go low again.

Woods, who started hot in round one on Thursday only to fade out and shoot one over, calmed the nerves on Friday to look like the Tiger of old.

The 40-year-old, 14-time major champion making seven birdies and zero bogeys in a round that seemed to announce 'I'm back'.

Birdies at the first, sixth and ninth got Woods going, indeed he nearly stuffed the wedge approach on the ninth in the hole for an eagle three, but it was the middle of the back nine where he made his move.

He birdied 11 then for the second consecutive day on the par-three 12th he nearly holed out from the tee, going close to a hole-in-one before again making birdie on 14 and 15

While the birdies were great it was the clutch par saves, such a feature of his game during the time he dominated the sport, that were most impressive.

He made huge par saves on the par-three eighth and drained a 20-footer on 16 for par.

"It feels good," Woods said.

"I had it going, today was different (than yesterday), I turned those two par-fives (nine and 11) into under par today, and that's four shots right there and I kept the momentum going and moved myself up the board.

"Then those are big par putts to make and I made a couple of them today. The one on 16... this was big, to not drop a shot there."

Woods is in the clubhouse at six-under, six shots behind breakaway leader J.B Holmes.
