Tiger Woods plays a tee shot during the pro-am for the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens Florida

One of the windiest challenges in all of golf, The Honda Classic hasn't played a single round in the last five years with average winds less than 10 miles per hour.

Only 20 players broke par, and just as many were at 76 or worse.

His only bogey came on his ninth hole, the par-five 18th. He had one other bogey against three birdies, and was rarely out of position. Sign up for a Golficity Premium Membership to get full access to our weekly fantasy golf predictions segment and so much more.

Snedeker said he remembered playing in the final group in the third round in 2007 at Torrey Pines while Woods was playing in front of him. "It was a tough day out there for all of us, and even par is a good score". You don't have to hit as many drivers around here, but the approaches are way tougher.

Rory McIlroyIf Fowler goes number one in your snake draft, McIlroy will likely go next. But he's put together enough good rounds in the early going this year to have the confidence to get his name on the leaderboard at one of golf's biggest events in 2018. She said having so many people wearing the burgundy ribbons is unifying, "because I've had even a player ask me where did I get my ribbon and I gave him one". "So it's been great".

PGA champion Justin Thomas and Louis Oosthuizen were among those at 67.

Woods lives only 15 miles from PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, so it always made sense that he would play his hometown event if his body was up to the challenge. "Wind was up. Greens got a little, sort of crusty and firm". He will likely receive no respite from Genesis-type antics - especially from the well-lubed patrons in party areas on PGA National's 17th hole, where several establishments serve adult beverages. He was just like everyone else that day - carts on paths only. He left his shot out of the bunker short into the fringe. Mackenzie Hughes of Canada shot his 67 with a bogey from a bunker on No. 9.

This is Woods' third PGA Tour start of 2018. "That's the way it goes". Distance is not an advantage this week as this course features holes which force players to lay up.

His only bogey came on his ninth hole, the par-five 18th.

He rebounded with a birdie on the next hole before making pars all the way in.

Nine-times European Tour victor Noren said: "This was by far my best putting and chipping round of the season".

It used to be that golf decorum dictated spectators be quiet as a church mouse with PGA players at work.

"I think as long as you know that your game is in good shape and you're happy with all aspects, because again, the margins between winning and losing are so fine".

Woods played with Patton Kizzire, who already has won twice on the PGA Tour season this year. Winner's share: $1,188,000. Television: Thursday-Friday, 2-6 p.m. (Golf Channel); Saturday-Sunday, 1-2:45 p.m. (Golf Channel); 3-6 p.m. (CBS Sports).

"I wouldn't necessarily say I'm in catch-up mode".

"Obviously I'm fused, so it's a little bit different and I'm still learning what that feels like under the gun".
