Tiger Woods was on the verge of coming unglued at Amen Corner midway through his return to Augusta National Golf Club Thursday, but the four-time Masters champion persevered and saved his tournament hopes with a solid round of 73. Woods simply wasn’t very sharp in his opening round .

Tiger Woods has shot in the 60s in the first round of the Masters only once, en route to a tie for fourth in 2010 when he returned to golf after a scandal-laden finish to 2009.

That run of rounds in the 70s continued Thursday, as Woods shot a 1-over 73 that could've been much worse.

It could've been better, too.

“It was interesting,” Woods said on the ESPN broadcast after his round. “It was up and down for me today.”

Woods started the day pulling his opening tee shot left on the par-4 first, but scrambled for a par after a long putt from the front of the green.

“Not exactly the best start,” Woods said with his trademark smile.

Woods’ impressive comeback from a fourth back surgery last April has casual golf fans, gamblers, six-time major champion Faldo, and legendary sports broadcaster Jim Nantz giddy with anticipation of Tiger’s start at next week’s Masters.

Although Woods wasn't totally thrilled with his play Thursday at Firestone's South Course, he's right in this after an opening 4-under 66. Tiger Woods is in great position after roller coaster round at The - ftw.usatoday.com.

He found the greenside bunker on the par-5 second, but missed a 13-foot birdie putt and had to settle for par there, too.

That was a common thread throughout the day, as Woods also missed birdie putts from seven feet (No. 6), 12 feet (No. 13), and 16 feet (No. 17). It was a scrambling kind of day for Woods otherwise, as his shot-tracker looked more like a paint-by-numbers of a child who hadn't learned to count yet. The lines were all over the place.

Woods hit it into the patrons on the par-4 11th, en route to a bogey. He knocked it into the water on the par-3 12th - en route to another bogey - before hitting it into the trees on the par-5 13th off the tee, along with the trees on the par-5 15th.

Woods played the four par 5’s at even par Thursday, something that will have to be rectified if he hopes to contend. Early co-leader Henrik Stenson birdied both par 5’s on the second nine, while co-leader Charley Hoffman birdied three of the four par 5’s.

Reuters. Shared. Updated 02/12/2016 12:23 CET. Tiger Woods's first competitive round in nearly 16 months provided more questions than answers as he teased golf fans with a performance that fluctuated between brilliant and dreadful at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas on Thursday.

“I had some opportunities to make some birdies and I didn’t do it,” said Woods. “I played the par fives very sloppily today, and that was the difference in the round. If I played those halfway decent, I would have been under par for the day.”

The greens were much quicker Thursday than during the three practice rounds, according to 2003 Masters winner Mike Weir, and the wind was swirling around in an unpredictable way.

“Golf is a game of inches, and no more than here,” Mike Weir said on the television broadcast after his round, alluding to how the greens were rolling “really fast,” and even if he missed his landing area by a few feet, he’d end up a few yards away.

Woods birdied the par-4 14th, which played as the hardest hole on the course through most of Thursday, along with the par-3 16th, draining a 22-footer. He started his day with back-to- back pars before making a birdie on the short par-4 3rd, having him make an early appearance on the leaderboard.

That was the lone time Woods was under par on the day (he bogeyed the next two holes).

Woods has been over par after the first round of one of his Masters victory, in 2005 (he shot 2-over- par 74). He also shot 73 in his first round twice before, in 2015 (he finished T17) and in 2007, when he finished runner-up.

The four-time Masters winner said he felt good, health-wise. He has a five-shot deficit to make up Friday, but he's confident in what’s to come.

“I definitely didn’t score as well as I played, I hit the ball better than my score indicated,” Woods said on the ESPN broadcast. “This is a very bunched leaderboard and by the end of the week I think it’s going to be very crowded.”

Woods will be once again paired with Australian Marc Leishman and Englishman Tommy Fleetwood for Friday’s second round, teeing off at 1:27 p.m. ET.

The probability of a snow tiger being born is about 1 in 100,000, and five cubs at once is even more remarkable.  But that's exactly what happened when Bing Bing, a mother snow tiger at the Ji’nan Wild World zoo in eastern China, gave birth last week to quintuplet cubs.“The tiger cubs are all in good shape,” said Li Yang, who runs the breeding program at the zoo. "After observation, we’ve decided to let the mother take care of them as it is good [for] the cubs in terms of behavior, individuality and health conditions.
