  • Tiger Woods

The gallery followed his every shot in the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Finau's seven-under 65 on the North course gave him a one-shot lead over fellow Americans Ryan Palmer and Ted Potter Jr.

A victor of 79 PGA Tour events, Woods had an 11-year stretch at this tournament during which he did not finish worse than 10th and had six victories.

Tiger Woods almost marked his return to the PGA Tour with a hole-in-one in the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

It was by far the best shot of the day for Woods, who struggled with his putter and showed frustration on several holes.

"Just a full 6-iron", he said. He hit into the water with his second shot on the par-5 18th, but he saved par with a 15-foot putt.

He was so predictably good that in late January 2008 - the year the US Open was coming to Torrey Pines - caddie John Wood lingered behind the 18th green on the South course and watched as Woods finished off an opening-round 67. He'll have work to do on Friday on the North Course, typically the more forgiving of the two in use over the first two rounds of the tournament. Two-putt par from 38 feet.

Rahm last year became the first player in 26 years to win his first PGA Tour event at Torrey Pines.

At two yards short of 7,800, it is the longest course the pros play outside the Majors with some of the most claustrophobic fairways in the game.

It was the second major miss from close range after a similar effort at the 7th hole though he managed to save par there. Slides birdie putt off right edge. "He's got his speed back, which is awesome to see".

HOLE 14 (par 4): 3-wood 300 yards finds fairway. He turned and swung his iron through the air in frustration.

His forgettable shots included bunkering a wedge after a ideal 319-yard drive on No. 7, finding a greenside bunker after a 318-yard drive on No. 9 and missing the green from 97 yards on the way to a bogey on No. 13, where he lipped out a 4-foot par putt.

It was a typically gorgeous day at Torrey Pines, with hang-gliders floating on the breeze along the seaside holes.

Woods (42) showed obvious signs of rust but he also showed no little power and some of his old flair with the irons, as he nearly aced the 189 yard 16th on the South Course to get back to level par.

"It's hard to make a lot of birdies when you're not giving yourself any looks, and I didn't do that today", Woods said.

Woods showed plenty of frustration on the first five holes when he opened bogey, par, par, par, bogey.

Another drive tugged left and it lands in the fairway bunker. Woods talked about the rough yesterday and how he hadn't hit out of anything except Bermuda since this tournament a year ago, so he was having to re-learn that feel.

This will be only his second PGA Tour event since August 2015.

Tiger Woods brought big crowds back to golf, and he even produced a few big roars. The three-time major victor carded two bogeys, two birdies and a par on the challenging course. On No. 2, he overshot the green and grimaced. Third from under 160 yards comes up short and rolls back to the bottom tier, leaving a tough, uphill birdie putt from 40 feet. The amateurs get out here and they start hitting harder and harder, but that's not the key.

The 79-time victor on the US Tour mixed two birdies on the back side with a sloppy bogey at the par-5 13th.

And he stressed he did not know what to expect after five years of injury problems culminated in an operation to fuse two vertebrae in his lower back.
