A four-under-par 68 left Woods a shot behind fellow American Jimmy Walker while England's Justin Rose is three under alongside Graeme McDowell.

Woods had an aggravating double bogey on the back nine and then settled down, dropping in a vintage 71-foot birdie putt that momentarily had him in sole possession of the lead.

Aaron Wise and Talor Gooch are locked in second at seven under after firing 65s. With The Masters right around the corner, many golf fans are wondering if Woods will legitimately contend in the first Major of the year.

Bogey-free through 17 holes, McIlroy - using a three-wood - pulled his tee-shot on the 18th and was forced to reload.

Tiger Woods tees off on the 16th hole during the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational golf tournament Thursday in Orlando.

Tiger Woods' recent string of comeback performances has left the golf world in awe.

Woods not only feels supremely confident on the track, but cherishes the time spent with Palmer, who traditionally greeted the tournament victor on the last green in the city Woods formerly called home. "But that comes with the excitement of having him back and seeing him play well, so I thought it was great". The electricity that courses through the crowds when Woods is playing well, he added, "just seems to kind of elevate, and for some reason it just kind of gets me going". "The golf course is playing hard".

Coming off a tie for second at last week's Valspar Championship, Woods has raced into a share of the lead midway through the opening round at Florida's famed Bay Hill course.

And then came the big finish - two birdies on the par 5s, including a bold flop shot from a tight lie over a bunker at No. 6, and the 70-foot putt he was hoping would be close.

"There was no point wasting a few (birdies) when I was heading home (last week)", said Stenson, whose nine birdies are a career best. "The narrative has completely flipped from how you guys ask me questions, and I just wanted to remind you guys that it wasn't that long ago that you were asking a different set of questions and that you need to enjoy it".
