Tiger Woods is back in action for the first time since he missed the cut at the US Open this week.
The 14-time Major Champion joins Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, an event hosted outside Washington DC. Tiger scored a par 72 on Thursday, a round of 15 pars, two birdies and a double bogey. He jumped back on Friday and fired a 5-under-65 to climb the rankings in competition.
Woods last played the event in 2015 when it was held at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia. He finished 18th. He missed the cut the year before.

Hole 6 – Par 4
Handle it. Tear it up. Swirl it. Tiger has smoked his driver and now feels it after a rough bogey on number 1. He is just logged in. His approach lands on the green short and left, but rolls within 8 feet once again for a third straight birdie. He took the time to read this book and it pays off. Three birdies in a row, two shots from the top, 2 to 6 (7-under for the tournament)
Hole 5 – Par 4
Another iron from the tee and another fairway for TW , His wedge in the green is just like the last hole, a little to the left of the cup, but good in the birdie area. Back to back would be huge for Tiger here. Tiger sank the putt six feet from the right, two in a row, 1-under 5 (6-under for the tournament).
