Tiger Woods made his first appearance of 2019 at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines on Thursday afternoon. The 43-year-old former world No. 1 said he felt run down by the end of the 2018 season and planned to be more selective this year.
Woods got back to his winning ways near the end of 2018 when he took home the Tour Championship trophy with a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel. The win gave Woods his 80th PGA tour victory as he finished second in FedEx Cup standings.
With a successful 2018 behind him, Woods got off to a solid start to the 2019 campaign with a two-under, 70 at Torrey Pines on Thursday afternoon.
Woods finished the round with a birdie on No. 18 to get to two-under on the day. He carded three bogeys and five birdies on the afternoon, shooting 35 on the front and back nine.
It's a solid start to the 2019 season for Tiger as he looks to build on a good 2018. Despite his success on the course this afternoon, he still trails leader Jon Rahm by eight strokes after Rahm dominated the course with seven birdies and two eagles.
Woods, and his partners Xander Schauffele and Tony Finau, will be back on the course Friday afternoon at 12:30 p.m. ET.
