It had been 522 days since Tiger Woods last played on the PGA Tour, but that all changed Thursday at the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open as Woods went out with a four-over 76, saving a disastrous back nine with a birdie on 18.
Torrey Pines has been good to Woods over the years, which makes it the perfect place for the 41-year-old to begin what is likely the last phase of an all-time career. Still, he probably wishes he had a number of shots back from Thursday.
Instead, it's a man who shares his agent who leads at Torrey Pines with a few other big names on his heels. Here is how the top of the leaderboard looks along with how a few other stars performed at Torrey.
Justin Rose (7 under) made two eagles on the easier North Course on Thursday.
Rickie Fowler shot 72 on the easier course Thursday and will have a ton of work to do Friday just to make the cut.
Dustin Johnson (E) was fifth in the field off the tee (per usual), the final hole when he made a birdie alongside partners Woods and Jason Day.
Jason Day (1 over) was fourth in the field in strokes gained tee to green and shot 1 over.
