Tommy Fleetwood leads by a shot
The recent Race to Dubai Champion Tommy Fleetwood fired a bogey-free six-under 66 for the day consisting six birdies to take a shot lead over Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar. Fleetwood is playing his first Hero World Challenge event and looks to finish this one even stronger as this is something special where he plans to get married on upcoming Tuesday.
Tiger Woods huge comeback
Tiger Woods comeback was the main focus of the event as it was anticipated that his days are over and seeing him play again will be tough, but Tiger came and came too strong with a round of three-under 69 for a share of the eighth spot with Francesco Molinari, Charley Hoffman, and Justin Thomas.
Woods posted five birdies and two bogeys in his round and it took him only two holes to post his first birdie after a 301 days wait, many still contemplate that his short game needs some work but as we know Tiger that will be overcome by him in a short period of time. What do you think where will he finish the event?
Tiger is paired with Henrik Stenson for tomorrow’s round, Stenson is currently T-12th with Kevin Kisner at two-under 70.

Following the leader, Fleetwood by a shot are Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler at five-under 67, where Kuchar posted a bogey-free round, Fowler fired seven birdies, five of them came in front nine, and two bogeys in his round.
Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson are T-4th at four-under 68, where DJ went bogey-free with four bogeys in his round coming on first nine holes, and Spieth responded with six birdies and two bogeys to finish his round.
Hideki Matsuyama, The Defending Champion
Matsuyama is defending his title here and currently stands at T-14th with US Open Champion Brooks Koepka at one-under 71. Matsuyama posted four birdies and a bogey in his round, his four birdies came back to back on holes 14th, 15th, 16th and the 17th.
He surely is five-shots back from the leader and a lot of work needs to be done and this young man is capable enough to do that as he has done in the past.
Let us know what do you feel about the Tiger’s return.
