Gary Woodland and fellow American Patrick Reed share the lead after the first round of the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.
The pair managed six-under rounds of 66 as Tiger Woods was one of those to struggle in windy conditions.
The 15-time Major champion finished with a bogey and double bogey to slip to par level for his opening round.
England & # 39; s Justin Rose is one of the four players three shots of the lead and one behind the second-placed Chez Reavie.
American duo Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler, plus the Swedish Henrik Stenson, joined Rose in three.
"I didn't put it right today," Woods said after his round. "My short game was great, I drilled it well, just made some bad iron shots that cost me a few shots."
Woods is host to the 18-man field at the event being held for the benefit of his charity. He admitted that he would also seize the opportunity to refine his American team before the presidential cup meeting next week with the international team.

"We have some things to go through with the boys, a few ideas," Woods said . "We want to have a clear picture of what we want to do down there, because once we get there, things roll pretty fast."
