Woods off to strong start in Arnold Palmer Invitational
Tiger Woods got off to a strong start to take an early share of the lead in the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Thursday.
After finishing runner-up to Paul Casey at the Valspar Championship last week, Woods maintained his impressive form with a three-under 33 on his opening nine at Bay Hill Golf Club,
Woods started his first round on the back nine and birdied two of his first four holes.
The 14-time major champion added another birdie on the par-five 16th, and made it through his first nine holes without a bogey.
