Tiger Woods third-last after making eventful comeback in Bahamas

Tiger Woods is third-last at the Hero World Challenge after he returned with a three-over opening round in his comeback from injury.

Woods has been out of action since withdrawing from the third round of the Masters in April with injury, undergoing surgery on his ankle that ruled him out of the next seven months.

The 15-time major winner endured an up-and-down round on his return in the Bahamas, picking up birdies at the third and fifth but bogeying the fourth and sixth to get through the front nine at par.

The highlight of the round would come at the par-five 11th, sinking a 50-foot putt with his fourth shot before overcoming a bogey at the next to move to one under with a 14th-hole birdie.

But a double bogey on the 15th halted any momentum Woods may have built, before two bogeys in the final three holes left him with a three-over finish.

At the top of the standings, Tony Finau and Brian Harman are sharing the overnight lead at five under, one stroke ahead of third-placed Jordan Spieth and two ahead of the likes of Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Young.

Will Zalatoris endured a torrid first round, as three double bogeys left him with a nine-over finish.
