Playing alongside Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson, Woods birdied both par 3's on his front nine, going out in 33. 

He bogeyed the first -- his 10th hole -- before birdying the par-5 second and par-4 sixth. He narrowly missed a finishing birdie at nine, ending with a 3-under par 68.

His outing was somewhat overshadowed by Mickelson, who flirted with a 59 before finishing with an 8-under 63.

For Woods, who was injured last week at The Barclay's, didn't show signs of a lingering issue and reportedly looked fine in his practice round Thursday.
