Thousands bordered on a delirium for just about every shot Woods hit, especially when he chipped in for birdie behind the ninth green, holed a 20-foot birdie putt at No. 10 and gave himself birdie chances inside 8 feet on the next two holes.

While Woods has won 79 times, he hasn't been in the winners circle in almost five years-his last win was at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Woods looked sharper as the gallery got louder. After a discussion with an official to confirm there was no penalty he holed out for a par.

Woods ran into something approximating trouble at No. 7, his 16th hole of the day, with his chip shot running 10 to 12 feet past the hole and onto the fringe.

"It feels like it's back to "12 or "13", said Joe LaCava, Woods" caddie since 2011".

"I felt pretty relaxed out there", Conners said.

"I keep getting a little bit better here and there, making these little subtle tweaks", said Woods, who was sidelined for all of 2016 before an abortive comeback bid a year ago.

Signalling a softening of the stance, Dhawale said the AIKS wants to find a feasible solution for the issues faced by the farmers. So far, banks have been permitted to grant loan waiver to 46.34 lakh farm loan accounts, amounting to ₹23,102 crore.

"Close to a third of these guys", Woods said, "I don't even know anymore". Got to go out there and really play well again. "I think it's exciting to have him back for the casual golf fan, but now the true Tiger fans get excited".

"I started smiling, " Snedeker said.

Over 54 remarkable holes here, with expectations starting low and swelling higher, Woods has proven he can still play.

"Another round of 66 like that tomorrow will be great to take to the Arnold Palmer and then a great showing at Bay Hill could get me into the Match-Play and hopefully then onto Augusta", said Knox.

"I was kind of getting a little frustrated. I ust wanted to get another opportunity to play, and fortunately I was able to get that opportunity this week and had a good week so far". Even Snedeker had a huge grin on his face when the ball vanished into the cup.

Only four men beat Woods' score of 67, with Rose's five-under round putting the Englishman in the final group with Conners, who endured a stressful end to his round when his ball moved on the 18th green as he took a practice stroke. You could hear some roars [from Woods' group]. Justin Rose (-8), Brandt Snedeker (-8), Patrick Reed (-6) and Adam Scott (-4) are among the other notable golfers firmly in the mix heading into what should be an entertaining final round.

But Woods will be the main attraction on Sunday.
