Tiger Woods using new Taylor Made putter for Round 1 of Quicken Loans National Keyur Khamar PGA TOUR

Tiger Woods roared into contention for his first victory since 2013, matching the best round of his injury comeback with a five-under par 65 on Friday at the US PGA Quicken Loans National.

Woods, who won the 2009 and 2012 Nationals when the event was played at nearby Congressional Country Club, vows he is committed to the putter change.

Woods tapped in for birdie at the par-5 second, then sank a 25-foot birdie putt at the par-3 third.

"I think I'm not that far away from putting it together where I can win".

Landry shot his 63 in the morning when the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm was soft, though still punishing with its thick rough. Spaun did his work in the windier afternoon, even if no one noticed.

"Not too far back, 3-under is in 10th", Woods said.

"I played really solid today apparently", said Spaun. They played so fast, actually. "I hit a lot of good putts". It's going to be hot; it's going to be long grinds. "I just saw his pink shirt way in the distance". "Tried a bunch of different shapes and sizes", Woods said. "We're going to try to put two more rounds in the 60s, see where it puts us for Sunday".

Woods blasted out from bunkers at the eighth and ninth‚ saving pars with tense five-foot putts. "I didn't really have anything going through the middle part of the round, just hanging in there, hanging in there". Neeraj and Seema were exempted from the just-concluded National Interstate Athletics Championships in Guwahati but they have been asked to undergo a confirmatory trial on August 15. "They'll go in eventually".

The 14-time major champion, who is playing the tournament he hosts for the first time since 2015, has again put himself in danger of missing the 36-hole cut.

Rickie Fowler, who has a corporate deal with Quicken Loans, is the only player from the top 10 competing this week.

On Thursday, Woods made 48 feet of putts.

Cristiano Ronaldo should play on for Portugal, coach urges after exit
Portugal lost 2-1, after briefly equalising in the second half, however, it wasn't their day and they're now headed home. Cristiano Ronaldo says it is "not the time" to discuss his worldwide future after Portugal's World Cup exit.

Francesco Molinari and Billy Horschel are T-4 at 8 under, Zac Blair is alone in sixth at 7 under and Kevin Streelman, C.T. Pan, John Huh and Marc Leishman are T-7 and three shots off the lead.

His fourth shot ended 35 feet from the pin just off the green, and his putt came up four feet short, yielding a double bogey.

"It was a bonus", Woods said. "Right now three under is in the 10th spot, and so just have a few good holes early on the front nine [in the second round], or the back nine, which will be my front nine, then all of a sudden you're back in the game".

"There's not a lot of low scores out there".

Canada's Brooke Henderson, the 2016 KPMG victor and runner-up past year, was a stroke back with Jessica Korda, Jaye Marie Green and Brittany Altomore.

Hossler wasn't flawless, with two bogeys and six birdies on the card, but it was good enough for another share of the lead and another chance at a breakthrough weekend on Tour.

"I felt great yesterday, " Woods said.

Woods, 42, signaled he would not attack the course recklessly over the weekend, not that he ever did in his prime either.

Beau Hossler is 23 years old and still looking for his first professional victory.

Woods has been at least six shots behind - and no better than a tie for 29th - after the opening round of his last six tournaments dating to the Masters.
