As noted at Tiger Woods‘ official website that day, the former world’s number one golfer shot a 2-under-par 68 during the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational opening round in Akron, Ohio.

Woods, 35, is now trailing Adam Scott by six strokes in the elite 78-player golf tournament, after missing earlier events including his own AT&T National and the 2011 British Open held last month.

“It felt good. I had no qualms. I hit the ball really flush today. Actually, the hardest part was controlling my distances.” Tiger Woods said on the report.

“I hadn’t been out in this environment for a while, and the way I was hitting it — so flush — the ball was just going.” Woods added, who last played for the The Players Championship last May.

During that tournament, Woods withdrew after nine holes and his world rank later fell to #15, his lowest since early 1997. He decided to work on his recovery and did not play since then as advised by his doctors.

Meanwhile, Woods started the opening round with nine-consecutive pars, who recently announced that he will be playing at the 2011 Australian Open this coming November.
