Tiger Woods takes time to greet fans at Wells Fargo Championship

All in all, it was an even-par 71 that leaves him just four shots back of the first-round leaders. "On the back nine, I was striping it off the tee and with the irons". He is tied for 34th with Masters champion Patrick Reed, who recovered from a double bogey on No. 17 with a rare birdie on the closing of the "Green Mile" to get back to even.

Woods played Quail Hollow Club alongside fellow major winners and Nike-emblazoned athletes Brooks Koepka and Patrick Reed.

Woods will use a new set of irons this week at Quail Hollow after failing to produce any magic with his old set at Augusta.

"I felt I hit it well enough off the tee to do some things, but I hit my irons bad for the week", he said after his final round at Augusta National.

"The way this golf course is set up and the way it's playing right now, the guys are going to be stacked", Woods said. "I just struggled with the speed of the greens".

Woods also took time this week to pick the brains of Justin Thomas, who won the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

But while Woods' score may have been OK, it wasn't something he felt satisfied with.

Wells Fargo hosted Hashmi, the essay contest's grand prize victor who won the opportunity to play with the PGA TOUR player of his choice - Tiger Woods. Why not come through at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina? On both occasions, he missed the cut.

On the dogleg right 16th, which played as the most hard hole on the course, he hit a solid draw to leave himself about 15 feet for birdie.

And then he never featured at Augusta National.

Tiger Woods has revealed a new set of TaylorMade irons that could be in the bag for this weeks Wells Fargo Championship.

Despite only hitting 6 of 14 fairways, Woods gained more than a stroke on the field off the tee thanks to a driving average of 329.4 yards. "I have a couple of putts I missed that I usually make - at 14, at 16 - so I make those and I'm 2, 3 under par without really doing much".

"So far so good, and I am looking forward to continuing that process with the team".

Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler all are playing for the first time since the Masters.

Woods is coming off a three-week break, his longest since he returned to the PGA Tour in January, and it was a welcome respite.

"Some of these holes have become a lot more stout, the bunkers seem to be more in play and the greens are new and a lot more springy". Since Woods won the event in 2007, the course has undergone significant changes.
