For the 18th, Woods got himself withing striking distance of an eagle at the par-5 finishing hole; and sure enough, he buried the 35-foot putt, eliciting a patented fist pump from Woods. along with raucous applause from the East Lake gallery.

This felt even better on a dry, tougher East Lake course.

It is heady territory for Woods after his spinal fusion a year ago, making his first appearance in the tour's season-ending championship since 2013.

Justin Rose sits two shots back in second following his 63, while Rickie Fowler (65) and Hideki Matsuyama (64) headline a four-way tie for third at 10 under.

Woods has not won upon his return but his ball-striking and putting were both pure today, with four birdies and the eagle, emphasised by a gorgeous five wood approach to the 18.

The victor of the FedEx Cup receives a $10 million bonus. Bryson DeChambeau, who came into the tournament atop the FedEx Cup standings, shot 71 and is in a tie for 21st.

"The season itself has been fantastic, to be able to have played this well after coming off of what I came off of". Woods has had more dramatic haircuts.

"Four-under through six, unfortunately I just didn't keep it going but if I keep swinging and hitting the ball like that I should be right up there at the end of the week", McIlroy said.

Woods will play in the final group Friday with Fowler, who has seen plenty of him at home in Florida in the months before Woods returned to golf.

While Woods has surprised the greater majority of sports observers in the 17 events he's contested, the 42-year-old naturally was not about to single out 2018 as his most successful.

"We don't play very many places like this where if you have control of your ball, if you have control of your game, you're probably going to have a good chance to win", Thomas said.

The current world No. 8 will next week also celebrate making his Ryder Cup debut and DeChambeau could be partnering Woods in Versailles. In 2017, Justin Thomas capped off an incredible season, one that included five victories - including his first major at the PGA Championship - and a career-best 59 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, with the FedExCup. Finau overcame a pair of early bogeys for his 67. It could be any of those facets of the game, and I just haven't putt it all together at the same time. "I hit it well off the tee, which gave me a lot of kind of short irons into the greens and opportunities".
