GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Tiger Woods' first round at the Wyndham Championship was his best in two years.

Woods shot a 6-under 64 on Thursday for his lowest score on the PGA Tour since a 61 in the second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2013.

He set the tone by holing a 54-foot chip shot on his first hole, the par-4 10th, for the first of his seven birdies.

Woods arrived at Sedgefield Country Club insisting he was playing better than his recent results might indicate.

He had missed the cut in three straight majors and had not finished better than a tie for 17th at The Masters. He's at No. 187 on the FedEx Cup points list and probably needs a win to earn a playoff spot.
