LOS ANGELES — Seeking an unprecedented 83rd career US PGA Tour victory, Tiger Woods fired a three-under par 69 that left him three off the first-round lead shared by Sebastian Cappelen and Keegan Bradley at Torrey Pines.

At the famed tract north of San Diego, where the 44-year-old American has previously captured eight titles, Woods closed with a five-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole of Torrey Pines’ North Course, with golfers also competing on the harder-playing South Course.

“Overall, I’m pleased to shoot in the 60s. The course was gettable today,” Woods said. “I felt like I hit the ball well.

“I’m very pleased to get something in the red and get over to south tomorrow,” Woods said as quoted by Agence France Press. (IA)
