Tiger Woods carded his best score in two years with an impressive 64 at the Wyndham Championship. The 14-time major winner finished the opening round at Sedgefield two shots off the lead at six under par, making seven birdies and just one bogey.

It was his best round since shooting a 51 at the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. Woods missed the cut at last week's USPGA Championship, labelling his putting on the opening day as the worst he has played in a very long time.

But he was left pleased with both his putting and his iron play at Wyndham. "They were both solid today, it was nice," he said.

"I was telling [caddie Joe LaCava] it's finally nice to get something out of a round, a round that could have been two to four under par, it's finally six."

Woods is currently ranked 286th in the world having missed the weekend cut in the last three majors of the 2015 and is enduring the worst-ever season since his professional career began in 1996.
