Jordan Spieth did his best to steal some of the limelight from Tiger Woods as he produced two superb chip-ins for an eagle and a birdie on day one of the Hero World Challenge.
Spieth had earlier endured an erratic opening few holes as he double-bogeyed the second, birdied the next two but then dropped another shot at the fifth, and he was still one over for the round when he arrived at the par-five ninth.
But the two-time major champion showed why he was renowned for having one of the best short-games in the world as he floated a bold pitch over the majority of the long green, and his ball gripped on cue and dropped into the cup for a welcome eagle.
Spieth erred again at the dangerous par-three 12th, which ranked as the toughest hole on the Albany layout on the opening day, but he atoned with another perfectly-judged chip from just off the next green.
He went on to birdie three of the final four holes to complete a rollercoaster 67 which left him just three shots off the lead at the end of the day.
