Tiger Woods has been away from the PGA Tour too long to know for certain when a shot is as good as it looks.This was a 6-iron on the par-3 16th hole on the South Course at Torrey Pines, from 188 yards to a slightly elevated green with a pin tucked behind a deep bunker. Finau birdied his opening two holes on the North and finished with a 35-foot birdie putt for a 65 .He needed those three birdies to offset his mistakes, and the sobering part of his return is that Woods didn't make a putt longer than 4 feet. That was on the second hole, when his approach from the bunker landed 6 feet behind the hole and went over the back into light rough.Woods made his other two bogeys from greenside bunkers, both times missing 12-foot putts.He played the par 5s in even par, and didn't give himself any other birdie chances inside 15 feet.Defending champion Jon Rahm, who can reach No. 1 in the world by winning, opened with a 68 on the South. He hit into the water with his second shot on the par-5 18th, but he saved par with a 15-foot putt.
