Woods played in last week's Wells Fargo Championship, but finished 14 shots behind victor Jason Day.

Woods was two-over par when he reached the par-5 ninth hole.

Unfortunately, including the 8-foot missed par putt that followed, there was nothing about Woods' game the rest of the day to smile about.

He struggled to get much going in his first round, finishing with an even-par 72 after bogeying his final hole.

But Woods, a two-time victor at TPC Sawgrass, will tee off in calm morning conditions and is confident of clawing up the leaderboard with 32C forecast for the second round.

Mickelson echoed that sentiment about Woods as he headed toward the locker room, saying: "I think he's on the precipice of playing some of his best golf".

Arsene Wenger's final game in charge of Arsenal ended with a 1-0 victory at Huddersfield in a match decided by his record signing. Harry Kane and Erik Lamela scored twice as Spurs confirmed third place with an astonishing 5-4 win over Leicester at Wembley.

Woods, 42, also spoke of his admiration for Mickelson and particularly his attention when Woods was away for most of the past two years dealing with his nagging back injuries. "There towards the back nine, it started getting a little sparse".

"The worst part is, all I could think of as I was falling in slow motion was, (expletive), don't put your elbows out and snap Phil's driver", LaCava said.

"I said it Sunday at Wells Fargo, I was anxious about energy this week", Mickelson said.

Mickelson and Fowler both hit the ball in the water on the island green at the 17th hole, while Woods barely avoided that fate after hitting the ball to back of the green.

The same threesome will be back for a Friday morning encore, when Woods expects them to strike some better notes.

Chelsea miss out on Champions League
Michy Batshuayi has taken to twitter to vent his frustration at Chelsea's total capitulation away to Newcastle United . The defeat means Chelsea ended in fifth and could only secure a Europa League ticket.

Six players lead at TPC Sawgrass after round one on six under with world No 1 Dustin Johnson among them. "I feel like I'm putting well, I'm just never inside that range which I should be with the irons I'm having".

Woods finished with five straight pars to get in at one-under 143 for the week, a total that's likely to make the cut on the number. "So I tried to kind of roll out and go real slow".

"I'm 15 under through two days here, which is a lot lower than I ever expected it to be", Simpson said. Maybe Friday will make up for it, but it appears after 18 holes of play that the best show we're going to see this week came at the microphones before the event even started.

"Boy it was nice to turn the round completely around there at 9", mused Woods after the round.

"Tomorrow they will be out early, I'm sure, and they will be into it and it will be fun for Phil and Rickie and myself", Woods said.
