Tiger Woods got off to an ominous start at the WGC-Mexico Championship, hitting his opening tee shot out of bounds and making double bogey.

But after steadying himself with a couple of pars, Woods birdied the par-4 fourth and fifth holes.

And then made it three in a row with a birdie at the par-5 fifth.

That got him to red numbers for the first time in the event, but Woods would make just one more birdie, at the par-5 15th, before finishing with an even-par 71.
