Patrick Reed, Patrick Cantlay share lead in Bahamas as tournament host Tiger Woods falls 8 shots behind

NASSAU, Bahamas — Tiger Woods' return to tournament competition didn't start nearly as well as his last one ended.

Woods had a chip roll back into the hazard for a triple bogey Thursday, leading to a 1-over 73 that left him eight shots behind world-traveling Patrick Reed and late-entry Patrick Cantlay in the Hero World Challenge.

Reed didn't show any sign of fatigue in his travels from Dubai to Hong Kong to the Bahamas in successive weeks. He birdied three of his last five holes for a 7-under 65. Cantlay, added to the field when Webb Simpson withdrew, birdied five of his last six holes for a 65.

Woods was never under par at any point and was one of just three players in the 18-man field who were over par.
