Tiger, Rickie top leaderboard after opening round of Tour Championship

Tiger Woods swung with rhythmic precision and wielded a hot putter to tie Rickie Fowler for the first-round lead at the season-ending Tour Championship on Thursday.A week before returning to the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2012, Woods finished in style with an eagle at the par-five 18th to cap a five-under-par 65 at East Lake in Atlanta.He and Fowler led by one stroke from fellow American Gary Woodland and England’s world number one Justin Rose.

FedExCup points leader Bryson DeChambeau battled to a 71 to lie equal 21st in the 30-man field.Woods started the event ranked 20th in the standings after an excellent campaign missing only a victory in his first season back from a spinal fusion.A three-putt bogey at the first was the only blemish as Woods added four birdies before striking a crisp five-wood from 255 yards to the final green.It was just like yesteryear for Woods, who knew he had executed the shot to perfection well before his ball landed in the heart of the green and stopped 27 feet from the hole.
