The former world No 1 mixed three birdies with a bogey and one double-bogey in breezy conditions in Florida to post a level-par 70, keeping him within four strokes of morning pacesetter Alex Noren.

"I felt like I had good touch, but more importantly, I made a lot of the key short putts for par", Woods said.

Webb Simpson, who held a share of the first-round lead, is a shot back along with Tommy Fleetwood, Russell Henley and Rory Sabbatini.

Winds altered the trajectory of shots in the air and putts for much of the field at the PGA National Golf Club.

Woods counts four Masters titles among his 14 major championships, but he hasn't played at Augusta National since 2015.

It looked as though List was playing a different course when he went out with a bogey-free 32 on the back nine, added a pair of birdies on the front nine and then dropped his only shot when he caught an awkward lie in the bunker on the par-3 seventh.

"The wind's howling out there".

As he did in round one, Woods was forced to resort to numerous shots to get around the Champions Course, successfully hitting shots left to right and right to left, hitting shots high and low. I played well all day. "It was a tough day out there for all of us, and even par is a good score".

"It's hard to make birdies and it's hard to find some".

Pretty, pretty good for a guy playing in his third PGA Tour event of 2018 following a lumbar fusion a year ago and who struggled last week in missing the cut at the Genesis Open. But he drained a 7-footer for par to keep matters on track.

European - Adrian Otaegui birdied his last three holes and carded a 6-under-par 66 to take a one-shot lead at the Qatar Masters in Doha.

"I just missed the rush of competing for a Green Jacket", he said on Wednesday of his injury-enforced absences.

When Woods holed a 25-foot putt at the ninth to move into red numbers at 1 under overall and within three shots of the lead, a roar shook across the Champion Course. He was six shots better over the first two days (138) than the final two (144) at Riviera. Woods hit 8 of 14 fairways and 11 of 18 greens during the second round and needed 28 putts. At the par-five third, he hit his approach shot into a greenside bunker en route to a double bogey but it did not derail his game. A three-putt bogey on the par-4 16th was next, but Tiger rebounded with that birdie on 17, surrounded by water and the track's most hard hole.

Woods rebounded with a birdie on the following hole and closed out his round with five consecutive pars.

"Well, right now, I think I'm four back right now, as of right now".
