Alex Noren and Webb Simpson defied hard blustery winds to lead the US PGA Tour's Honda Classic as Tiger Woods said he was "very pleased" with an even-par 70.
Another former University of OR golfer, Aaron Wise, had a 76 and was tied for 123rd.
Both he and Noren finished with five birdies and a bogey to lead a pack of five by one stroke. "I was very pleased".
"I'm trying to get better, more efficient at what I'm doing, " Woods said.
Woods was more accurate off the tee Thursday, hitting 50 percent of the fairways. He often hit 3-wood or iron off the tee, including a 5-iron at the 365-yard first.
He failed to make the cut last week at the Genesis Open in California.
"I played hard today".
Noren, a nine-time victor on the European Tour, who fell to Jason Day in a marathon playoff at Torrey Pines, grabbed the last of his five birdies at his final hole, the par-four ninth to be the first in the clubhouse on 66. That is one shot better than defending champion Rickie Fowler, who carded a pair of birdies and three bogeys in his opening-round 71.

He also suggested that teachers be trained to carry guns. "9/11 happened once, and they fixed everything", he said. She was murdered last week and she was taken from us, shot nine times on the third floor.
"It didn't feel scripted, it felt like it really came from him being honest and saying, 'I'm really sorry that you're going through this, ' and it made me feel awesome!"
The only blunder - outside of a bogey from a bunker on the 16th, and those were bound to happen on a day like this - was on the second-easiest hole on the course. "I'm starting to really get a feel for scoring again and scoring in tournaments, and today was a day that I'm very proud of because I missed the ball in the correct spots".
"I hit some quality tee shots, that's the area I feel that I've been struggling with a bit lately".
Lee won the Vic Open near Melbourne this month and opened her 2018 U.S. LPGA Tour account last week at the Women's Australian Open, finishing fifth.
To that point, his proximity to the hole on Thursday was 28 feet, 11 inches-or more than 11 feet better than in his first two starts of the year at Torrey Pines and Riviera.
The 42-year-old was two under after four holes before a bogey at his seventh hole and a double-bogey at his 12th proved costly.
"I had a good start today, it was better than I expected", said Moriya, who was seventh here past year.
Two-time champion Amy Yang and world No. 2 Sung Hyun Park were among six players at 5 under.
