WINDERMERE, Fla. (ESPN)— He witnessed his playing competitor beat him by seven strokes, didn’t move up the leaderboard and faces another first-off tee time at his annual charity tournament.

But Tiger Woods found plenty else to be pleased about Friday at Isleworth, despite his standing in the Hero World Challenge.

Playing just his second competitive round in four months following another injury setback, Woods improved on his opening-round 77 to shoot 2-under-par 70. The round included his first eagle of 2014 but was tempered by a double-bogey at the final hole.

“I really didn’t feel that much different than yesterday,” said Woods, who battled a cough and a 100-degree fever throughout the round. “I hit probably two less worse shots than I did yesterday, but I struck the ball solid yesterday and I did again today. I think obviously I hit them a little bit closer today and made a couple putts.”

Woods’ front-nine score of 36 was 5 better compared to his opening round but looked poor when compared to Patrick Reed, who made five birdies and an eagle to shoot 29 — seven strokes better.
