Schauffele, ranked 41st in the FedExCup, is projected to move to sixth with a victory.

"I've been monkeying around with it back home and in the backyard", Woods said of his decision to go back to his favourite putter. A victory at Aronimink might even be enough for Jim Furyk to take the 24-year-old from San Diego as the final captain's pick for the Ryder Cup.

But consecutive bogeys at his 16th and 17th holes put paid to that notion, before he birdied the par-five ninth after hoisting a five-wood second shot to the heart of the green.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy broke new ground when they tied for the first-round lead at the BMW Championship in Pennsylvania on Thursday.

"It's been something I've been struggling with all year and it's been much better the last couple of weeks", he said. McIlroy drained an eight-foot birdie at the 18th, then holed three more putts between eight and nine feet consecutively as he made the turn. It was the only time he had more than a tap-in for par. He pitched to 18 feet, a good shot up a ridge and onto a green that sloped away from him.

Woods hit nothing longer than a 9-iron into the par 4s.

The wide fairways and temperatures in the 90s allowed the golf ball to seemingly fly forever and made for such low scoring that 48 players in the 69-man field broke par.

Jordan Spieth couldn't keep it in play off the tee and didn't get under par until his 15th hole.

Peter Uihlein, who only advanced to the third FedEx Cup playoff event with birdies on his last three holes on the TPC Boston last week, had a 64 to join a group that included FedEx Cup champion Justin Thomas.

The 14-time major victor Woods jumped out of the gates after teeing off the 10th hole, bagging three birdies in his first four holes before a stunning second shot from 242 yards into the par-5 16th hole. Woods also missed par putts of 4, 6 and 8 feet. "I putted well. Basically did everything well and looking forward to getting back out there early in the morning and trying to get it going again".

McIlroy matched him but still left the course feeling a twinge of what might have been, for he actually had a golden opportunity to become the first European to shoot 59 on either of the game's two main circuits. "And I didn't capitalize".
