Tiger Woods had a nice Friday at the Hero World Challenge, carding a 4-under-par 68 to put himself in the mix heading into the weekend.

Woods was electric on the opening side, posting a 5-under 31, which even got the attention of oddsmakers in Vegas.

Despite a subdued back nine, the 41-year-old gave fans plenty to cheer about.

Here are the best moments from his round on Day 2:

Hole No. 1

He jumps right of out the gate, smashing a 335-yard drive into the left portion of the fairway. From there, Woods drops a wedge to five feet, and then brushes home the birdie attempt to move within two of the lead.

Score: (-4)

Hole No. 4

After a par at the par-3 second and a birdie at the par-5 third, Tiger crushes another drive into the middle of the fairway, leaving just a 160-yard approach into the par 4. The 14-time major champ hits a frozen rope right at the flag, leaving an easy birdie putt, which he would make to tie for the lead.

Score: (-6)

Hole No. 9

After bogeying the hole Thursday, Tiger plays the par-5 ninth to absolute perfection. Woods unleashes another bomb off the tee, then launches a 3-wood approach into the stratosphere, the shot finishing 18 feet from the cup. Woods drops the putt for his first eagle since the second round of the 2015 Wyndham Championship, a front-nine 31, and the outright lead.

Hole No. 11

The short game - that was awful on Day 1 - is put to the test at the par-5 11th, when his second shot hits the green but rolls off the putting surface. Tiger executes a lovely little pitch shot for a kick-in birdie, and remains the leader.

Score: (-9)

Score: (-9)

Hole No. 17

Woods' tee shot on the 184-yard par 3 finds the front right edge of the green, but has to navigate the fringe on his second shot. Tiger elects to chip the ball from the putting surface, playing a brilliant shot to three feet, and would save par.

Score: (-8)
