NEW PROVIDENCE, Bahamas — Tiger Woods spent Monday morning playing nine holes alongside retired baseball greats Derek Jeter and Tino Martinez.

The careers of Jeter and Martinez are over, but Woods is looking for one last, great chapter to his.

“I hit it good today,” the 14-time major winner and former World No. 1 said.

It has been 15 months since Woods, now No. 898 in the world, last played competitively, and he has endured three back surgeries since March of 2014, but you wouldn’t know it by watching him operate on a windswept morning in paradise. As casual of a setting as it was, Woods displayed power and control off the tee and at times, precision with his irons.

“We’ve played today in a 20-mph plus breeze and it’s quite an unforgiving wind, but the quality of Tiger’s play has been pretty good,” Justin Rose said from the Hero World Challenge, an event that benefits Woods’ foundation and will be the host’s first tournament since the Wyndham Championship in August 2015.
