Tiger Woods rebounded from a rough end to the first round with a tremendous second-round performance at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. 

Woods, who ended the first round with two double bogeys on the final three holes, displayed fantastic skill on the green to climb up the leaderboard of the 18-man tournament with a round of 65.

Just like he did on Thursday, Woods started fast on the front nine. The former No. 1 player in the world birdied the first, sixth and ninth holes to make the turn in 33. 

Woods continued to heat up on the course on the back nine, as he made four birdies in a five-hole stretch. But his most impressive hole of the day was the 16th, where he drained a long par putt after two poor shots put him in trouble in the fairway bunker. 

Woods ended the round with seven birdies and no bogeys to put him at six under for the tournament.

He will play two more rounds on Saturday and Sunday in the Bahamas.
