Tiger Woods showed signs of improvement Friday, following his dismal performance Thursday at Isleworth Country Club. In the second round of the Hero World Challenge, Woods posted a two-under 70, despite a double-bogey on the last hole — which included a(nother) chunked chip.

Woods carded a three-over total at the halfway mark of the tournament that benefits his foundation. Although he trimmed seven strokes from his first round, he remains in last place in the 18-man field.

Tiger Woods is making his competitive return to golf at this week’s Hero World Challenge — which benefits his foundation — at his old stomping grounds, Isleworth Country Club, after missing the cut at the PGA Championship in August. This will be his second attempt to comeback from his nagging back injury this year. But this time he’s ready — and he’s returning fresh with a new swing and swing consultant, and new Nike clubs and a new Nike ball.

Woods also has a new sponsor, the same company that’s backing his tournament — Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest manufacturer of two-wheelers, announced a global sponsorship agreement.

Woods, who spoke to the press (his favorite!) on Tuesday, has a new swing, as well — well, kind of.
