SYDNEY — Tiger Woods shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday night in the Australian Open, leaving him three shots behind first-round leader Jarrod Lyle.

Following lip-out attempts for birdie on three of his first five holes, Woods made the turn in 1-under 34 and birdied the 10th, 11th and 13th holes.

Woods' putt from 10 feet curled around the first hole, and his 18-footer on the fourth did the same. On the fifth, his ball did a complete horseshoe, and Woods, trying to end a two-year victory drought, looked exasperated as he tapped in for par.

Woods, preparing for the Presidents Cup next week at Royal Melbourne, is attempting to end a two-year winless streak. His last victory was at the Australian Masters in Melbourne in November 2009.

Lyle shot 65 in a morning group.
