Woods had an unspectacular round of 71 in his return to Quail Hollow after a six-year absence - mostly due to his balky back - and figured it would keep him and everyone else fairly close to the lead on a course that made it tough for anyone to get separation.

The result: Woods shot 70 or better all four days and finished tied for second place. Phil's T36 finish was disappointing, given all the hype Lefty was bringing with him to Augusta.
