Tiger Woods has a share of the lead after the opening day of the WGC Cadillac Championship in Florida.

The American hit nine birdies and three bogeys at the Blue Monster course to give him a six-under-par round of 66.

Woods is joined at the top of the leaderboard by Spain's Sergio Garcia, Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell, Sweden's Freddie Jacobson and fellow countryman Bubba Watson.

Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan are among four others who are a shot further back, while English pair Ian Poulter and Justin Rose are on four-under.

Following his walk-off at last week's Honda Classic, Rory McIlroy shot a double bogey on the first hole before ending the day with a one-over round of 73.
