Rory-Tiger-Donald: Woods birdies

DORAL, Fla. -- Tiger Woods made the first move.

Now can he keep it up?

Woods, who is playing alongside top-ranked Rory McIlroy and world No. 3 Luke Donald, made the first birdie of the group on Thursday when he rolled in a 20-footer on the par-4 11th.

The trio started the day on the back nine at Trump Doral, where all three made par on the par-5 10th.

Woods has won this event six times -- though only one of those was here with two more wins coming on the property before the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship moved here in 2007.

Though Woods has dominated the World Golf Championships with 16 career WGC titles, he hasn't won one since the 2009 Bridgestone Invitational. From 1999-2009, Woods had not gone an entire season without winning at least one World Golf Championships title.

Last year, Woods withdrew during the final round with an Achilles injury. He was 3 over on his round at the time (6 under for the event) and was on the 12th hole. It marked the first time in 12 starts he failed to post a top-10 finish at the Cadillac Championship.
