This time, at least, Tiger Woods and his sore back held up through 18 holes of golf.

Less than a week after withdrawing from the Honda Classic, Woods finished a storm-delayed first round at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, in Doral, Fla., on Friday morning.

There were no outward signs of pain in his play except on the leaderboard, where he stood at 4-over 76.

Patrick Reed shot a 4-under 68 to hold the early lead. Jason Dufner, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Hunter Mahan headlined a cluster of golfers not far behind.

After the suspended first round in Florida, Woods said he was feeling fit.

"Warmup was good and I felt good all day even through the delay," he said on Thursday afternoon.

He and the rest of the field were scheduled to begin second-round play shortly after 8 a.m. PST.
