Woods, who jointly held the record with Fred Couples and Gary Player on 23, began the day needing to play five holes to finish round one before swiftly moving into round two.

Previously this year, he had only played 25 holes at a tournament when he withdrew through illness from the second round of the Genesis Invitational in February, so walking 23 in one day was likely to be a challenge.

However, despite his physical exertions, the 48-year-old American showed all his nous to navigate a rollercoaster front nine where he carded three birdies and three bogeys.

With the wind strengthening enough to blow sand out of the bunkers on the back nine, he produced a series of fine par putts and a birdie on the 15th, after dropping a shot at 14, to stay well above the cut line.

“I’m tired. And I’m really really hungry, I could do with some food and some caffeine,” said the 15-time major champion when asked how he felt.

As always, Woods attracted thousands of followers and they were also treated to a sparkling start from Homa who birdied the second and the fourth to join DeChambeau at the top of the leaderboard on seven under.

He briefly led the tournament after DeChambeau bogeyed the fourth and, despite dropping a shot on the 11th, he parred his way home to set the target.
