MELBOURNE, Australia -- Tiger Woods opened the Australian Masters with a 6-under 66, putting him atop the leaderboard in his first appearance Down Under in 11 years.

Woods surged into the lead by nearly driving the 294-yard sixth green, the start of three straight birdies. He had a birdie putt on every hole until hitting into the bushes on his final hole, pitching out and making his lone bogey.

The gallery stood three-deep behind both sides of every fairway, and marshals allowed them to encircle the front of every green. Woods only sees a crowd this big at the major championship. He gave them what they came to see.

Branden Grace of South Africa was 6-under with three holes to play.
