Woods, who also picked up a new endorsement deal with Fuse, finished with his first bogey-free round (at 4-under 68, tied for eighth) in nine months. Jarrod Lyle had a 7-under 65 for a one-shot lead over Dustin Johnson and Nick Watney in the Presidents Cup tuneup at The Lakes in Sydney.

“I hit it really good today,” said Woods, who has spent much of the year injured and reworking his game. “That was exactly how I've been hitting it at home. That's good. I was able to take it to the golf course, under these [windy] conditions, and hit all the shots. I missed a couple of greens here and there, but I missed them in the right spots.”

With that, he was outta there, tweeting: “when u run out of balls u run out of balls. yes, I shook my player’s partners hands & signed my card w/rules official.”

Trevor Herden, Golf Australia’s director of tournaments, said Daly had other options than stalking off.

“If you run out of golf balls, and you are acting in a professional manner, you will call a rules official and we will get the type of ball he is playing with and replenish his stock,” Herden said. “We can do that. For him to treat it as ’that’s it’ and ’see you later’, that’s not good enough.”
