Tiger Woods' PGA showing at the Farmers Insurance Open this past weekend was a mixed bag, but one the former No. 1 golfer in the world said he was "pleased" after completing his first four-round PGA Tour event since August 2015, CBS Sports reported.

Woods finished the tournament with a three-under 285, finishing with an even 72 on Sunday, tying him for 27th overall at the Torrey Pines South course in San Diego, the network noted.

"Very pleased," Woods said of his performance, according to CBS Sports. "After not playing for a couple of years and coming out here on [the PGA] Tour and playing a solid four days. I fought hard for these scores. This was a lot of fight."

How he got to his 285 score proved to be interesting. Woods, known as one of the best long hitters in golf, struggled mightily with his driver, hitting only 17 fairways on the week, nearly half coming on the first day.

ESPN noted the struggle on Twitter.

"It was tough conditions, it was tough scoring," Woods told CBS Sports on Sunday. "I wanted to shoot something around 65. I thought that might be a playoff number. But these guys are ... doing well. I was trying to post early and see what might happen."

Golfweek wrote, though, that Woods short game, "especially his chipping – made up for most of those troubles as he showed plenty of 'Old Tiger' flash throughout the event – especially when he rallied on Friday to make the cut and early Sunday before the elements and some likely fatigue took hold."

Woods is scheduled to play again at the Los Angeles Open from Feb. 15-18, but admitted his main focus is on the Masters in April, according to Golfweek.

"I'm excited to get this one under my belt," Woods said, per Golfweek.

Woods is just eight months removed from one of his most embarrassing incidents in Florida where he was arrested May 29 after he was found passed out on the road in his Mercedes with prescription drugs and marijuana in his system, The Associated Press said.

He ended up pleading guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving in October in a plea deal with Palm Beach County state prosecutors after entering a diversion program, the news service said.
