Tiger Woods began his Hero World Challenge return in smooth par-par fashion. But he quickly dialed it up.
The 41-year-old roasted a drive down the fairway at the par-5 third at Albany Golf Course, and that led to this gorgeous 2-iron from 260 yards – with a full-on “Be good!” yell, too.
Perfect. Woods simply two-putted from there for birdie to move to 1 under.
It appeared, though, that Woods might give that right back after his approach came up short at the par-4 fourth and his chip shot came up short of the green.
But with 15 feet for par from the fringe, Woods rolled it right in and gave a vigorous fist pump.
A birdie and a fist pump! In four holes!
We are still on the front end of this comeback, but oh boy is this promising so far.
