Woods drives green, makes eagle during pro-am

News

Tiger Woods completed 18 holes during Wednesday’s pro-am at the Hero World Challenge, and there were some very encouraging signs from the former great.

By all accounts, Woods looks more than ready for Thursday’s first round in the Bahamas, with his swing in particular looking better than it has in a long time.

The highlight of Tiger’s final tune-up came at the par-4 seventh, where he made a 15-footer for eagle after driving the green.

The PGA Tour’s Charlie Kane also captured some great footage of Tiger walking after a perfect 330+ yard drive later in his round.

Woods added another birdie at the 14th, although it wasn’t all smooth sailing.

The PGA Tour also posted video of his first four holes, and he looked shaky on his two longer putts:

The overall signs are very positive, however – particularly considering that only six months ago many thought Woods would never play at the highest level again.

He will finally tee it up for real on Thursday at 12:05 local time alongside Justin Thomas.
