Many have been skeptical of Woods return to competition at the Hero World Challenge this week seeing as his previous returns after having surgery have been underwhelming to say the least.
On Tuesday, Woods addressed the media and sounded more optimistic than he has in years. Then, he gave he gave his fans something to be optimistic about on Wednesday and made his critics look like a bunch of idiots with one drive.

Woods looked like his old self in the practice round with the big highlight coming from the Par 4 7th hole. The 14-time major championship crushed his tee shot sending it 340 yards onto the green. Oh, and then he sunk a 20-foot putt for eagle to top it off.
