Tiger Woods Posts Best Round In Three Years At Hero World Challenge
Tiger Woods finished with just 65 strokes in his second round of the Hero World Challenge Friday for his best round of golf in three years.
Woods got off to an incredible start in Nassau on Thursday, posting a score of three under par in the first nine holes. Tiger then stumbled a bit on the back nine and ended his first round of the tournament one stroke over par for the course.
On Friday Woods started well again with three birdies on the front nine and continued his impressive play by posting four more on the back nine. He finished the second round at seven under. Also worth noting, Woods didn’t allow a single bogey on his scorecard. (PHOTOS: Tiger Woods Is Allegedly Dating Another Beautiful Blonde Girl)
“It feels good,” Woods said after finishing his second round of the tournament. “Yesterday I had it going through eight holes and lost it. Today was different.”
The tournament, put on by Tiger’s foundation, marks his return to competitive golf after a year-long hiatus. Woods’ last PGA Tour event was the Wyndham Championship in August of 2015.
Fans have been anxiously awaiting the electric golfer’s return ever since.
He planned to return to competition at the Safeway Open in early October, but withdrew claiming his game was “vulnerable” and not where he needed it to be.
Now, Tiger is back and seems to be playing his best golf in years. And everyone is absolutely freaking out about it.

Some Tiger enthusiasts have come to believe that with Tiger’s romantic life goes his golf game.
Woods has recently been linked to a Dallas-based stylist named Kristin Smith and, for those who chose to believe it, she may have something to do with the golfer getting his swing back.
Either way, it’s good to see Tiger Woods back on the course and playing well.
