The online social buzz was very entertaining with golf geeks world wide sharing vids & pics, expressing their allegiance for the great talent and inspiration Tiger Woods has brought to the game.
Tiger moment fave #1
Some huge questions echoed - his fitness, state of mind and hope that he could find that magic swing to attack the pin and silence the non believers.
Overall there were some classic old school Tiger moments, showing pure form with him narrowly missing an eagle on the long 15th resulting in a tap in birdie, tarnished by a few "Silly mistakes" like wrapping it up with two double bogeys on the last three holes.
A welcomed fist pump when he drained his par-saving putt on the 14th.
"It felt good to have that adrenaline surging through the system again."

Woods, once ranked No 1 in the world for 683 weeks is still chasing those four elusive major titles to tie Jack Nicklaus's record of 18.
Recently the striped goat told Charlie Rose that he was still very much chasing more major championship wins.
“Do you believe you’ll get 18 majors?” Rose asked. “To be honest with you, no,” Woods replied. “You don’t? You’ve accepted that?” Rose asked. “I’ve accepted I’m going to get more,” Woods responded.
However the Golf Gods have penned the next stage of Tiger's career, one thing is for certain, his game is very close, he has no injuries looming and a fresh new team of inspo behind him.
This week Woods and Bridgestone made their partnership official with Tiger committed to playing the Bridgestone's Tour B330S ball, not a bad pill at all.
Strap yourself in peeps, as it could well be the return of the Jedi.
