Tiger Woods is back.

After almost 2 years of on and off injury plagued golf tours, Tiger finally looked somewhat like his old self in the Hero World challenge.

He almost pulled off the win in a tournament that featured some of golf’s biggest names in Rickie Fowler (eventual winner), Justin Rose, Jordan Speith, Dustin Johnson, and Justin Thomas. He led the field after the second round, a round that featured four birdies and an eagle, Tiger was in position to win the challenge. He would eventually been taken over by Fowler in the last round, who shot an incredible 61 to win, but it was major progress for Woods. His four rounds consisted of a 69, 68, 75, and 68 and he placed higher than the #1 player in the world, beating Jordan Speith as he tied for 9th in the 18-player field.

Tiger went into the tournament ranking 1,199th in the world, but after his performance it jumped all the way to 668th. He is obviously not back to his number one world ranking yet, but with him looking to be maybe 50% of what he once was is promising for the world of golf. People who don’t even watch golf know who Tiger Woods is, and with him back within the folds the audience for PGA tours could go way up, making golf potentially a sport to watch.

Tiger may have not won the actual tournament, but a moral victory should be enough for him as he returns from injury.
