WATCH: Vintage Tiger - Woods rolls in 20-foot eagle after driving green

Updated: 

The golfing world is abuzz ahead of Tiger Woods' latest comeback at the Hero World Challenge, and the excitement levels are sure to keep rising after some vintage play in Wednesday's Pro-Am.

Woods' back problems over recent years have been well documented, but the 14-time major champion is returning to the PGA Tour after a fourth surgery last April.

There are bound to be fears that the fearsome former world number one is heading for another false dawn after several injury comebacks.

But there is hope that the Woods of old can once again be a major player in the world of golf after a throwback to the glory days in the Bahamas.

Lining up at the 340-yard par-four seventh, Woods drove the green and then nonchalantly rolled in a 20-yard putt for eagle.

Woods also made a couple of birdies to go with that eagle through his front nine, and Tiger fans will hope for more of the same when he tees off alongside Justin Thomas on Thursday.
