After fourth back surgery, Tiger Woods impressive in return to golf

Tiger Woods looked a lot better in his return to golf than he did when he left.

Woods, who last competed in the tournament in 2015, won in 2009 and 2012.

After recovering from back surgery, Woods returned to competitive golf in November and has competed in six events with the PGA Tour. His best finish has been at the Valspar Championship in Florida, where he tied for second.
