Social media could not contain itself. This time it was Donovan Bailey, the former 100m world champion, and Niall Horan, the One Direction crooner, expressing their feverish enthusiasm.
Four hours of a solid round of golf lowered Woods' odds of winning the Masters from 66-1 to 33-1, according to Vegas Insider.
NASSAU, Bahamas - Tiger Woods offered a blast from the past on Friday afternoon - and just maybe a glimpse into the future. But it boasts the best and the best do not appreciate losing.
While he staggered a bit coming home, he finished the day with a 4-under-par 68 and, coupled with his opening-round 69, is at 7 under through 36 holes and in a tie for fifth. And all the while, he was driving it in the style one of the celebrated young generation - long, straight.
A wayward drive on the 18th led to a closing bogey and a disappointed Woods told the Golf Channel: "After that 31 on the front nine I could have gotten a few more on that back nine".
Spectators made a beeline as Woods teed off at 12:05 pm local time while fellow players kept asking for regular updates on the 41-year-old's progress. I got a chance to go out there and play competitive golf again.
Woods also said that his expectations have changed based on the way he's played so far.
Spieth had seven birdies and two bogeys during Friday's round. The first five holes I hit a lot of good shots and felt like I had a good rhythm and a couple birdies early on. "Only thing I really struggled with today was the speed of the greens". A few more pars followed as Woods was all business - nearly expressionless and clearly enjoying his return after 10 months - before providing a peek into his famous fist-pump on the par-3 eighth. So to see Tiger go out and play well doesn't surprise me.
