Tiger Woods hasn’t been in contention like this in ages. And on Sunday, down by two strokes on the 17th hole at the Valspar Championship, he once again looked like the Tiger of old.
Staring at a long 44-foot putt after a very conservative tee shot on the par-three, Woods stepped up and drained it.

This incredible putt put Woods just one shot back with one hole remaining, and the Twitterverse exploded.
I’m drinking it. He’s great to watch

Incredibly, as Tiger Woods was making his charge, one of the guys in front of him leading the tournament, Patrick Reed, badly missed his birdie putt, which fell back down the hill and cost him a valuable shot. That’s the power of Woods, who has a history of making his competitors crumble as he makes his charge up the leaderboard.
