WATCH: Tiger Woods drains 71-foot putt

By Jesse Reed

Tiger Woods is atop the leaderboard at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill this Thursday, thanks in part to a ridiculous putt he drained to take the outright lead.

Through 16 holes, Woods is 4-under par and leads the field by one stroke. It’s early, but it sure seems like Woods is really back this time.

After his second-place finish last weekend and what we’re seeing so far today, you really have to believe Woods is finally ready to lay claim to the top spot in golf once again after a five-year absence from the winner’s circle.
