Watch: 44-Foot Putt The Latest Proof That Tiger Woods Is Back

Five years after his last win on the PGA Tour, Tiger Woods is categorically back.

OK, he didn't claim victory at the Valspar Championship having been tied for the lead shortly after the commencement of the final round, but the 14-time majors winner showed enough to suggest that he is surely on an upward curve.

Playing with the kind of overwhelming scrutiny that most golfers - nay, sportspeople generally - could possible imagine, Woods overcame a slow middle-period to his round to finish strongly.

A few shots off the lead coming into the last number of holes, this 44-foot putt demonstrated something of the form that he is beginning to show again.

The reaction of the crowd further demonstrates just how much the golfing world wants him to do it.

In the end, Woods was faced with a daunting putt to drive the eventual winner Paul Casey to a playoff.

Looking quite disappointed with himself for not making what would have been a monumental finish bodes well for the expectations he is putting himself under.

As always, there was a huge response to Woods' ever-increasing return to form, and, with the year's first major right around the corner, Woods is coming into it looking a little bit more likelier to claim that elusive 15th.
