Watch: Tiger Woods Looks Like His Old Self Again And People Are Loving It

Having made about as many "comebacks" now as majors won, there was something different about Tiger Woods' latest return to golf.

Taking part in the Hero World Challenge tournament, reports of his most recent back surgery arrived with Woods' own assurances that this time, perhaps, it was different.

Needless to say, there was plenty of excitement surrounding the return of golf's most recognisable player.

Claiming that he was once again capable of playing golf for "fun", Woods' start to proceedings in a competitive environment has been promising to say the least.

Approaching the 9th in his first round today, Woods was tied 10th at -1. By rounds end, he had made it down to -3 and was tied 7th, 3 shots off the lead.

As always with Woods, there has been plenty to get the baited crowd excited.

Without the slightest hint of the grimacing that had become part and parcel of Woods' game during recent comeback attempts, viewers were even treated to the "fist pump" after saving par on the 4th.

While it will undoubtedly take Woods longer than a round of golf to rediscover the form of old (if he can manage it all), some very big names are taking great joy in seeing the 14-time Major winner operating in a manner that few thought they would see again.

Still early days, how Woods reacts to the strains of playing for an extended period will be of great interest to those who wish to see him back competing for majors.

For now, we are as well to enjoy while we can.
