Tiger Woods: 'Life is so much better'

  • WATCH: Tiger Woods' driver swing at Hero World Challenge

Woods and Reed played nine holes at the Albany golf course in preparation for the Hero World Challenge and the young American was clearly impressed by the form of the 14-time major victor.

The anticipation is nearly over and Tiger Woods is set to step back into a tee box this weekend at the Hero Challenge.

For the 41-year-old Woods, the tournament - one which supports his charitable foundation and with only a select 18-man field - offers him the opportunity to return on his own terms; a guaranteed four rounds of competition in a relatively relaxed environment among players who have accepted his invitation. Faxon said Tiger looked great and was happy on the course, since he says he is finally pain free. He had gone through three back surgeries at that point, the first one right before the 2014 Masters, and Woods looked relatively normal, with freedom in his swing.

"I witnessed first-hand what Fowler saw - a pain-free Tiger that looked like he was able to hit the golf ball and will be able to be in the mix again", Faxon concluded. "But he's in a great place mentally and physically". Whether it was hard and fast, to hold it up into the wind, or soft, or going at it a little steeper in the bunkers.

"I was impressed with how far [Woods] hit the ball", Faxon wrote in a Golfweek column after the famous foursome's best-ball match.

"Probably on the 10 holes that they were both hitting driver, Tiger hit it past Dustin half the time and Dustin hit it past Tiger half the time".

Woods' last official event was the Dubai Desert Classic in February, where he shot an opening round of 77 before withdrawing due to lower back spasms.

"He hit it by me a couple of times", Johnson said.

"He was just demolishing me and I thought I was playing against 2000 Tiger", Reed said.

"After Turkey call I will be heading over to Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson", President Trump tweeted on Friday. "But I don't have the pain and if I don't have the pain life is so much better".
