An ace is always undoubtedly special. It becomes doubly special if you can pull it off in front of the legendary Tiger Woods. But what if the 15-time Major winner also happens to be the architect of the same course?

Golf Digest, on their ‘X’ handle, posted a clip that took the internet by storm. In the video, a young golfer is seen celebrating after shooting a hole-in-one. Apparently, the amateur golfer achieved this unique feat on the very course that was designed by Woods, while the legend himself was present on the sidelines.

The cherry on top was that the feat was pulled off in the hole that was named after Tiger Woods as well. Can it get any better? The veteran golfer looked mighty impressed as well. Incidentally, Woods himself has holed 20 aces in his career, the first coming in 1996.

The 47-year-old golfer came up with a broad smile on his face to congratulate the youngster. A hug followed a high-five from the former world no. 1—quite the story to tell your friends, right?

Interestingly, in the video, Woods was seen sporting a club in his hand. Does it indicate that a comeback is on the horizon?

When will Tiger Woods be back on the greens?

The 15x Major Winner underwent ankle surgery in April. Since then, watching him swing clubs has been a rare sighting. Before the TGR Invitational, however, TGR Live posted a video of Tiger Woods hitting a wedge at The Hay at Pebble Beach.

Before this in September, Woods was seen hitting one-handed chip shots at Liberty National alongside Rickie Fowler. The 82-time PGA Tour winner was forced to pull out of this year’s Masters due to niggling injuries.
