Tiger Woods recently made a comeback from a horrific solo car crash and competed at the 2021 PNC Championship. Coming back to the golf course, he has clarified that he still needs a few more months to compete on the PGA Tour. Tiger had an incredible PNC Championship as he, along with his son, finished runners-up. 

Team Woods finished just two strokes behind the winners’ John Daly and John Daly II. Tiger looked in good touch, apart from the walking part. He was struggling slightly with his right leg, and hence he still needs to develop a bit of strength before competing on the PGA Tour.

He decided to go for a driver off the deck. This is considered to be one of the most challenging golf shots. So Tiger hit an incredible flat shot and took the help of the wind to reach the green on the second stroke itself and gave himself a chance of an eagle. However, he missed the eagle putt and settled for a birdie.
