Tiger Woods was the first to congratulate 11-year-old Taylor Crozier who hit a hole-in-one on Woods' golf course at Bluejack National in Montgomery, Texas, United States on 2 March. Woods, who designed The Playgrounds golf course, watched on as Crozier stepped up to hit the first-ever shot on the course at the par-3 74m first hole. Crozier's shot landed on the green and went straight into the hole.
The crowd cheered as Woods celebrated with Crozier who was introduced to the crowd as having a "perfect attendance in school this year - until today". Crozier's day got even better as he and his playing partner beat Woods by three shots.
Former world number one Woods, sidelined from competition since August, said earlier in the week he is feeling "a lot better" as he continues his recovery from back surgeries but has no timetable for his return to the PGA Tour. Last week, the 14-times major champion posted a video of himself swinging a golf club in an effort to shoot down recent reports that suggested he had endured setbacks during his rehabilitation process.
