Between his back problems and scattered rounds, Tiger Woods wasn't having much fun at the Cadillac Championship at Doral.
But even the up-and-down Woods can give us a glimpse of the old Tiger, and on the par 3 No. 4 on Friday, he didn't disappoint.
From 91 feet, seven inches away, Woods was probably hoping to par. Instead, he sank the longest putt the PGA tour has seen in five years and his longest putt since 2001.
This came after Woods, a four-time champion at Doral and the world's No. 1 player, finished off a first-round 76 early Friday for his highest score in 40 complete rounds on the course. He could not finish his round on Thursday due to weather.
