Tiger Woods paired with Justin Thomas on PGA Tour comeback

'Now you're in The Sunken Place': Jordan Peele reacts to Tiger Woods' golfing with Donald Trump

Faxon was just the latest golfer to praise Woods' revamped swing, joining Rickie Fowler and Jason Day.

The 18-player Hero field includes eight of the world's current top-10 and only one (Woods, who is 1,199th) outside the top-32, making for plenty of intriguing matchups. Shortly thereafter, Faxon, the smallest name in that group, gave a glowing report on the state of Woods' game in an article for Golfweek. "I thought you were going to tweet my name too!", Faxon wrote.

"I think he had 24 birdies". 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. "The ball flight, the sound off the club, all of it was right there".

"The fact that I don't have any pain in my lower back any more compared to what I was living with for years... it's just remarkable, " said Woods in an interview on Sunday with ESPN.com's Bob Harig, the first golf correspondent on site at Albany Golf Club.

Woods underwent a fourth surgical procedure on his injured back (a spinal fusion) in April and adopted a carefully mapped out rehabilitation programme. Everyone else has a combined 384 weeks atop the world ranking since 1997. But according to Faxon, the 14-time major champion was comfortable on the course this time around. From Woods' perspective, the quality-of-life element of being pain-free is evident.

"Though the last there was the first one he embarrassed me on but then I did not expect him to come back if he could not give 100 per cent and unless his golf game was ready".

HTC U11 Getting Android Oreo Update Today, Starting With Unlocked Units
The HTC U11 Life came with an Android 8.0 version out of the box for all global markets besides the United States market. That said, Mo also confirmed that the Oreo update for the U11 on Sprint will be "out as quickly as possible ".

"Tiger looked this morning he was playing pain free and down the last there, he out-drove me by 60 yards and he out-drove me every hole of the nine we played".

In perhaps the most revealing tidbit from his account, Faxon said that Woods was able to rival Johnson's length off the tee. When he was playing previous year, especially in Dubai, it was evident that he never felt comfortable with his swing or any part of his game. In addition to observing Woods and Johnson, the Rhode Island native also bantered with Trump, who he called "a fun guy to joke around with". "I kind of busted his chops and said, 'Hey, where's the love?"

'He laughed, and I told him I was trying to get up to 70,000 followers on Twitter. "Trump immediately replied, 'I have 158 million'".

That's been the ongoing narrative since Woods began his slow climb back to competitive relevance. As the news began to circulate that Woods would join Trump for several rounds of golf; Jordan Peele saw the ideal opportunity to reference his hit film, Get Out.

It was the first time Reed had played with Woods since the opening round of the Hero World Challenge previous year.
