Tiger Drains 44-Foot Bomb, Twitter Goes Nuts

Tiger Woods entered the final round of the Valspar Championship at 8-under par and just one off the lead.

Things looked promising for Woods after a birdie on the par-5 first hole, but he followed it up with a bogey three holes later, and from there it was 12 straight pars to remain at 8-under par.

With Paul Casey already in the clubhouse at 10-under par, Woods arrived at the par-3 17th needing to finish the final two holes of the Snake Pit birdie-birdie. A tall order, no doubt, but Woods made it exciting nonetheless by nailing a 44-foot putt for birdie that rocked the grounds at Innisbrook… and set Twitter on fire.
