It's always nice to see some vintage Tiger Woods. Going head to head against Patrick Cantlay in the WGC Dell Computers Tournament, Woods turned back the clock with a vintage eagle from 83 yards out and followed it up with a classic Tiger fist pump.

If that doesn't get the blood flowing, nothing will.
Woods finds himself down against Cantlay, who is 16 years his junior and has 105 fewer professional wins than the legendary Tiger. Woods, as he usually does, holds most of the all-time records in this specific competition, including matches won, consecutive matches won, and event wins.
Safe to say Cantlay has his work cut out for him.

The decline of Tiger's game following his legendary 2008 US Open victory and subsequent personal and injury troubles has certainly made the sport of golf infinitely less captivating compared to when he was racking up the titles left and right. If this is a sign that Woods is still capable of some vintage moments, that's awfully good news.
