Golf: Boy, 11, wows Tiger Woods with hole-in-one

It's not every day that aspiring golfers get to play next to former World No.1 Tiger Woods, much less stun him with a hole-in-one.

Eleven-year-old Taylor Crozier did just that on Wednesday (March 2), as the ball effortlessly spun into the hole at The Playgrounds at Bluejack National in Montgomery, Texas, a new golf course that Woods helped design.

The South Texas PGA junior, who was introduced as "the boy with the perfect attendance in school this year - until today", had been given the honour of taking the inaugral shot.

A visibly stunned Woods who was watching nearby, was seen giving Taylor a bear hug after the amazing feat.

Woods even posted a video of the impressive shot on Twitter.

The Playgrounds is a 10-hole short course where the focus is on fun and family, Woods said on his website.

"The vision is to attract multi-generations to promote socializing with family and friends and introduce new players to the game," he wrote.

Woods, 40, who is currently recovering from a back surgery, said in the same post that there was no timetable for his return to competitive play.

He added that he was starting to feel a lot better and had been "chipping and putting at home, and recently started hitting 9 irons".

In February, Twitter posts from two different handles - one of them long-time golf writer Robert Lusetich - suggested that the 14-time Major golf champion's rehabilitation was not going well and that his condition had deteriorated.

Woods' agent Mark Steinberg, however, said the rumour was not true.
