Tiger Woods saw an 11-year-old hit a hole-in-one with the inaugural tee shot and go on to beat him at the new par-three golf course Woods helped design in Texas.

Taylor Crozier's tee shot spun right to find the hole on the 81-yard opener at The Playgrounds, near Houston, and Woods embraced the young golfer as the watching crowd went wild.

That shot helped Crozier and his playing partner Ceci Lococo record rounds of 32 on the 10-hole course while 14-time major winner Woods could only manage a 35, giving the youngsters a signed scorecard to treasure.

Former world number one Woods, who has been off the PGA Tour with ongoing back issues, tweeted a video of Crozier's shot, saying: "First hole at The Playgrounds, and this happened."

Woods, who hasn't played competitively since the Wyndham Championship in August revealed how he was in such a bad state he was unable to even play catch with his son. His injury woes have been long-standing throughout his whole career and he believes had he not pushed through the pain barriers, he may not have suffered as badly as he has. 

He said: "“I’ve played through a lot of injuries, I’ve played through some situations I probably shouldn’t have played."

Another major?

Having won 14 majors in 11 years, it is hard to tell whether or not he will win another. Woods' last major came all the way back in 2008 at the US Open and having just undergone his third back operation in less than two years, it is unlikely Woods will be able to win another major. 

The current pack dominating the PGA tour are a group of young, talented individuals that Woods once was.

Jordan Speith, Rory McIIroy and Jason Day: this trio has won five out of the last eight majors and have an average age of 26. Woods is already 40.
