The first video of Tiger Woods back in competitive action since his devastating car accident in February is now online. The golfer, who was seated on a stool in a dark garage-like setting, posted a short clip of himself hitting what appeared to be a drive, much like the drives that he is famous for on the golf course. Woods captioned the video, posted on his official Facebook page: “Stoked to be in competition again.”
