Tiger Woods hasn't been perfect in his official return to the PGA Tour, but he's had a few moments that should get fans excited for what lies ahead this year.

On Thursday at the Farmers Insurance Open, it was this near hole-in-one at the 16th hole on Torrey Pines' South Course that got the gallery on their feet.

And in Round 2 he played his front nine in 2-over 38 before giving the the crowd a vintage Tiger fist pump after dropping a long putt for birdie on the North Course's par-4 first hole.

Woods went on to make birdie on the par-5 fifth hole and then followed that up with a clutch flop shot to get up and down for par at No. 6:

And on the driveable par-4 seventh hole, Tiger got up and in from the greenside rough and into red numbers with his third birdie of the day:

Woods dropped a shot on the par-3 eighth hole, but got it right back on his final hole of the day, the par-5 ninth:

That final birdie capped off a 1-under 71, good enough to make the cut on the number.
