Tiger Woods eagled the par-4 seventh hole at the Hero World Challenge pro-am in the Bahamas this morning, and fans had a hard time keeping their cool. In response to the PGA Tour's clip of Woods's 20 foot putt, ecstatic, hyperventilating fans clogged Twitter with "He's Back" memes.

Woods is making his return to competitive golf this week at the small event in Albany, just as he did last year. Nearly a year ago today, golf fans reacted in a similar way to the two eagles Woods carded in the Hero World Challenge pro-am, latching on to these moments as hopeful omens after Woods's 15 months away from tournament play. But his comeback afterward didn't exactly go as planned, as Woods battled a back injury before eventually undergoing surgery for a fourth time.

Check out video of Tiger's first four holes at the pro-am below:
