At 9pm last night, while most UK golf fans were winding down for the night, Tiger Woods sent social media into meltdown.

The 14-time major champion announced that he is returning at the Hero World Challenge – an event he hosts in Albany, the Bahamas, from November 30-December 3 – for his first taste of competitive golf in nine months.

Woods was only cleared for full golf activity earlier this month and the announcement comes just six weeks after the 41-year-old said there was a chance he may never play competitively again while on duty as one of Steve Stricker's vice-captains at the Presidents Cup.

But a recent swell of swing videos on social media piqued excitement among his fellow players and fans who were, understandably, delighted to hear about his return. Here's some of the best reaction:
