Watch: Tiger Woods hits first public golf shots in two months

On Tuesday, Tiger Woods unveiled his new golf course design at Big Cedar Lodge, called "Payne's Valley" in honor of the late Payne Stewart, and will feature a 19th hole to help golfers settle ties or bets.

However, people in attendance seemed more interested in the man himself, and whether he was getting close to being fit enough to swing a golf club.

The answer, it seems, is yes, although it was far from vintage Tiger. He took two swings of the golf club on the 100-yard par 3, which you can see in the video below.

It's tough to tell where the shots wound up, but according to people on site, the first one, well, it wasn't too good. But hey, it's better than when he dumped three golf balls into the water at the 2016 Quicken Loans National media day.

Woods seemed in good spirits during the ceremony, which was recorded live on Periscope by the PGA Tour Champions.

Woods last played at the Dubai Desert Classic, shooting an opening 77, before withdrawing ahead of the second round on Feb. 3 with back spasms. The 14-time major champ missed the Masters for the third time in four years, and hasn't indicated when he'll return. But friend Notah Begay recently said he expects Woods to be back in May ahead of the U.S. Open.
