Tiger Woods is set to resume his first round of the Masters on Friday morning, but there's one shot of his from Thursday's action that still has golf fans buzzing on social media.

Woods, who got in 13 holes on Thursday before the play was called due to darkness, played some really great golf in difficult decisions and sits at 1 under before play gets back underway. He started things off with a birdie on the first hole and then battled through some very windy conditions the rest of the day.

He made a great par on the difficult 11th hole thanks to a filthy chip shot that had fans in awe. Check this out:

That was a thing of absolute beauty.

Fans loved it:

Bryson DeChambeau leads the Masters after a 7-under 65, but it will be interesting to see if Woods can gain some ground on Friday.
