It’s been a tough few years for Tiger Woods, now the world’s 446th highest-ranked golfer. The former champion was beaten again this week, when an 11-year-old hit a hole-in-one inaugural shot on a new course that Woods designed.

Taylor Crozier from Corpus Christi, Texas, had the honor of hitting the inaugural shot at the opening of a Woods-designed course in Houston. Woods was there to witness the moment the young golfer hit the perfect shot, sending the crowd into a frenzy.

Woods failed to follow suit, talking three shots at the hole. Crozier beat his hero over nine holes, finishing three shots ahead of Woods on two over par.

However, the only sore feelings from Woods were in his back, which he has had surgery on three times over the past two years. He congratulated the youngster before sharing the clip online.

Forty-year-old Woods slipped down the world rankings after failing to achieve a top five finish in the past two years. The golfer has repeatedly had issues with his back in the last few seasons. Despite not playing competitively since August Woods said he intends to return to play again once he is free of pain in his back.

Woods won’t be too jealous of Crozier, he’s had plenty of memorable moments in golf himself.
