Tiger Woods hasn't had the best of starts to the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral - the world number one sits at +5 after two rounds, which should put him in the top 25 going in to the final two rounds.

But his score would be a little worse if it weren't for a miraculous birdie he made during his second round.

On the 203-yard par-3 4th hole, Woods hit a poor tee shot that came up 91ft short of the cup - that's roughly the length of two and a half double decker buses.

It was a putt so long, and over two such huge bumps, that at first glance you almost thought he probably needed a pitching wedge rather than a putter.

But the great man made it look easy: he smashed the ball with his putter dead weight and bang on line - and the ball rolled straight into the centre of the cup for a birdie!

It's not quite the longest putt ever holed on TV - that record is held, almost unbelievably, by swimming superstar Michael Phelps - but it was still fairly miraculous and helped keep Woods in the hunt for one of the biggest tournaments of the year.
