On the 17th (Korean time), at the ninth hole of the first round of the Genesis Invitational of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, Woods was captured on camera passing a tampon (sanitary pad for insertion into the body) to his partner Justin Thomas (USA). It was a prop prepared in advance to tease Thomas when his tee shot flew farther than Thomas’. When Thomas was handed the tampon, he burst into laughter. Woods and Thomas are famous for being close friends who get along like real brothers. However, controversy arose as the scene spread over the airwaves and through social media.
USA Today columnist Christine Brennan criticized, “I teased Thomas by saying, ‘You hit me like a girl.’ Sky Sports host Sarah Stuck said it was “very stupid” and “really disappointing.” Lawyer and author Julie Dickaro called it “silly,” saying, “Men may find these pranks amusing, but they insult women.”
After finishing the second round on the 18th, Woods apologized, saying, “It was a joke. It was not a bad intention.”
