‘Golf emperor’ Tiger Woods (USA) apologized after being criticized for playing with a sanitary pad during a game.
On the 17th (Korean time), Woods handed a sanitary pad to Justin Thomas (USA) of the same group at the 9th hole in the 1st round of the Genesis Invitational of the PGA Tour, which was held on the 17th (Korean time).
It was a prop prepared in advance to tease Thomas when his tee shot flew farther than Thomas. When Thomas was handed a sanitary pad, he burst into laughter바카라사이트. The two are known for their close friendship.
However, controversy arose as the scene caught the airwaves and spread through social media.
USA Today columnist Christine Brennan criticized, “I teased Thomas by saying, ‘You hit me like a girl,’ but that’s not something a father of a 15-year-old daughter should do.”
Sky Sports host Sarah Stuck said it was “very stupid” and “really disappointing.”
Attorney and writer Julie Dickaro called it “silly,” saying, “Men may find these pranks amusing, but they insult women.”
As the criticism rushed in, Woods apologized after finishing the second round on the 18th, saying, “It was a joke. It was not a bad intention.”
