Tiger Woods made a joke with a sanitary pad used by women on his return stage after 7 months, and apologized when criticism grew stronger.
On the 17th, Woods handed a tampon-type sanitary pad to Justin Thomas, who played with him at the 9th hole of the first round of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational held at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, near Los Angeles, California, USA. When his tee shot flew farther than Thomas, it was a prop prepared in advance to tease his ‘best friend’ Thomas, who received it and laughed out loud.
However, this scene was caught on a relay camera and spread through social networking services (SNS), causing controversy.
In the end, after finishing the second round on the 18th (Korean time), Woods said, “It was a joke, it was not a bad intention,” and “I’m sorry if I hurt others in any way.” He added, “We joke with each other all the time, but I don’t think it’s communicated that way to people.” 안전놀이터
