‘Emperor’ Tiger Woods (USA), who returned after 7 months, bowed his head.
It’s because of a prank made with a period. On the 17th (Korean time), Woods was caught handing a tampon (sanitary pad) to Justin Thomas (USA), who played a round with him, at the 9th hole in the first round of the Genesis Invitational of the PGA Tour. When her tee shot went farther, it was a sanitary pad prepared in advance, meaning ‘like a woman’.
Woods’ best friend Thomas laughed it off, but then criticism poured in.
Eventually, Woods apologized. After the second round on the 18th, he bowed his head, saying, “I’m sorry if I offended anyone온라인바카라, if I hurt anyone in any way,” and “I didn’t have any bad intentions. It was just a joke.”
Performance was also shaken. In the first round, he hit 2 under par and was said to be “the emperor”, but after the incident, he played 3 over par in the second round. Subtotal 1 over par. With the second round not over due to sunset, the expected cut-off criterion is 1 over par.
Max Homa (USA) took the sole lead with 10 under par, while Keith Mitchell, Lee Hodges (USA) and Jon Rahm (Spain) pursued with 9 under par. Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) tied for 7th with 6 under par.
Among Korean players, Lim Seong-jae (25) ranked the highest with a tie for 12th place with an interim total of 4 under par. Joo-hyung Kim (21) finished the second round with a tie for 33rd at 1-under par, and Seong-Hyun Kim (25) tied for 51st at even par. Kim Si-woo (28) missed the cut with a 5-over par, Lee Kyung-hoon (32) with a 7-over par, and Kim Young-soo (34) with a 9-over par.
