Tiger Woods' Bizarre Tampon Prank At Genesis Invitational Divides Internet

Tiger Woods slipped a tampon into Justin Thomas' hand during the Genesis Invitational tournament, which he hosts and where proceeds go to his TGR Foundation.

Woods was playing alongside Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy and was playing well, regularly driving 320 yards and outdriving his partners on several holes.

Woods was captured on camera discreetly handing something into Mr Thomas' hand on the ninth hole. A video shared on social media showed Mr Thomas taking a moment to see what the item was before throwing it to the ground.

The incident drew a mixed response on social media, with some criticising Woods and labelling his prank as "embarrassingly immature".

Woods made his first appearance since The Open in July and made three birdies on his final three holes to card an opening round of 69.

The incident sparked a debate on social media about what constitutes acceptable humor and the boundaries of banter between friends.

Woods' sense of humor and prankster behavior was praised by some, while others criticized it as inappropriate and lacking sophistication.
