Tiger Woods marks his return to the PGA Tour with a style crash on the first lap at Pacific Palisades that only came to light on the second day of competition.
Tiger Woods, results
On hole 9 the champion was in fact immortalized as he put a sanitary pad in the hand of his lifelong friend Justin Thomas.
The two, with Rory McIlroy, were on the same team at the Genesis Invitational. Thomas, when he realized what it was, dropped it to the ground, smiling. The situation has not gone unnoticed with related criticisms arriving via social media and beyond.
More than one American sportswoman, such as Laura Davies and Anna Caplice, has asked Tiger Woods to apologize to all women for an “out of place and not funny joke”. Waiting to know the behavior of Woods off the field eyes focused on the results on the green.
Tiger slipped from 27th to 60th position in the standings, thanks to an overall score of +1. The second lap wasn’t as brilliant as Thursday’s. Tiger made five bogeys (three in the last four holes played) and two birdies for +3 on the day.
The second round of the Genesis Invitational was suspended due to obscurity but the 47-year-old from Cypress Hill should make it through the cut and play into the weekend. On the course of the Riviera Country Club (par 71), in the lead with 132 strokes (64 68, -10) there is still Max Homa.
Following him with 133 (-9) are Jon Rahm (third in the world ranking) and the Americans Keith Mitchell and Lee Hodges. Good performance also for Collin Morikawa, fifth with 134. Patrick Cantlay is sixth with 135 while Rory McIlroy, seventh with 136 shots (-6) on a par with Matt Kuchar.
Scottie Scheffler, world number one, moved up from 44th to 12th position with 138 (-4). Instead, Francesco Molinari can already be considered out, 125th with 150 shots (+8). Eldrick Tont Woods (born December 30, 1975), better known as Tiger Woods, is an American golfer.
Considered among the best golfers of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, in his more than twenty-year career he won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, making him the most successful player in history ; held the number one position in the OWG world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, 281 of which were consecutive weeks (from June 12, 2005 to October 30, 2010), and is the only golfer to have won all four majors in the modern era within a single year (between 2000 and 2001).
