Tiger Woods’ hard-cut chin-up… Apologies for the ‘sanitary napkin prank’ controversy
Tiger Woods, the “Emperor of Golf,” who participated in the PGA Tour for the first time in seven months and garnered a lot of attention, was caught in the cut line. Depending on the results of some players who did not finish the game by sunset, they may pass the cut or be eliminated. In addition, he bowed his head about the controversy related to women’s온라인카지노 products that caused controversy during the first round.
Woods made two birdies in the second round on the second day of the tournament held at the Riviera CC (par 71) in Pacific Palisades, California on the 18th (Korean time), but struggled with putts and committed 5 bogeys, losing 3 strokes. Woods, who recorded an interim total of 1 over par, tied for 60th place. As of the current situation, the fate of players who passed the cut but did not finish the game by sunset may change their fate depending on the final score.
Woods, who drove the cloud gallery, started from hole 10 and made bogeys 12 and 13 in a row, then finished the first half with a par with birdies on holes 14 and 17. However, he almost got eliminated as he committed 3 bogeys on holes 6, 8 and 9 with 4 holes left in the second half.
Woods, who was not physically fit enough to ride a cart in an event just two months ago, but in this event that he decided to participate in, he is showing a surprisingly good shot and showing a figure comparable to his heyday.
Rory McIlroy, who played two rounds together, commented on Woods’ game, saying, “Woods’ swing speed was fast, he covered a lot of distance, and he did what he wanted.”
However, Woods had to apologize after the match for the controversial incident the day before.
When Woods sent his driver farther than his best friend Justin Thomas, who played in the same group in the ninth hole of the first round, as he moved to take his second shot, the scene of Woods quietly passing a sanitary napkin into Thomas’ hand was captured by many foreign media cameras. It is said that it was an action with the nuance of ‘I think I’m a female player because my driver is shorter than me’. It was a scene that Woods and Thomas could laugh at, but it drew scathing criticism from fans and public opinion that it was an insult to a woman.
Woods apologized, saying, “It was a joke without bad intentions,” and “I’m sorry if I hurt someone unintentionally.”
Meanwhile, last month’s Farmers Insurance winner, Max Homar, took the lead with a 10-under par. Homa was one stroke ahead of the runners-up group including John Rahm, Keith Mitchell and Lee Hodges. Scotty Scheffler, who returned to world No. 1 this week, reduced three strokes to rank in a tie for 12th place with a median total of 4 under. Rory McIlroy, who tried to regain first place, was tied for 7th place with an interim total of 6 under.
Lim Seong-jae tied for 12th place with Schaeffler with a median total of 4 under par, Kim Joo-hyung reduced one stroke to tie for 33rd place with 1 under par, and Kim Seong-hyun tied for 51st with an even par. Kim Si-woo, Lee Kyung-hoon, and Kim Young-soo were eliminated from the cut.
