ATiger Woods tampon moment has gone viral and internet golfer Paige Spiranac is all for it.
Woods was playing with partners Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas at the Genesis Invitational, and outdrove both golf pros at the ninth hole.
He then discreetly handed Thomas a tampon, a moment Spiranac enjoyed.
“I need a LIV vs PGA tour Ryder cup type event just so Tiger can give Phil a tampon after out driving him,” Spiranac tweeted. She also added: “If anyone tries to cancel Tiger over this we riot. It’s funny.”
However, McIlroy had the last laugh, beating both players on the course.
Thomas ‘hits like a girl’
The bizarre incident has drawn plenty of attention from fans and pundits alike, with some like Spiranac praising the incident. However, not everyone is onboard with the move. Some, like Sky Sports’ Sarah Stirk found the move crass and unprofessional.
“Woods’ message to Thomas was obvious. It has been the go-to line of silly, often insecure boys for generations: You play like a girl,” USA Today columnist Christine Brennan wrote.
“What a bizarre thing for a “girl dad” to do. His daughter Sam, now 15, grew up playing soccer and had just played in a tournament in Florida when she arrived to watch him win the Masters in 2019.
“He employed basic misogyny to insult his good friend Thomas, a knee-slapper of a dig against female athletes: You hit the ball like a girl!”
