Tiger Woods (48) delivered an apology.
Woods said, “I’m sorry” after the second round of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars) held at Riviera CC (par 71) in Pacific Palisades, California on the 18th (Korean time).
Earlier, during the first round match, he joked. In the 9th hole, I gave Justin Thomas (USA), who played in the same group, a women’s item. When Woods’ tee shot flew farther than Thomas’ shot, Woods teased Thomas, saying, “I hit it like a woman.” Thomas, who received the women’s items, also laughed out loud. 스포츠토토
