Tiger Woods has apologised for handing playing partner Justin Thomas a tampon as a prank during the Genesis International tournament.
Woods was spotted slyly handing the tampon over to Thomas during the tournament’s ninth hole on Thursday.
Thomas swiftly threw it to the ground and the incident has now sparked outrage on social media, with Woods now issuing an apology over the matter.
“Yeah it was supposed to be fun and games but obviously it hasn’t turned out that way.
“If I offended anybody it was not the case, it was just friends having fun and as I said if I offended anybody in any way shape or form, I’m sorry.
“It was not intended to be that way, we play pranks on one another all the time and virally I think this did not come across that way but between us it was different.”

Woods’ apology came at the end of his second round, where he scored a 3-over 74. His 36-hole total of 1 over par leaves him in danger of missing the cut.
