Yes, Tiger Woods 100% handed Justin Thomas a tampon after he outdrove him. pic.twitter.com/VJbfldyXhw— Busted Coverage (@bustedcoverage) February 17, 2023
Thomas wasn’t the only one to get shown up on the hole. McIlroy also noted that he was a bit miffed that Tiger was outdriving him and later noted that he’d better put in some driving-range time so that Tiger isn’t outdriving him in the future. [firefly_poll] “I’m going to go work on the range. I put my driver up a click in loft at the start of the week, I might have to turn it back down again,” McIlroy said. “I don’t like him hitting it by me.” Woods had a fairly good day overall, with three birdies in a row to end round two. “I didn’t want to be the idiot host to miss it right in front of everybody after I just went birdie-birdie,” Woods said, according to ESPN. “It was a great round.” Still, solid performance or no, not everyone was amused by Tiger’s tampon joke. Many feminist wokesters on social media attacked Woods for misogyny. USA Today’s Christine Brennan blasted Woods as a bad “girl dad” for the tampon joke. Brennan slammed Tiger for using the tampon to say, in essence, “You play like a girl.” feminist rebukes to Woods.

😡WHY did they think this was funny? WHAT was the purpose of it? HOW are we supposed to remove any stigma around periods and menstrual health if top-level sportsmen are pulling stunts like this & giggling like school boys?😡@thewellhq https://t.co/RvTQKuh9CO— Georgie Heath (@GeorgieHeath27) February 17, 2023
Positioning menstruation as weakness is the patriarchy and this is a puerile, stale joke. Let’s put the menstrual cramp machine on Tiger Woods so he can have some more data about menstruation. https://t.co/0tuZdYzjLZ— Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter) February 17, 2023
But, Twitter being Twitter, not everyone agreed with the woke feminists. Many saw it as a harmless joke. Nathan Matin took it right back to the wokesters by noting that they say men can menstruate, yet are also mad that two men handled a tampon.
Sports commentators laughing, and the fact that Tiger Woods had the tampon in his pocket, ready for the right moment to disrespect women, again 🙄 yeah, I guess Tiger might want to get a refresher on all that therapy he had after his first wife discovered what his other hobby was— liz (@liz63972336) February 17, 2023
Another Twitter user pointed out that liberals have been trying to get tampons put in men’s rooms for years.
Feminists: Men can have periods! Also Feminists: Tiger Woods handing Justin a tampon iS a ThOuGht CriMe— Nathan Martin (@NathanMartin) February 17, 2023
And a liberal sports reporter also found the anti-Tiger backlash a bit too much.
Tiger Woods catching heat for handing a Tampon to JT as a joke for our driving him?….Weird because I’m seeing plenty of places putting tampons in men’s bathrooms as men CAN get periods, can’t they? Pathetic. — My Name (@marshdog123) February 17, 2023
Finally, if one wishes to get technical, female golfers absolutely can’t drive a ball as far as male golfers. If you just want to look at the numbers, top male PGA golfer Cameron Young has a top drive of 316 yards, while top LPGA golfer Maria Fasso’s average shot is only 279 yards. And the stats show that the median distance for men is 290.7 yards, while the median for women is only 257.5 .So, “playing like a girl” in the PGA would, indeed, mean someone is falling behind. Regardless, it is just another example of the left-wing sports media looking for the woke angle instead of just covering sports. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
I don’t often agree with today’s conservatives, but the backlash to Tiger Woods slipping Justin Thomas a tampon after outdriving him is ridiculous.1. It was a private joke intended for Thomas & nobody else. Yes, that matters. A lot. 2. Yes, he loves his daughter — Ed Greenberger (@EdGreenberger) February 17, 2023
