Humor-challenged USA Today columnist throws fit over Tiger Woods’ tampon joke, is flogged on Twitter

Perpetually aggrieved leftists threw a collective hissy fit over Tiger Woods’ ribald attempt at humor when the legendary golfer presented one of his opponents with a feminine hygiene product during the opening round of the Genesis Invitational tournament in Los Angeles on Thursday.

After Woods bested fellow golfer Justin Thomas by outdriving him on the ninth hole at the iconic Riviera Country Club, the 47-year-old jokester pranked the younger man by handing him a tampon, just a bit of good natured fun between the guys that was like chum in the water to the predatory “woke” outrage mob who so savaged the man who is widely regarded as one of the greatest golfers in the sport’s history that he was forced to apologize.

“It was supposed to be all fun and games and obviously it hasn’t turned out that way,” Woods said while being interrogated by reporters. “If I offended anybody, it was not the case, it was just friends having fun. As I said, if I offended anybody in any way, shape or form, I’m sorry. It was not intended to be that way.”

While Woods may have issued his mea culpa to the humor-challenged and thin-skinned but it just wasn’t enough for USA Today columnist Christine Brennan who dashed off a screed indignantly huffing at Tiger who she accused of being a misogynist and shaming him for the audacity of having a sense of humor because he has a teenaged daughter who is also a golfer.

“Tiger Woods, the 47-year-old father of a sports-playing teenage daughter, was photographed Thursday giving his playing partner Justin Thomas a tampon after Woods outdrove him in the first round of a PGA Tour event, replicating an old prank that immature school boys used to think was funny,” Brennan wrote. I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence in 2023. 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. Really, Tiger?”

She also took her rant to Twitter where it would draw more attention from the howling banshees who police the platform to enforce conformity to the rigid ideology of leftists who would be far better served spending their time in therapy instead of on social media.

“Tiger’s tampon moment leads to various questions: Do all male golfers carry tampons onto the course, or is it just Tiger? We know women golfers do, but maybe it’s a male golfer thing now too. How does Tiger get his tampons? Buy his own? Steal them from the women’s locker room?” Brennan demanded to know.

“Tiger’s tampon is far from the biggest sports issue but it does play into the old narrative that golf leaders are desperately trying to change, clearly with limited success: That golf is for men and men alone, including those grown men who apparently still act like teenagers,” she added.

Brennan’s silly rant drew a strong response from Twitter users who gave her the birdie.

Heading into Sunday’s action, Woods is going to need a major miracle to climb up the leaderboard where he is currently tied for 26th at three under, way back of leader Jon Rahm who is leading the field with an impressive 15 under.
