Further proof Tiger Woods is rounding back into form … the notorious trash-talker outdrove Justin Thomas on a hole Thursday, then pranked him in a way that would make 15-year-old boys giggle, but also might offend women.
The moment went down on the ninth hole of the guys’ opening round at the Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles … when Tiger brought out his driver, and nuked a ball 323 yards down the fairway.

Thomas’ ensuing drive didn’t even come close to the legend’s … falling some 20 yards short of it — and as the two were walking to their balls, Tiger slyly passed off a Tampax to his good buddy.
It took a quick second for Thomas to realize what it was — and then he immediately dropped it. The guys then shared a huge laugh and a side hug with each other.
Of course, Tiger and J.T. are very good friends and have both become known for talking smack on the course. In fact, at The Match back in December, the two threw jabs at each other for hours throughout the evening.
Thomas ended up with the last laugh on Tiger, though — at least, when it came to Thursday’s scores — he shot a 3-under 68, while Woods carded a 2-under 69.
Both dudes will tee it up again in just a few minutes on Friday morning — and it’s a good bet more sophomoric jokes will be flying throughout Round 2.
