Tiger Woods has made his long awaited return to professional golf this week. He is playing in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, a tournament he hosts.
This comes less than eight months after having successful ankle surgery stemming from the car accident back in 2021. Not only has Woods mostly looked like himself walking the course, a big point of emphasis, but he also looks strong as an ox.
The Twitter account Big Boy Pants Golf took notice and decided to take a shot at the 15-time major winner.
“Tiger making his hat look like sometime you’d put two scoops of ice cream into and cover with sprinkles. Things starting to feel very Lance Armstrong-y,” they tweeted.
This account has voiced its opinion on Woods taking steroids before. That’s not what’s worth noting here.
On the top of the post, you can see that Phil Mickelson liked the post.
There is no love lost between Mickelson and Woods. What started out as a friendly rivalry, in recent years has grown contentious. That was only amplified when Mickelson left the PGA Tour for LIV Golf. He has since become arguably the most vocal supporter of LIV, despite openly acknowledging the human rights abuses and atrocities committed by the source income of the rival league.
Nevertheless, Woods, no doubt, looks fit. He has even talked about how much time he has spent in the gym working out, recovering from injuries and surgeries.
But let’s not forget, Woods has been jacked for years. The early Tiger transformed his body well more than a decade ago. So this is nothing new.
Do you lend any credence to this accusation of Woods on steroids? Let us know in the comments below.
