South Africa readies the golf puns as Tiger Woods’ mugshot hits Twitter

Tiger Woods was arrested for a DUI last night just outside his home in Florida, and he’s disappointed his fan base yet again.

The golfer, who has been recovering from a back injury, has said that it was a mix of prescription medication he wasn’t used to. But the combination of an unseemly mugshot and his former trespasses has left people upset over on South African Twitter.

But some thought people weren’t cutting him enough slack — especially considering his explanation.

Others just though it an apt time to crack out the golf jokes.

And some took the time to consider how backwards 2017 would look to someone in 2007.

Last week, Woods asserted his “unequivocal” intent on reentering professional golf. He’s yet to state whether that is still the case.
