Tiger Woods makes his return to golf this week and with the world’s attention focused on him, his new golf bag sponsor has chins wagging.
The odds of arguably the greatest ever golfer being sponsored by Monster Energy – a brand often linked to extreme sports – must have been oh so long a decade ago.
As a result, when Woods showed up at the Hero World Challenge with a branded golf bag, heads turned and Twitter erupted…

A subtle homage to his wild days. Tiger is embracing every part of Tiger. Becoming one with himself. THE BIG CAT. HERE WE GO. https://t.co/7nXXwf81xV

Tiger being sponsored by Monster Energy feels like an over-the-hill dad wearing skinny jeans to feel young and cool again. pic.twitter.com/0NNG6JnU8V

Tiger's Monster Energy bag tells me he's a 20 year old motoX rider, his Velcro shoes tell me he's a retired 60 year old. #MixedSignals

Tiger Woods will have Monster Energy on his golf bag, cementing himself as entirely jumping the shark.
