On the same day he was dealing with an apparently leaked toxicology report that listed the drugs found in his system when he was arrested on a DUI charge, Tiger Woods had a much more pleasant experience at dinner, joining PGA champion Justin Thomas, according to this tweet.

Thomas lives in Jupiter, Fla.; Woods in adjacent Hobe Sound. The dinner was Woods' restaurant, The Woods, in Jupiter. Thomas said Tuesday on "Morning Drive" that the dinner included: Thomas' girlfriend, mother and a buddy; Tiger and his children; and Rickie Fowler and girlfriend Allison Stokke.

For Woods, it was an opportunity to reconnect with the Wannamaker Trophy, which he won four times (1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007). For Thomas, who topped the field on Sunday at Quail Hollow, it was an opportunity to show off his first major hardware of any kind.

“It’s just a normal dinner, but Tiger is someone I’ve looked up to through my entire life and someone I’ve wanted to model my golf game after," Thomas said. "He’s been such a help, mentor and role model for me – it’s really cool to enjoy these moments with him now.”
