Facing some backlash in the aftermath of the incident, Thomas responded in a series of tweets Monday afternoon.

Thomas had previously made headlines for saying PGA Tour crowds had gotten "out of hand" after playing the Waste Management Open and then teeing it up alongside Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy in front of boisterous spectators at the Genesis Open.

Thomas was in action Monday at the Seminole Pro-Member, paired with Harcourt Kemp. His next tournament action will come at this week's event in Mexico City.
