Tiger Woods caused a stir by posting a photo on Friday morning. And it had nothing to do with golf.

Instead, Woods showed off a lobster he caught while "free diving with the kids." Here's a look at Big Cat Big Claw.

Woods looks great in the photo (other than the awkward facial expression), and the fact that he's doing an activity like free diving is a positive sign that he's feeling better -- so was this photo of him at the gym -- after undergoing a fourth back surgery in April. And it's good to see him out and about following that whole DUI arrest and subsequent stint getting professional help dealing with his use of medications.

Not surprisingly, an excited golf Twitter had a field day with Woods' latest social media post. Although no one pointed out that Woods' bathing suit is red and black. Of course.
