NOW: Tiger Woods reacts to New Berlin native’s t-shirt in viral video

NEW BERLIN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Pro-golfer Tiger Woods is the center of a now-viral video, sharing the spotlight with a New Berlin native. 

In the video, Thomas Wesling is wearing Tiger's infamous 2017 mugshot at the Players Championship on Saturday. Wesling is a senior at U-W La Crosse. 

He wore the shirt to see if he'd get a response from Tiger, but never expected the encounter to go viral. 

"I had never planned on making a video or anything, but I had befriended the guy next to me and he was like, 'I'll just take a video of when you do it.' Sunday morning, I had all these big accounts requesting to tweet it and post it, and it all kind of just blew up on Sunday morning," New Berlin native Thomas Wesling said. 

Wesling says he plans to go to the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straights next year. He won't wear the shirt but hopes to get it signed.
