The England native tweeted out the photo seen above and admitted that the wardrobe malfunction occurred when he was reading a putt on the second hole of the day.
"They can all see my underpants," he said. "So it was quite embarrassing."
"Can you imagine? I'm 6-6 with a massive hole in my trousers in America," Wood said. "I'm going to get heckled for fun, aren't I? I just blanked out, to be honest. Everyone was laughing at me as soon as I hit my tee shot."
Fortunately, Wood was able to borrow some pants from a club pro about midway through his round.
Because Wood doesn't want history repeating itself, the golfer went prepared for round two on Friday by packing two extra pairs of trousers, just to be safe.
