Aug. 15 (UPI) -- Golfer Rickie Fowler made fun of himself recently when his friend Justin Thomas took a photo with Tiger Woods.

The No. 10 ranked golfer in the world was in Jupiter, Fla., with Thomas and Woods on Monday. The group posted multiple photos of Woods standing with his arm around Thomas, who was holding the Wanakamer Trophy. Thomas claimed his first major victory Sunday after shooting an 8-under during the 2017 PGA Championship. He edged three second-place finishers by two strokes with his final round of 3-under.

"Got to have a great dinner with the PGA champion @JustinThomas34 and his family and friends," Woods tweeted.

The meeting happened at Woods' restaurant, The Woods, in Palm Beach County.

"Great dinner! Glad to spend the night with TW," Thomas tweeted. "Learned a lot from him through the past few years."

Fowler joked about the photo of his friends, writing: "14-1-0...0 not pictured" on Snapchat.

The slight was directed at himself. Woods has 14 major victories while Thomas now has one. Fowler is still looking for his first.

Thomas then got in on the joking with a short video Monday. The golfer rode in his car for the Snapchat clip, talking to the Wanamaker Trophy in the passenger seat.

"About to do a morning drive," Thomas said. "Had a nice co-pilot this morning. Had to make sure she was strapped in."

A toxicology report recently found that Woods had five drugs in his system during his May DUI arrest.

Woods issued a statement to the Golf Channel regarding the matter.

"As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications," Woods said. "Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance. I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I've made significant progress. I remain grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me."

"Regarding my back, I recently spoke to my surgeon and he's very pleased with how my fusion is healing. I'm right on schedule. I'm now doing some light lifting, riding a stationary bike and putting a little."

Thomas is currently ranked No. 6 in the world, while Woods has fallen to No. 1,087.
