(KPLR) – Tiger Woods stopped traffic in Turkey, when he hit a golf ball off the Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul.

The pro golfer took part in the publicity stunt for the Turkish airlines world golf finals this week.

However, locals in Istanbul weren’t too happy with the stunt.

That’s because it closed the bridge, which connects the continents of Europe and Asia, during the busiest time of the day.
