    Justin Thomas had 4 putted and made some stinky shots, was dropping down the board yesterday, and finally after a poor chip he dropped the F bomb.
    It was very clear. The announcer - after being held speechless for a moment, merely apologized for “that audio”, another announcer said, “he’ll pay for that” (but it was unclear whether it was the shot or the epithet that would cost him, and play continued with no further comment).
    Anyone else hear this?
    It’s not that I’m so offended- not all.
    It’s just an unusual occurrence - one would expect much more colorful language from the people who make their living, playing this infuriating game. The pros are normally so composed.

    They do it. The broadcasters just sanitise the coverage for our sensitive ears.

    It was only a month ago that Patrick Reed let fly with “mother fvcker” after a poor tee shot.

    My jury is out when it comes to Thomas’s maturity. I recall a post of his on social media where he was sitting behind Fowler and his girlfriend on a plane and childishly annoying them. Fowler and the GF weren’t impressed.

    He's human with emotions. Anyone offended by an f-bomb from a person in a high-pressure situation needs to check their delicate sensibilities.

    Someone's always offended, otherwise the announcers wouldn't have apologized.
