Called Himself A Banned Word
By Ted Holmlund – January 9, 2021 | 11:13pm
Justin Thomas wishes he could get a mulligan.
The PGA Tour star called himself a homophobic slur Saturday during the third round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii.
Thomas uttered the slur on the fourth hole after missing a 4-foot putt for par, and he was caught on a Golf Channel microphone.
The 27-year-old Thomas, who has won the PGA Championship and 13 PGA Tour events, was apologetic when he discovered his slur was caught on TV after his round.
