But Sunday’s final round of the PGA Championship once again showed the Jupiter resident has a problem – his competitive drive is so strong that when he becomes frustrated on the golf course, he starts dropping F-bombs.

And that problem is a bigger problem these days with all the hot mics sitting around spectator-less courses on the PGA Tour. During ESPN’s telecast, Thomas dropped the F-bomb when a birdie putt slid by the cup on the fifth hole. He said it loudly.

“Dude, you’ve got to be f—ing kidding me,” Thomas said.

Justin Thomas is a model citizen and a world-class golfer. The best in the world, according to last week’s rankings. At 27, he already has won 13 PGA Tour titles, a major (2017 PGA Championship) a …

Hard pass on this being a "problem."

I think it's a problem. Yeah, I'm in the minority. But here are some reasons why: 1. Golf is a game of control. Control the club face, backswing, downswing, etc. Cursing shows a lack of control.

Feature, not bug. 

You know, it's ok to say that you just don't "get it" and excuse yourself from the conversation.

No problem whatsoever, unless it is aimed at a competitor, fan or official I really don't care. Even then I'd be keen to understand the context before rushing to judgement.

Isn't Tiger still the leader in the clubhouse with fines for swearing anyway? ;-) 

A few rounds ago, I hit a poor tee shot, let loose the f-word before yelling "Fore."  One of my playing companions corrected me, reminding me that one typically only needs to yell "fore" after a bad shot.

Not a problem for me. Not exactly A-1-A journalism...I could barely get through the article, but based on what I did read, I wasn't convinced of the author's stance. With the exception of truly vile conduct (e.g., blatant racism, etc.) I couldn't care less what an athlete says out of frustration in the heat of competition. I'd rather witness a raw, uninhibited reaction, than "Dang it Dottie".

My 14 year old playing his online games with his friends...they all sound much worse than JT.

Yeah it doesn’t bother me either.  I also think that maybe it’s going to just have to become accepted by viewers in this current environment of sports with no live fans.  It’s happening constantly - of course it always has, but now it’s clearly heard more often - and it’s still “news” for now but before long they’re gonna just have to let it go, I think.

I think that the push back on this comes from people that wanna have their cake and eat it too, in a way. They are really enjoying all of the extra stuff we've been hearing without crowds, except the curse words that come with it. I have no problem with it at all though. I'd rather hear the players than the commentators.

I'm going to say it isn't a problem in and of itself. For example, I don't think they need to go to Justin, or whomever, and ask them to stop swearing. 

Having, typed that, I wouldn't mind at all if the broadcast had a person with the button to "drop" the curse word. Not "Beep" it mind you. I've always thought "beeping" it makes it worse. It seems to draw attention to it. I prefer when they "drop" it. They just put in a little natural background noise in place of it. 

For me, I'd prefer that. But, again, I wouldn't say it's a "problem" if they do nothing about it.

I curse so much that I think I broke the swear words around here.

Now they pass for the same as intercourse or poop.

Far be it from me to get upset at someone else. Probably ought to just avoid putting the microphone on him.

I had more of an issue with IBF having to apologize for him than the actual offense that I didn't even pick up on. If this is truly a problem the network should figure it out with a slight delay or technology.

I voted yes, although it doesn’t bother me.

IMO it is his job. I do not yell “f***” during work meetings or conference calls, or when patients can hear me.

Its his job, and it’s not a good look. He’s a good dude, and he’s getting some flack for it. I bet it doesn’t happen again.

Look at all other sports. They cuss like crazy. The difference right now is the crowds aren't there so you hear a lot more, particularly just after impact where most of the crowd noise comes. His job is to play golf, not be a saint, IMO

    • This time of year the spring peepers (small frogs) are awake and singing like crazy. The sound is almost deafening at night. It's great and let's us know that spring has sprung. Also - we're starting to see and hear the red-winged blackbirds. Another great song bird around here.
    • O'Keefes is nice. I have a jar in my office at work, and I used it daily when I actually worked at work. It was necessary due to the constant hand sanitizing, hand washing, and glove/double-glove wearing in cleanroom work. I should order a jar for home, or go pick it up. It would definitely help cracking/peeling on my thumbs and index fingers. Probably need to put on golfers tape for the blisters and hot spots on my left hand finger pads from the DTX texture, but I'd have to do a lot of taping. Drywall compound definitely sucks all the moisture out of one's hands. This is kind of what I do. I'm going to drop my compressor to 60 psi and use microbursts and see if it helps. If it still balloons, I'll slide a cake tester under the grip to break the seal before removing and adjusting.
    • Haha.....love the wise cracks, to me golf without humor for losers. But will try some of these suggestions. If I recall, didn’t Roy McLvoy have a weird shanking problem in ‘Tin Cup’?🤣
    • I realize this off topic with the shingles but "YOU DON'T WANT IT".  Yes I had chicken pox as a child and all of my vaccinations. On topic.   We have some friends that have decided not to get the vaccine.   They are up in age and anti-vaccine.  I'm sure we'll not see them again until I get the vaccine.   They have a large family and have a large group of friends and aren't concerned about getting General/Major/Colonel Covid-19.   Our other friends were in the hospital and know the virus is real and are taking it serious.  
    • This was some entertaining golf this week. Interesting course, good personalities on the leaderboard. Top notch!
