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.

Then he needs to change that. And do it now. 

I say "Panther Piss!" as my interjection of choice when I'm angry. There's very little chance I'm going to offend a panther. 

That's just what he says when he gets upset is a terrible excuse... I mean really TERRIBLE. What if he said "Oh, go beat your wife!" When ever he got upset? Or "Kill a (insert racial slur here)!" When ever he gets upset. It's ridiculous to think "Oh that's just what he says when he's upset." 

FWIW, I usually just say my own name in exasperation. I do swear, but not in that kind of situation where I’m mad or disappointed in myself. For JT, it says a lot that he uses that word. 

I do say, “Mother Puss Bucket!” on occasion.

As far as profanity goes, I don't care at all if pros swear or otherwise vocally vent their frustration. That said, the issue here is less about profanity in general and more about the specific word used. 

There are definitely a lot of better words and choice phrases Justin Thomas could have used. Maybe next time do a throwback to an old classic that was much less controversial instead.

If you cuss just right you too can win the US Open by 15 strokes.

Its such an individual thing.  Why mic golfers and expect there would be no cussing.   It happens in every profession sports and probably more so in other sports if football players or baseball players were mic up.  
Why are we putting golfers in a different category?

Baseball players don't talk or cuss. They just spit.

I don't think we are putting golfers in a different category. At least speaking for myself. I am not offended if golfers use profanity. Similarly, I'm not offended by any other athletes using profanity either. I do think the television should "bleep it" though. There are many reasons for that. 

The thing we are putting in a different category is the specific word that JT chose.

Please Let me know which cuss words are more acceptable.

the "N" word is not a cuss word. The word JT used is not a cuss word. They are words that are specifically used towards specific groups of society in a derogatory way. 

I think most people understand social situation in that there are words you should not say and situations were certain other words you should not say at all depending on who you are or what your background is. 

Example, I cut down my cursing by 95% when I am in front of family, or when I am at my job, or when I am around my coworkers. There are words that do not exists in my vocabulary because I didn't grow up hearing them and also because I know I have no right to say them. 

Basically, it comes down to common sense.

Give "Aw shucks" a try...

I use "Pismo Beach" often as my curse word.  My dad always used that as a swear word in the car when I grew up.  It has a nice punch to it.  Oddly enough, I said it in a round one time with a family that grew up there.  Got awkward for a moment but he liked the idea that his hometown was used as a curse word. 😁

When I'm at school I say "WHAT THE FLYING FLOCK OF SEAGULLS" and it's always hilarious watching the kids' eyes get real wide the first time they hear me say it

This topic was about JT saying “f***.” This year it hasn’t been about that word. I think you’re assuming we are talking about the original topic, not the homophobic slur.

I really hope you can see the difference between using a general curse word, and using a word which is antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group.

However, if you want me to be more specific then let me illustrate through an example. Shouting something like "Aw, Shit!" in a large group of people is wrong, but it just makes you look like an under-educated or inarticulate person, or possible somebody who just has trouble controlling their emotions. Profanity is the linguistic crutch of the inarticulate. It makes you look bad, but not really that big of a deal. By the same token shouting N****r or F****t in a large group of people makes you look like a BIGOT! 

Can you see the difference?
