The sexual orientation of the person saying it matters, just like the gender or the race or the relationship matters in the other examples I gave.

Fair enough. I misunderstood what you were trying to say.

I thought in saying "they're no bad words" you meant that there are no bad words, so if JT didn't mean it badly, it wasn't a "bad" thing.

Maybe he should’ve stuck with the “are you f***ing kidding me?!” from the PGA. We wouldn’t be having this discussion. Or called the ball an inanimate object, or just a “piece of shit” like Happy Gilmore.

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.

So if JT comes out as gay you are ok with him saying what he said to a ball? Outrageous!

I never said anything like that.

Move along, @jmanbooyaa. You're coming off poorly here.

Yes, problem solved. Ha ha. New press release from PGA,  JT to use more appropriate curse words directed at a ball.

I have no issue with swearing on the golf course, really, but it is important not to tie JT's latest transgression in wth the poll. 

"F****t" isn't a "curse word", it's a homophobic slur.

Hm... what an odd thing to say.

There are so many other curses and obscenities he could have used to express frustration and he chose that.

Really sad on many levels.

Yeah, it’s an old topic. Was more appropriate here than the 2021 TOC topic.

I think you need to be respectful of people regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. I also think what JT said was disrespectful. He said he was sorry, and I believe him. Hopefully, this will make him aware that words can be hurtful.

This was really poor form. Who even says this? Anyway, he's miked up and it cost him a sponsor. 

Move along JT, put it behind you and stick to the much safer F-Bombs.

A lot of us could give him lessons. If he would have just said, "You sorry m***** f*****," he would still have the big horsey on his shirt.

It might have cost him more than one... he could be waiting for the other FootJoy to drop.

That would be a big shoe to fill.

I don't know much about endorsements, but despite that bit on the bottom, I don't think Thomas will be signing with Ralph Lauren again.

I've been fans of JT and Jordan Spieth for several years, at least in terms of their swings and off-course charity efforts. But the potty mouths have always been an issue for me. 

That being said, I'm disappointed in Polo and its knee-jerk reaction to what Thomas did. He made a mistake and apologized. What he did was a result of immaturity, not malice. He doesn't deserve the endorsement death penalty that the PC police like to hand out. As long as it's not part of a pattern, I say let it go. 

I draw a distinction between what JT did and what happened with Scott Piercy. While JT's was a spontaneous comment that did not single out anyone, Piercy's comment was directed a specific person (Pete Buttigieg). He took the time to compose the comment in his head, meaning it was premeditated. And the comments about Q-anon? Seriously? 

I've never owned any Polo products but if I did I would avoid future purchases based on this knee-jerk reaction. I certainly hope the Titleist and Foot-Joy don't follow Polo's lead on this.

    • What counts as a hole not finished?
    • Shot 79 today (42 front, 37 back) to break 80 for the first time. I almost turned the round into a long practice session after the second hole because the greens were aerated recently, and the surfaces were super bumpy and had multiple spots that had been repaired and were irregular. Glad I continued though. Had 14 GIR/nGIR, 27 putts, and zero penalty strokes. It was a low event round, no birdies, mostly pars with some bogeys sprinkled aroundo. I had 8 up and downs for par from the nGIR, which was the key to hitting the milestone. Also almost completed the "no sixes" challenge, with only a single six on the card, after a couple bad breaks with overhanging limbs.
    • I don’t know how much it’s used elsewhere in Europe, but here in Norway it still seems to be a requirement. Not only name the marker, but they have to approve the score before it is registered.
    • It sort of reminded me of myself! 
    • In the spirit of golfers who get on your nerves.  I have a friend I occasionally play with.  He rides in a cart with the scorecard splayed open on the steering wheel.  Insists on keeping all scores... though I prefer to keep my own in terms of how many over par I am... or under on that rare day. But after each hole he'll ask, "What did you get there?"  Even if you just did the Tiger fist pump on the green with the rest of the group cheering (including him) as you drained your birdie. So I've come to reporting a higher score when he asks.  "Bogey."  "No you didn't, you had a par."  Well, sheesh, if you know what I scored why do you have to ask?!
