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 find it comical that folks (not necessarily you) find that our society has suddenly become sensitive. We’ve always been sensitive to words and actions. Duels have been fought over remarks. Feuds hav

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

    • I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding. Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball. IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways. Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances. I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together. I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well. Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁
    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
