Patrick Reed Three-Putted A Green And Then Was Caught On Camera Calling Himself A Gay Slur
Ooooof! Calling yourself a “fucking faggot” on live TV after three-putting a green is not a good look for America’s Ryder Cup bright spot, Patrick Reed. It’s not a good look for anyone in general, really. Don’t do that, gang. Use other words. There are a ton of them.
This moment of weakness and stupidity by Patrick Reed happened during the live coverage of the 2014 WGC-HSBC Championship on Golf Channel last night. The PGA TOUR has since commented and on top of whatever apologies the public demands from him, Reed will be facing a hefty fine.
“The PGA Tour Conduct Unbecoming regulations prohibit the use of obscene language on the golf course. The PGA Tour will deal with this matter internally in accordance with its regulations.”
Reed has since apologized on Twitter.
I’m sorry for using offensive language today in China. My passion to play well got the best of me and my word choice was unacceptable.
