US: Golfer Patrick Reed caught swearing and saying ‘faggot’ on the course

Aaron Day November 6, 2014

Golfer Patrick Reed, who is currently playing the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, was caught using homophobic language after three-putting his shot on Thursday.

While playing his 10th hole of the day, Reed three-putted for a bogey.

During the live transmission, on-course microphones picked him up saying: “Nice f***ing three-putt you f***ing faggot.”

According to Golf Channel, the PGA Tour issued a statement on Thursday morning, saying: “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.”

In April, Bubba Watson, who voiced his support for a sports analyst who said gay NBA player Jason Collins’ coming out was an “open rebellion to God,” won the Masters.
