Anyone happen to catch this story?

Patrick Reed mutters a self-deprecating remark 'nice 'effing 3-putt, you 'effing faggot'.
I'd speculate worse has been said over the years, but let this be a lesson to anyone in the public's eye.
Mic's and cameras are everywhere!

Yeah with the growth of the media keg... public figures need to really watch their every move!!!

We should start a public figure outreach program that rehabilitates and teaches athletes and other famous people how to act in public. hahaha.

I understand the frustration and I like the kid, he really is what golf needs ,another person with personality but while I'm fine with the self anger and rants to himself, you can't say certain stuff on the course, I know I wouldn't say those things in a PGA tournament, don't try and control the anger, control what comes out of it.

The game of golf tries to maintain a gentlemanly image. For so long, broadcasters don't show the bad sides of star players. But now, it's open-mike everywhere. We (at home) start to see more of these outbursts/languages. I agree that players should control their anger and languages. It's good for their image on the course and for their personal life off the course as well.
Oh, effing what I just said! Go blow a garden hose! :)
