Shane Lowry had a pretty interesting response after being caught on camera dropping an f-bomb at the Honda Classic this weekend.
The Irishman was one of many who came unstuck at the dreaded Bear Trap – otherwise known as the par-3 15th – last week, but his response drew quite a lot of attention.
You can watch it below, but be advised, it’s NSFW:
One of the commentators was quick to apologise to viewers, but Lowry seemed more relaxed about it afterwards, tweeting:
So I said a bad word…. Shoot me!

While Lowry should be mindful of his language at a televised event, perhaps broadcasters should also think twice about miking up players when they’re about to hit tee shots on notoriously difficult holes.
It seems like that’s just asking for trouble.
