Swearing on live broadcast has been entertaining audiences since the birth of live television. Shane Lowry joined the club of golfers who have been busted throwing some finable language around as he played in the Honda Classic. The 28-year-old is ranked 23rd in the world and finished T17 on one over par.
“One of the reasons that Irish fans love Lowry so much is that he has an everyman quality that is very endearing. He likes sports and having a good time just like the rest of us,” writes Balls.ie. This is a very relatable situation for many and it perfectly leads to the most awkward commentator reaction. Their insistence on completely glossing over the f-bombs was just comedy gold. Never change Shane, never change.
“Ach.. ye fookin’ idiot. FOOK!” No need to apologize, NBC, what Shane Lowry said was just fine pic.twitter.com/KaQjl9oCIC
