Golfer Justin Thomas Apologizes For Using Anti-Gay Slur

World No. 3 golfer Justin Thomas has apologized for using a homophobic slur that was caught by TV microphones at a PGA Tour tournament in Hawaii on Saturday.  The incident occurred after Thomas missed a par putt during the Sentry Tournament of Champions’ third round in Hawaii.  “There’s no excuse,” Thomas told the Golf Channel in an on-air apology immediately after his round at the Kapalua Plantation Golf Course.  “I’m an adult. I’m a grown man. There’s absolutely no reason for me to say anything like that.  “It’s terrible. I’m extremely embarrassed. It’s not the kind of person that I am…But unfortunately I did it and I have to own up to it and I’m very apologetic.  I deeply apologize to everybody and anybody who I offended and I’ll be better because of it,” added Thomas.  (FYI: Justin said “fa***t”)
