JUSTIN THOMAS was forced to apologize after using a homophobic slur on his tour.
The American golfer used the very offensive term “f **** t” when he missed a putt at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.
And his foul language was picked up by microphones on the course Saturday night.
The world No.3 apologized after his tour and admitted he felt “embarrassed” by his actions.
Thomas, 27, said: “It’s inexcusable. First of all, I apologize. I am an adult. I am a grown man.
“There is absolutely no reason for me to say something like that. This is terrible. I am extremely embarrassed.
“It’s not who I am, it’s not the kind of person that I am or anything that I do.
“Unfortunately, I did, and I have to admit it, and I’m very sorry.
” It’s bad. There is no other way to tell.
“I have to do better, I have to be better. It is definitely a learning experience.
“I deeply apologize to everyone I have offended, and I will be better for it. ”
The PGA Tour also criticized Thomas’ comment as “unacceptable” in a statement.
