The world No 3 ranked male golf player Justin Thomas has expressed his deep apologies for the usage of homophobic slur while playing the 3rd round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
He tendered his apology saying: “I’m extremely embarrassed. It’s not who I am” that shows his inner-heart feelings about the blunder committed by him. He uttered these deprecating words for himself when he missed a par putt on the fourth hole at Kapalua.
While speaking to the Golf Channel, Justin Thomas said: “There’s just no excuse. 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 who I am. It’s not the kind of person that I am. But it’s … unfortunately I did it and I have to own up to it and I’m very apologetic”.
Further he said that “It’s inexcusable. I’m speechless. It’s bad. There’s no other way to put it. I need to do better. I need to be better. It’s definitely a learning experience. I deeply apologize to everybody and anybody who I offended and I’ll be better because of it”
The commentators are of the view that Justin should be fined due to his bad behavior and showing non-professionalism on his part. Let’s wait and see what decision is to be taken by The PGA about the player.
