SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports’ Steve DiMeglio dissects the historic course which last hosted the U.S. Open in 2004. When Fox Sports’ audio cut out briefly during coverage of Friday’s second round of the U.S. Open, that was the least of the network’s worries. During the broadcast on FS1 on Friday afternoon, microphones inadvertently picked up two fans talking about sex in explicit and offensive terms. According to Awful Announcing, Fox announcer Joe Buck was commenting on a shot by Patrick Reed when the audio picked up two male fans talking about sex. After their voices cut out, Buck picks up with his golf commentary without missing a beat. As expected with thousands on hand at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, yells from the crowd were pretty raucous during the action this week.
On Friday afternoon, a man impersonating Donald Trump was thrown out of a hospitality tent after yelling greetings at golfers.
Well, that was another exciting day in the world of golf. I am kind of sorry that TIGER missed the cut, though.
