Justin Thomas uses anti-gay slurs after missing a knockout
Justin Thomas wishes he could get Mulligan.
The PGA Tour star called himself homophobia on Saturday during the third round of the Sentry Championship in Kabalua, Hawaii.
Thomas uttered the spoiler in the fourth hole after he lost a 4 foot equal and was caught on a golf channel microphone.
The 27-year-old Thomas, who won the PGA Championship and 13 events on the PGA Tour, apologized when he found out that his slander was captured on TV after his tour.
“There is no excuse.” Thomas told The Golf Channel after his tour, “I am an adult, I am an adult man.” “There is absolutely no reason to say anything like that. It is terrible. I’m so embarrassed. Not who I am. He is not the type of person I am. But … unfortunately, I did and I have to admit and I deeply apologize.
Thomas pledged that he would learn from this accident.

“As I said, it cannot be justified. I am speechless. There is no other way to put it.” Thomas said. I need to do better. I need to be better. It is definitely a learning experience. I deeply apologize to anyone and everyone I offended and I will be better for it. “
Thomas stands at under 17, tied for fifth, four strokes behind third-round leaders Ryan Palmer and Harris English.
