Longtime ESPN host Michael Wilbon has a suggestion for the sport of golf – or, rather, how the sport of golf is televised.
At the Ryder Cup last month, United States star Brooks Koepka got into it with some rules officials on the course. Koepka could be heard getting upset at the rules officials, who refused to give him an unplayable lie.
Koepka had a NSFW message for the rules officials.
“If I break my wrist, it’s on f—ing both of you guys,” he said.
Wilbon used that incident as an example for why the sport of golf doesn’t need to have boom mics on the course. From Morning Read:
Wilbon also talked about the Brooks Koepka/Bryson DeChambeau hug at the Ryder Cup’s post-even press conference. He said it doesn’t mean anything, but their actions going forward will be what matters. Wilbon, a self-professed “Brooks guy” said the profanity Koepka directed at a rules official on Ryder Cup Saturday was just Koepka being a competitor. The real issue, according to Wilbon, is that boom mics have no place on the field or in the fairway.
Most fans, of course, would disagree. The Koepka incident, while profane, was incredibly entertaining for most viewers.
It’s difficult to see golf getting rid of that.
