Golfer flips the bird on live TV

D.H. Lee sank three birdies on Saturday and gave out one more in

frustration.

Lee gave the middle finger after firing his approach shot long

at the par-4 12th hole at Congressional during the third round of

the AT&T National. He made bogey on the hole.

The 25-year-old South Korean appeared to be reacting to a fan in

the gallery when a CBS camera caught the footage.

But he told the Golf Channel that wasn’t the case.

“I’m sorry for that,” Lee said. “No, it

was just for me. My ball. It was frustration. It wasn’t aimed

at anyone.”

Lee began the day two strokes off the lead, but shot a 3-over 75

in his third round and dropped into a tie for 20th.
