After hitting a poor shot in the third round at the AT&T National at Congressional last weekend, Tour player D.H. Lee gave the universal sign for disgust: he flipped the bird. However, he told Golf Channel's Jason Sobel after his round that the finger was meant for himself, not the fans in the gallery.
Following a wayward approach shot on the 12th hole during Saturday’s third round at the AT&T National, D.H. Lee was caught by television cameras gesturing with his middle finger in an apparent expression toward the nearby gallery.
After the round, though, Lee contended that the gesture was meant for himself rather than anyone behind the ropes.
“I’m sorry for that,” said the 25-year-old South Korean. “No, it was just for me. My ball. It was frustration. It wasn’t aimed at anyone.”
