LOUISVILLE, KY - On Friday, Bubba Watson caused a stir on social media when his tantrums were caught by microphones on the course.

Watson was not pleased with the weather and he let go an expletive at one point, and reportedly had caddie Ted Scott tee the ball up for him at one point.

It was one of those days for Watson, who missed the green on the 16th hole and shot a one-over 72. He told Scott: “I can’t play golf, man. I got nothing.”

Many people called out Watson’s antics on Twitter, forcing him to respond on the social media site.

“Sorry for my actions today!” he wrote. “Trying to get better as a person. Thanks to all who support me.”

WOODS MISSES CUT

Tiger Woods missed the cut at a major championship for just the fifth time in his career.

Woods finished well outside the cut line after shooting a second-round 74 to go to six-over for the tournament.
