Potty Mouth! Wie apologizes for cursing at event

Michelle Wie apologized for her on-course behavior during the final round of the HSBC Women's Champions LPGA event in Singapore last week, according to Spencer Robinson of the Asia Pacific Golf Group.

To the embarrassment of dozens of men, women and children gathered around the tee-box at the Tanah Merah Country Club, Wie slammed her hybrid club into the ground after watching the shot veer way right. She then screamed out a four-letter expletive.

As she strode off the tee ahead of her playing partners Christina Kim and Singaporean Koh Sock Hwee, barely under her breath Wie muttered ‘f ___ing idiot’.

Following her round, Wie was contrite. She said: “I absolutely apologise for that. It’s unacceptable behaviour. Sometimes it’s just really frustrating and I was at the point where everything kind of boiled up. But you know, obviously I apologise. It was unacceptable.”

Wie finished the tournament 59th in a 60-woman field, shooing 22-over.
