Golfer Justin Thomas says he will enter the program after using anti-gay slurs


Golfer Justin Thomas says he will enter the program after using anti-gay slurs Justin Thomas, the third-ranked golfer in the world, said Wednesday that he intends to undergo training after his reputation was affected this month by the use of an anti-gay slur in a Hawaii course. 


 I'll say it again ... @ JustinThomas34 is an amazing guy. 

 He took all the questions about the Hawaii incident and answered honestly. They just felt like they needed to move. That's exactly what I'm doing too. "


Thomas pronounced the ugly word after botching a putt at the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Jan. 9. The audio slur prompted Ralph Lauren to cancel his sponsorship for the golfer. 

Thomas said he respected the clothing brand's decision to cut the ties, saying it "put them in a terrible position." 


 "It's embarrassing," Thomas, 27, said at a news conference. "It's not me. It's not a word I use, but for some reason, it was there. And that's what I'm trying to figure out why it was there."

 The Kentucky-born athlete said he is prepared to enter a process to prove to himself and his sponsors that the homophobic insult does not reflect who he is, and he did not specify what the training might entail.
