D.H. Lee let the crowd at the PGA Tour’s AT&T National in Bethesda, Md. know he was frustrated when he gave the middle finger to some fans at the 12th hole.
The 26-year-old South Korean was upset with how he was playing, as he picked up four bogeys on the back nine. He took a double-bogey 5 on the 10th hole, a bogey on the 12th and two additional bogeys on Nos. 15 and 18 to finish +4 for the day, tied for 20th.
Lee said after the round that the gesture was meant for himself rather than anyone in the crowd.
“I’m sorry for that,” he said. “No, it was just for me. My ball. It was frustration. It wasn’t aimed at anyone.”
Lee began the day in a tie for fourth and was just two shots off the lead, making the turn at even-par 36.
