Rory McIlroy fires shocking F-BOMB as he loses cool at US PGA

Rory McIlroy called himself a "f***ing p*ssy" after coming up short of the green with his tee shot on the drivable par-4 14th on day two of the US PGA Championship at Oak Hill. 

McIlroy let fly with his TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus Driver but as his ball sailed off towards the rough short of the green, he fired an F-bomb down the mic. 

"F***ing p*ssy," McIlroy was heard yelling at himself. 


Sky Sports Golf's Nick Dougherty stepped in quickly to apologise to viewers.

In spite of that tee shot, McIlroy chipped his ball up to seven feet and then drained the putt for a much-needed birdie as he looks to chase down the leaders.

McIlroy ended up converting a birdie on the 18th to get himself back to level par for the championship, which is just five shots off the pace. 

McIlroy's F-bomb came just minutes after World No.1 Jon Rahm fired an outrageous F-bomb of his own in the direction of the PGA of America on the par-3 11th. 


Earlier in the round, England's Tyrrell Hatton fired an F-bomb on the par-3 3rd. 

There's also been some rules incidents happening on day two.

One of which involved Phil Mickelson, and another which saw Cameron Young docked two strokes.
