He did not hurl the word faggot at anyone, but to him self. Where to we get off on policing our own thoughts or private conservations to ourselves. Sure he was miked and should not have used the word for others to hear. He appears to be critizing his perfomance or the ball. This type of outcry and reaction is exactly why the right hates us.

He called himself a "faggot" for being such a failure and missing a 4-foot putt.
The point is not that he called himself a "faggot" vs. calling someone else a "faggot."
The point is that it's an extremely negative label.
The commentators heard it and said: "Really unhappy with that one." They should have said something about this guy saying "faggot."
I don't understand how, on a gay comment board, so many excuses are being made for this.

And all these "slurs" always beg the question: similar to the N word, if he actually was one, is it then ok for him to use it? Can a lesbian call herself a D but the rest of us can't? Asking for a friend.

Here's Golfweek.USAToday's rundown of recent homophobic slurs caught on the professional golf tour:
Besides Justin Thomas,
[quote] PGA Tour veteran Scott Piercy lost two major sponsors 10 months ago as a result of controversial posts he shared on Instagram. One was a homophobic meme of former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg and the other referenced QAnon, an ultra-conservative conspiracy theory about a secret plot against President Donald Trump.
[quote] At the WGC-HSBC event in China in 2014, Patrick Reed, after a three-putt, was heard on camera dropping the F-word twice as well as a homophobic slur.

Completely off the mark and yet again blaming gay men for anything that happens to them.
He said it because he associates being shitty at something with gay men. To him, gay men are useless. It has nothing to do with being attracted to men. It has everything to do with people associating the worst qualities that any human can have with being gay.

But seriously, I wonder what would have happened if he hadn’t run from it. What if he didn’t act like he had just shot Jesus but admitted it was a common thing to say for guys like him. That he knows it is wrong, is working on it and is sorry that (not if) he offended people.
Bet he would have kept some sponsors. Of course, he might have kept some of them if he had responded “yeah, I said it. Get over it for Christ’s sake.”
