(NewsCore) - An anchor on the Golf Channel made an embarrassing slip when referring to Tiger Woods withdrawal from The Players Championship in Florida on Sunday, TMZ reported.
Woods, who was playing in his third tournament since returning from his self-imposed sex scandal exile that lasted nearly five months, blamed a bulging disk in his upper back for his decision to pull out of the $9.5 million tournament.
But while reporting on the withdrawal of Woods, the female anchor instead blamed a "bulging d**k."
"He has been playing with a neck injury for about a month and thinks it could be a bulging d**k, disc in his upper back," she can be heard saying in the clip which has already been posted on YouTube.
ESPN’s Steve Levy made the same blooper in 1995 when reporting that New England Patriots cornerback Maurice Hurst was out with a bulging disc.
His co-anchor Keith Olberman couldn't stop laughing and was in tears by the time they took a commercial break.
