"Always beware of the live mic": Poulter unleashes on first tee

There seemed to be a slight wind blowing in on the first hole.

Unfortunately for golfer Ian Poulter, the PGA Tour has mics covering the entire premises and in a hilarious moment, he was caught letting out a fart on live TV during the final round of the Travellers Championship. 

As Greg Chalmers teed off on the first hole Sunday morning, Poulter very audibly let one rip just as he had finished his swing. The broadcast captured the fart in vivid detail, and the golfers were heard laughing immediately after.

“Did you get that?” Poulter asked.

“Stay over there,” Chalmers joked in response. “Is that supposed to be more silent than that?”

Poulter admitted his actions on Twitter, tweeting: “3 club wind this morning on the first tee. Always beware of the live mic.”

The PGA Tour had placed mics on players since they resumed play this month, a new wrinkle added to broadcasts since there are no fans in attendance at events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
