Masters viewers got more than they bargained for as one golfer was caught dropping F-bombs – but he was hit by karma after a slip down a slope.
Bill Horschel finished the third day at the historic tournament on +4, only just making the cut for the last round.
He put in a score of 73, two worse off than his Friday performance but three better than the opening day.
But the American was clearly still frustrated as the cameras overheard him swearing on the Augusta course.
Making his way around the greens with golf legend Phil Mickelson, he managed to hit the water on the 13th-hole.
Horschel’s second drive on the par-5 hole landed in Rae’s Creek, a small stream of water is situated at the bottom of a steep hill which has the putting green at the top of it.
And he vented his frustrations by saying: “What a s*** bounce. What a s*** f***ing bounce.”
But the 34-year-old got on with it, whipping his shoes and socks off to start his attempt at recovering the ball.
Unfortunately for Horschel, though, karma decides to strike for the golfer’s bad language as he slips down the slope.
The Masters competitor manages to see the funny side, though, as he asks Mickelson to check for any marks on his white trousers and smiles.
Speaking after finishing the 18 holes on Saturday, the American detailed the event with: “I said, ‘How bad is that grass stain going to be’.
“He said ‘there may not be one there’ and he looked and said ‘yeah, there’s one there, sorry, buddy’.”

But the incident did end on a positive note for Horschel as he managed to chip the ball back onto the green from the water.
He added: “It was completely submerged, and when I say completely submerged, I’d say it was probably a couple inches under the water.
“Fortunately enough, I’ve hit a few shots from the water just for fun in my lifetime, and I understand that the ball will come out as long as I hit it hard enough.
“Phil was impressed by that. I guess that’s my highlight of the day.’’
