Golfer Kevin Kisner gave us what could go down as an all-time hot-mic moment after the United States clinched a Presidents Cup win.
In the handshake line, Kisner had a few playful words for some of his opponents, specifically KH Lee and Si Woo Kim.
It’s a little hard to hear, but Kisner first calls Lee the “most handsome man in America.” That was nice of him to say, wasn’t it?
Yeah, well it was just a wind-up for the howitzer he was about to shoot at Kim.
Kisner called him “the ugliest motherf-cker,” which got a huge laugh out of the South Korean golfer.
That’s a guy who thinks ahead. Using one thing he says in the handshake line to tee up the next line? Genius.
Kisner was even in a joking mood after dropping his round to Christiaan Bezuidenhout, though by that point it didn’t matter, as the US had already locked up a W.
It’s worth noting that this was also a great showing from the broadcast crew. It was smart to stick their noses — and cameras and microphones — in there for the handshakes. We need more of that in sports.
Not handshakes, necessarily, but players mic’d up during handshakes.
