On-Air Flatulence Leads to PGA’s GasGate

Is someone demolishing a sheet of bubble wrap, or ripping gas live on air?  

During Saturday’s broadcast of the PGA Championship, video evidence emerged with a prime crime at hand after viewers were subjects to a soundtrack of farts throughout the coverage. Yes, farts, plural. Always comes in 9’s, baby. 

What begins as a simple one-two rip develops into sporadic pitter-patters that make you wonder how bad this person had to go to the bathroom.

Scott Van Pelt deserves credit here for not breaking focus as the thunderous rips were sprinkled throughout the 19 seconds of coverage.  

The diegetic bowel distress didn’t stop the commentator from following Cam Smith, the golfer displayed on screen, as he finished up on the course during Saturday’s PGA championship event in South Carolina. 

Mystery as to who dealt the smoke continues to develop, with reports likely on the way of what could have caused such gassy distress to transpire. 

It’s worth clarifying that our coverage or intrigue by the scene at hand is not in any way condemning the actions. In all likelihood, this person woke up like any other fan of golf and hoped that their day would revolve solely around pure enjoyment of the PGA Tour.  

It was an innocuous fart that any sizable Denver omelet on a Saturday morning is capable of inducing, but the succeeding rips that followed suggest that a more formidable breakfast may have been at play. 

Banana pancakes … eggs benedict … corned beef hash … a chicken biscuit breakfast from Chick-Fil-A, perhaps? 

No matter whoever, or whatever, led to this on-screen distressing of jeans, we at OutKick are determined to get to the bottom of this.
