South Korean Golfer Gets a Three-Year Ban for Flipping Off a Spectator
It'd appear that things are handled a bit differently on the Korean Tour, particularly in regard to discipline.
This past weekend, a South Korean golfer fabulously named Bio Kim lost his temper ever so briefly during a tournament.
However, this momentary lapse of reason really hurts.
Kim received a mind-blowing 36-month suspension from these rigid bastards.
Well, for this heinous act:
You may be wondering if dude kicked a child or strangled a pony immediately after that clip, but that'd be false.
Just the three-second bird.
Apparently, the protocol for this sort of thing is one full year for every second the obscene gesture is maintained.
Kim had a very human reaction to some nitwit taking a cell phone photo during his backswing.
Obviously, he could've handled it better, but this is just crazy talk.
The Internet concurs:
So in golf, the middle finger = a 3 year ban! And yet, in football - Racism is mostly overlooked, or a relatively small fine for clubs. Someone needs to have a rethink here #etiquetteviolation #inappropriatebehaviourhttps://t.co/6n1c8WNtAl— Dale Kirkpatrick (@D_RKirkpatrick) October 2, 2019
Let's not get started on NFL hypocrisy.
Of all the daft bullshit.....!!! This is like a death sentence for stealing a loaf of bread. Waaay overkill. Stupid!— Kapsy (@kapsy_tweets) October 1, 2019
Korean Tour Money Leader Bio Kim Suspended 3 Years for Obscene Gesture https://t.co/MwNkbZEaSl
At least they let him keep his middle finger.
Kim actually went on to win the tournament but was then forced to do this in a desperate plea for mercy:
Bio Kim got on his knees pleading for mercy and forgiveness for flipping the bird at a jerk.

There was none forthcoming.
And no suspension for Sergio García, either.
If only this had been North Korea, then maybe Dennis Rodman could've negotiated on his behalf.
