Dubai - Lee Westwood knew he was in trouble when his mother gave him a call after his final round at the Qatar Masters.

VIDEO: Lee Westwood swears on live TV

He was caught on television swearing after his tee shot on the 16th tee and the first person to call him on it was his mother. After his round of 3-under 69 for a tie for 12th, he said his mother heard the profanity and suggested he apologise.

Westwood promptly turned to Twitter to do just that.

He tweeted "Sorry about swearing on the 16th tee. Came off like a rocket and thought it was going further! Wash my mouth out! Perils of live tv."

In Dubai this week, Westwood refused to say what he had said, only that "there are worse words actually."

    The best and funniest ever video of someone swearing on a golf course, is a video of Ernie Els playing in Dubai a few years ago (see link below). Wait for the commentators remarks afterwards - priceless! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXDMB73cq8k

    I can't blame the guy being a golfer myself, it's a sport that can drive you to the brink of insanity, a bit of swearing releases the pressure and saves you from a heart attack.
