Golf is a sport in which fans often remain silent while professionals are about to make a shot, an attitude that denotes respect for the players. However, the number of people who usually witness tournaments usually generates a constant background murmur that prevents hearing some sounds. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, most tournaments that are being played in different parts of the planet are held without the audience and this means that television microphones can capture all the details.

This context played against Ian Poulter during his performance in the Travelers Championship, who in one of the holes could not stand and suffled the escape of a flatulence. The PGA Tour cameras were recording at that instant so the episode went viral.

Luckily, the British golfer took it the best way and barely suffered the eschatological accident, joked with one of his colleagues waiting his turn: "Did you get that?" Australian Chalmers replied, "Stay there Wasn't that supposed to be quieter?"

Upon learning that the video had gone viral, Poulter wrote on his social media, "It was a little windy first thing this morning," to which his Ryder Cup partner Lee Westwood replied, "You were very solid."

American Dustin Johnson determined on Sunday with a card with 67 strokes, three low torque, to total 261 hits (-19) and win in the PGA Tour golf tournament Travelers Championship, played in Connecticut despite   the coronavirus pandemic.

The former world number one signed his first tour conquest since February 2019, after starting the day two shots from third-round leader Brendon Todd to stand firm and reassert the lights he showed on Saturday with a round of 61 strokes.

Johnson has won at least one tournament in each of the 13 seasons andn who has been on the PGA Tour, a feat matched only by an elite group of players that includes Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino and Tiger Woods.

"Obviously it's a big streak and every time you mention it with those names it's good," Johnson said. "I'm proud of myself for continuing the streak and I want to keep it that way, but it's been a long time between victories, I hope it doesn't take that long until the next one."
