D.H. Lee let the crowd at the AT&T National in Bethesda, Md. get the best of him Saturday when he gave the middle finger to some fans at the 12th hole. 

It was clear that Lee was upset with how he was playing as he picked up four bogeys on the back nine and tied for 20th after finishing +4 for the day.

The South Korean started the day tied for fourth place and was two shots off the lead before things went downhill for him on the back nine. 

I'm sure he didn't mean to upset anyone and probably thought he took it a little too far. Or maybe he did mean it. Either way, he was still caught on camera.

I wonder what would have happened if someone gave the crowd at Merion the finger? But then again, it couldn't have happened because the Philly fans there were so well behaved at that event, for once.
