http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gifDuring today's Masters (http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/tag/Masters/)broadcast, CBS announcer Bobby Clampett referred to Chinese golfer Liang Wen-Chong as "the chinaman."

According to CBS spokeswoman LeslieAnne Wade, Clampett later apologized on the Masters webcast.

Clampett has been working Amen Corner the last two days, and his commentary can be heard both online and on DirecTV. He used the "chinaman" slur while describing Liang's round and explaining that he will not make the cut.

There is no word yet on whether Clampett will be disciplined by CBS. Clampett's slur comes three months after Golf Channel announcer Kelly Tilghman (http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/tag/KellyTilghman/) was suspended for two weeks for saying that if young players want to beat Tiger Woods (http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/tag/TigerWoods/), they should "lynch him in a back alley (http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/2008/01/10/video-kelly-tilghman-says-of-tiger-woods-lynch-him-in-a-back-a/)."
