Watch Announcer Ecstatically Cheer On A Butterfly In Golf Broadcast

The usually steady sportscaster Mike Tirico got hilariously carried away by a butterfly at the Tour Championship golf tournament in Atlanta on Thursday. (Watch the video below.)

As the critter chased a Brooks Koepka birdie putt into the hole, Tirico’s broadcast took flight.

“Go get it, butterfly! Yeah! Woohoo!” he cried.

Tirico, who hosted NBC’s Tokyo Olympics coverage, gets a gold medal for his enthusiasm.

Koepka shot a 67 in the round.

MSN pointed out that butterflies have taken center stage before on the links. Last year, one was spotted pursuing a ball past the hole.
