SiriusXM PGA Tour analyst Mark Lye was fired over the weekend after comments he made on the air disparaging the WNBA.

A SiriusXM spokesperson confirmed the firing to over the weekend.

“You know, the LPGA Tour to me is a completely different tour than it was 10 years ago. You couldn’t pay me to watch, you really couldn’t, because I just couldn’t relate at all,” Lye said on SiriusXM’s PGA Tour Radio.

“It’s kind of like, you know, if you’re a basketball player, and I’m not trashing anybody so please don’t take it the wrong way. But I saw some highlights of ladies’ basketball. Man, is there a gun in the house? I’ll shoot myself than watch that.”
