It may be one of the most awkward moments in Golf Channel history.

Second round leader Matt Every was being interviewed during the Friday golf telecast by the Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman after he finished with a 64, setting the 36-hole pace with a 10-under par 130 at the Sony Open.

After some questions about his round, Tilghman brought up Every's July 2010 arrest on marijuana possession charges.

After stammering around some awkward responses, Every dropped this major bomb to Tilghman:

"There's a lot worse stuff going on out here than what I got in trouble for," Every told Tilghman.

Tilghman, seemingly stunned, missed the golden opportunity for the perfect followup question:

"LIKE WHAT?" She should have responded.

Every was given a 90-day suspension by the PGA Tour following his arrest in 2010.

When Tilghman asked about that, he simply said: "I'm still the same guy."

Nick Faldo, the analyst on the broadcast, didn't let Every's comments go unnoticed.

"I don't think he did himself any favors," Faldo said matter of factly after hearing Every's comments.

The question now will be the tour's response to Every's claim.

Worse stuff than alleged marijuana possession?

Not sure we've heard the end of this one.
