Washington (CNN) - NBC is calling it a mulligan. During the Sunday broadcast of the final round of golf's U.S. Open coverage the broadcast showed a taped vignette at the beginning of the show.
It featured children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance but omitted them saying the phrase "under God, indivisible."
The video montage showed historic golf footage, patriotic imagery, and landmarks from the nation's capital because this year's tournament was taking place at Congressional Country club just outside Washington.
The rest of the children's recitation of the pledge was presented in full.

The Church of England cannot refuse to appoint bishops simply because they are gay, but it can insist that they remain celibate, the denomination's lawyers have told it.
It would be wrong for boards appointing bishops to take account "of the fact that a candidate had identified himself as of gay sexual orientation," says the legal advice, which the Church of England published Monday.
But church rules do bar anyone in a sexual relationship outside marriage from becoming a bishop - which implies that a gay man can become a bishop only if he is celibate.
