PGA Prez Fired for Calling Poulter "Little Girl"

Oh boy...or girl. Haha!

Sorry for the bad jokes folks, just waking up to do the morning roundup.

Late Friday, the PGA of America removed Ted Bishop as their president after Bishop tweeted that PGA pro Ian Poulter was a "Little Girl" and then followed it up with a Facebook post bashing Poulter by saying he sounded like a "Little Girl squealing at recess"...

The exchange began shortly after Poulter's book about his Ryder Cup experiences was released during the week. In it, Poulter made some comments Bishop did not like about 2008 Euro Ryder Cup captain Nick Faldo and US 2014 captain Tom Watson.

And the war of words began...

Bishop has since made the rounds, apologizing for the social media posts and has since deleted them. But it was too late.

The PGA, after asking him to resign early Friday, went ahead and voted to impeach Bishop after he refused to resign, wanting to apologize to the PGA of America board in person.

PGA Chief Executive Pete Bevacqua said this; "The PGA of America understands the enormous responsibility it has to lead this great game and to enrich lives in our society through golf," PGA chief executive Pete Bevacqua said in a statement. "We must demand of ourselves that we make golf both welcoming and inclusive to all who want to experience it, and everyone at the PGA of America must lead by example."
