Jeez, this dude just doesn’t stop does he? Guess who sent another inappropriate tweet again? Non other than the insane in the membrane loon himself, Steve Elkington who on Tuesday sent a tweet making a joke about ESPN’s coverage of University of Missouri defensive end and soon to be NFL draft pick Michael Sam who openly came out gay a couple of weeks ago. Elkington, of course deleted the tweet. You can read the tweet below.
Yahoo Sports’ Shane Bacon of the Devil Ball Golf blog spoke to Elkington about why he deleted the tweet. It was none other than the PGA Tour itself.
I reached out to Steve Elkington about the controversial tweets he deleted. He told me, “tour asked me to.”

Elkington sent a tweet back to Shane Bacon saying how he’s rooting for Sam.
@shanebacon I'm for Sam I'm against ESPN telling me he's gay….
— Steve Elkington (@elkpga) February 25, 2014
However, he sent another tweet that rubbed some of his followers the wrong way.
It goes back to "a ball hit an oriental spectator".There's no oriental spectators..There just spectators.."like m Sam…He's just an athlete
— Steve Elkington (@elkpga) February 25, 2014
Bacon spoke to the PGA Tour about the situation and he tweeted out their official statement. Here’s the full statement from the PGA Tour on Elkington’s tweet – “Under our regulations, conduct unbecoming a professional includes public commentary that is clearly inappropriate or offensive. With respect to this matter, and consistent with our longstanding policy, we do not comment on player disciplinary matters.”
So now, Elkington’s taking heat from fans and now the PGA Tour on the situation. I’m personally very happy for Michael Sam and I hopes he gets drafted and enjoys a successful career in the NFL. In Elkington’s case, he’s just another dude in the line of big mouth golfers such as Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter and Rory Sabattini with Elkington probably being the biggest tool of all because only he isn’t afraid to say something very controversial, no matter how much heat he takes. Get your head out of your butt homie! You do realize that you have over 60,000 Twitter followers that read your stuff right?

You want more nasty arguments? Well you got them! Ian Poulter and Steve Elkington had a bit of words towards each other on Twitter and it makes you wonder since both of these guys are quite expressive, who started it? Well, none other than Steve Elkington and it shouldn’t be a surprise. Sure, Poulter has his moments but Elkington is more of a tool in my personal opinion and has been known to say some crazy crap on Twitter and some tweets could just be either about football or he’s chatting with fellow PGA Tour pro Pat Perez. A fan had asked Elkington about Ian Poulter and Elkington responded of course and of course Poulter shot back which also isn’t surprise because as we know, Poulter isn’t afraid to give his opinion HOWEVER, he doesn’t seem quite like a tool like Elkington is. As I’ve written a bit earlier, Elkington went on Twitter and made fun of a helicopter crash that occurred in Scotland about a month ago and now he’s already back for more. The moment you’ve been waiting for. The tweets. Enjoy!

Actually @elkpga I haven't blocked you I just don't follow tools. You can give me a lesson in Scotland if you fancy. I will bring the fans.
— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 4, 2014
I'm talking about you & adding your twitter name in @elkpga. Instead of talking about people behind there backs without twitter name.
— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 4, 2014
Even a fan stepped in and supported Poulter in the feud.

Fan favorite and two-time major champion John Daly is known for toughness and coolness out on the course and is also widely regarded as the greatest hitter off the tee in PGA Tour history (Only Jack Nicklaus is considered better). But one thing that he fears is one thing that most of us fear. Snakes. On November 25th, JD got a rude awaking from a slithery little friend in South Africa and he had to get some snake exterminator dudes to clear the place of the snake. According to JD on his Twitter, it’s supposed to be a Mozambique spitting cobra and can spit venom on its prey. Cobras are believed to be the second most dangerous creatures in the world behind mosquitoes (Yes, mosquitoes). I’d say John doesn’t look to happy in the picture below now does he?

I don’t blame him though, I’d freak out too but anybody that knows me knows that I have a fear of spiders. Although I think spiders are quite interesting creatures, I just can’t deal with them personally but I’ll watch them on TV, sure! As long as they aren’t in the same room as me then I’m good. As you saw on tweet, he has a phobia for snakes and I’m sure he really flipped once he knew what kind of snake it was. Heck, I’d be terrified if I EVER saw a spider spit ANYTHING out of its mouth! Fortunately, John’s OK and he’s ready for more golf action, you the man JD!

With Thanksgiving Upon us, I thought it was only fitting to get a little laughter into our souls before we enjoy the family, friends and grub and the good folks over at GolfDigest.com cooked up a nice little “viral moment” contest which featured some of the funnest moments of 2013. In the blue corner, we have Sammy the Squirrel! In the red corner, we have Anything that Miguel Angel Jimenez does! In the green corner, we have Jason Dufner squeezing his wife’s booty! Finally, in the yellow corner, we have Dufnering! Who won? Well, let’s just say it involves a certain major champion and his wife. Yup, that’s right, Jason Dufner grabbing his wife’s booty was voted as the best viral moment of 2013. Way to go Duff! Even on the first four comments on Golf Digest’s Facebook page voted for the almighty Duff’s booty squeeze as the winner as shown in the picture below.
So congratulations to Jason Dufner for his bold move on the wifey and we can’t forget how awesome he was at the PGA Championship now can we? Rounding out the final three nominees, Dufnering finished second, anything Miguel does finished third and Sammy the Squirrel finished last. For those of you who missed the almighty Duff’s squeeze, check out the video below courtesy of YouTube user ReporterofTruth!
