ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. - Ted Bishop was ousted Friday as president of the PGA of America over a sexist tweet and Facebook post directed at Ian Poulter.Bishop was irritated by remarks Poulter made in his book on the Ryder Cup captaincy of Nick Faldo in 2008 and Tom Watson this year. He referred to Poulter as Lil Girl on Twitter when stacking up Poulters feats next to Faldo. In a Facebook post, he noted that Watson (with eight majors) and Faldo (with six majors and the Ryder Cup record for most points) were getting bashed by Poulter.Really? Sounds like a little school girl squealing during recess. CMON MAN! he wrote.The PGA of America board voted Friday to remove him, meaning Bishop will not be invited to future PGA Championships and Ryder Cups, or any other courtesies extended to past presidents. He is the first PGA president to be ousted. Bishop had one month left on his two-year term.Bishop, who has two daughters, apologized to Poulter and anyone else I might have offended in a statement.But the head pro from Indiana went down swinging.Bishop said his fellow PGA officers asked him to resign Friday and he refused, wanting instead to apologize in person to the board and let the process run its course.The board heard me out and then voted to impeach me, he said. That is the due process and I respect that, as painful as it might be.In removing Bishop as president, the PGA of America board said the remarks were inconsistent with associations policies.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.The PGA of America has 27,000 members, about 1,100 of them women. Bevacqua said in a telephone interview that he received a lot of negative feedback from all types of sources, internal and external. He declined to specify whether PGA female members were part of that.Bishop was irritated by comments Poulter made in his book released this week about the Ryder Cup captaincy of Faldo in 2008 and Watson this year at Gleneagles. Bishop was with Faldo at The Greenbrier on Thursday when he tweeted to Poulter, Faldos record stands by itself. Six majors and all-time RC points. Yours vs. His? Lil Girl.The Facebook post was even stronger. Bishop deleted both Thursday evening and said in an email to The Associated Press that I could have selected some different way to express my thoughts on Poulters remarks.Derek Sprague, expected to be voted in as the next president at the Nov. 22 annual meeting, was appointed the interim president. Paul Levy will handle the roles as vice-president and secretary until the election.Bishop has been one of the most outspoken presidents of the PGA of America. But his social media rant got him into trouble.This is a classic example of poor use of social media on my part and if I had the chance to hit the delete button on the things that I sent out yesterday, I would without hesitation, Bishop said. The PGA of America asked me to avoid any interaction with the media in the past 24 hours and that is why I did not issue a formal and public apology, which I have wanted to do since early this morning.Bishop described the consequences as drastic, but that he has to live with his mistake.Today, all I have left is my PGA membership and that will always mean the world to me, Bishop said. He is president of Legends Golf Club in Franklin, Indiana.Suzy Whaley, a teaching pro from Connecticut who qualified to play a PGA Tour event in Hartford in 2003, is among three PGA members running for secretary at the Nov. 22 election. If she wins, Whaley would be in line to be PGA president in 2018.Whaley said she found Bishops remarks to be insulting.I was extremely disappointed and they were definitely sexist, Whaley said in a telephone interview. Im of 100 per cent belief that we need to empower young girls. Asked if she complained to the PGA officers, Whaley said, I didnt have to do that.The PGA of America took incredibly swift action and are taking this extremely seriously, Whaley said. Obviously, its critical that we are inclusive.Poulter was on a plane to China when Bishop posted his remarks and wasnt aware of them until he landed and found his phone filled with messages.Is being called a lil girl meant to be derogatory or a put down? Poulter said in a statement. Thats pretty shocking and disappointing, especially coming from the leader of the PGA of America.Bishops boldest move as president was to pick Watson as the U.S. captain, saying he was tired of the Americans losing. But the move backfired when Watsons heavy-handed style didnt mesh with a younger generation. Watson, 65, was the oldest captain in Ryder Cup history.Poulter in his book said that Watsons decision-making completely baffles me. He was referring to benching Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley for both sessions Saturday. He also was critical of Faldo for his commentary on Golf Channel during the Ryder Cup that Sergio Garcia was useless in 2008. Faldo was captain of the only European team to lose in the last 15 years, and Poulter wrote, So whos useless? I think Faldo might need to have a little look in the mirror.Davis Love III described Bishop as a friend and a great supporter of golf and said he would not remember his presidency for this incident. Among other things, the PGA joined up with the LPGA Tour to help pay for its oldest major. The Womens PGA Championship will be sponsored by KPMG, which will use the week to host a major conference for women executives.I have said things in my passion for the Ryder Cup that I wish came out differently, Love said. We all make mistakes on social media. Braves Ender Inciarte Jersey . -- Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera has a broken bone below his right eye after being struck by a bad-hop grounder, sidelining the star slugger for at least a week with opening day on deck. Braves John Smoltz Jersey .

Braves Luiz Gohara Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork. Braves Brad Brach Jersey . The Raptors two leading scorers were never able to co-exist the way they hoped or the team had envisioned, but individually DeRozan was thriving, in the midst of a career season.NICE, France -- Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann staked his claim for a World Cup starting spot with his first international goal for France, only for midfielder Victor Caceres to do likewise and earn Paraguay a 1-1 draw with an 89th-minute header Sunday in Les Bleus penultimate warm-up game before heading to Brazil. Griezmann has impressed since recently breaking into the team and the substitute put the hosts ahead in the 82nd minute with an assured finish, curling the ball into the right corner after collecting it on the left side of the penalty area. France had the majority of possession but Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud missed several chances and failed to add to his international tally after scoring twice against Norway in a 4-0 win on Tuesday night. "Were not going to win all of our games 4-0," Deschamps said. "We made the breakthrough after creating a lot of chances against a team defending deep in numbers. We dropped too deep and they equalized." Deschamps rested striker Karim Benzema and winger Franck Ribery, who has a back injury. French media have reported that he could be doubtful for the World Cup. "We will do everything we can for him to be ready for the Jamaica game next Sunday," Deschamps said, referring to Frances last friendly before going to Brazil. Deschamps made three changes from the NNorway game, with Loic Remy replacing Griezmann on the left wing, Bacary Sagna taking Mathieu Debuchys slot at right back and Hugo Lloris returning in goal.dddddddddddd Remy had Frances first chance, side-footing wide after Mathieu Valbuena had played him in down the left side of the penalty area. Giroud had the next chance, using his body well to shield the ball, before spinning and hitting a low shot that was blocked. Lloris was called into action midway through the first half when he gathered a low shot from veteran striker Roque Santa Cruz. France hit back moments later and midfielder Paul Pogba drilled a shot just wide, and then Giroud held the ball up down the right before floating a cross over to Remy, whose scissor-kick volley flew wide. Remy and Giroud combined well throughout the match, and Giroud headed wide from Remys cross at the start of the second half. Giroud then crossed from the right only for Valbuena to nod the ball wide. Valbuena had set up Giroud for a headed goal against Norway, and almost did so again only for goalkeeper Anthony Silva to tip the forwards looping header over the crossbar. From Valbuenas corner, Silva saved yet another Giroud header. After Caceres scored with his first goal in 55 appearances for Paraguay, Giroud almost netted the winner right at the end as his astute chip went just over. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
