Donald apologizes for Twitter blunderBy Doug Ferguson
NORTON, Massachusetts – Luke Donald has apologized for criticizing golf course architect Gil Hanse in a tweet that was meant to be private.
Donald made bogey on the par-5 18th hole at the TPC Boston, where Hanse reconfigured the green with severe slopes off the edges. He thought he was sending a direct message Saturday night, but instead the very public tweet started with Donald’s cell phone number and then said, “Gil Hanse is a (expletive). Haha.”
Within minutes, Donald deleted both tweets.
Donald said it was a mistake that he takes full responsibility. He apologized Sunday to anyone offended, starting with Hanse.
He also received countless phone calls after he published his number. Donald said, “That’s what I deserve.”
