PGA Exec Calls Ian Poulter 'Little School Girl': PGA of America President Ted Bishop, upset by criticism of past Ryder Cup captains Nick Faldo and Tom Watson by Ian Poulter in his new book, called Poulter a "lil girl" and "little school girl" in social media posts. Bishop wrote on a Facebook post that athletes with "lesser records or accomplishments in a sport never criticized the icons" and then said of Poulter, "Really? Sounds like a little school girl squealing during recess. C'mon man!" He later deleted the posts and apologized. Poulter's response: "Is being called a 'lil girl' meant to be derogatory or a put down That's pretty shocking and disappointing, especially coming from the leader of the PGA of America."

Totally unacceptable: the PGA isn't supposed to acknowledge the existence of women. The idea they exist and have opinions is abhorrent.

The PGA has removed Bishop from office. (He only had a month left to go in his term, so perhaps he felt as though he could cut loose a bit.)

SERVPRO is proud to be the Official Cleanup and Restoration Company of the PGA TOUR.

Hopefully, someone in a dark blazer at PGA HQ has their 800 number.
