Who would have thunk the actual USGA would post an open tweet to Justin Thomas saying "Justin we need to talk."

The tweet was the straw that broke the camel's back in light of more (probably totally justified) bashing on social media by Thomas over another two shot penalty handed to Adam Schenk when his caddie stood behind him in a bunker.

JT had a pop at the USGA on Twitter and used the "growthegame” hashtag......OOoooooo big mistake!!
But the USGA would never tweet back a reply, would they?

We they did.....here's what came back! WE NEED TO TALK.

Justin, we need to talk. You’ve cancelled every meeting we’ve planned with you, but we are reaching out again. We were at the first 5 events, and tournaments last year, and your tour has had a seat at the table for 7 years. We’d love nothing more than to give you a seat. Call us.

Needless to say Justin was taken aback that the Borg (the USGA) actually responded.

“It was a little shocking. It was a little upsetting just because it was inaccurate,” Thomas said of the cancelled meeting claims. “I haven’t canceled anything, especially any meetings. But it is what it is, and all I want is the best for the game of golf and the best for the sport,  and that’s what we’re going to continue to try to communicate with each  other to get that. It is unfortunate. It just was — it really hurt me.”

And that's where we stand. Beware what you tweet,  The big boys are watching. And now they're tweeting back!!
