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 says it was a mistake that he takes full responsibility. He apologized Sunday to anyone offended, starting with Hanse. – Associated Press
