ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) 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 unhappy with comments Poulter made in his book about the Ryder Cup captaincy of Nick Faldo in 2008 and Tom Watson last month at Gleneagles. Bishop was with Faldo at The Greenbrier on Thursday when he tweeted to Poulter, "Faldo's record stands by itself. Six majors and all-time RC points. Yours vs. His? Lil Girl."

In a separate posting on his Facebook page, Bishop lamented that athletes who had "lesser records or accomplishments in a sport never criticized the icons." He mentioned Watson's eight majors and 10-3-1 record in the Ryder Cup, and Faldo's six majors and record Ryder Cup points getting "bashed" by Poulter.
