ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) The PGA of America president referred to Ian Poulter as a little girl on two social media accounts Thursday evening for his comments on Nick Faldo and Tom Watson as Ryder Cup captains.

Poulter, a European stalwart with a 12-4-2 record in the Ryder Cup, was critical of both in his book, "No Limits," which was released this week.
