VIRGINIA WATER, England -- Ross Fisher, who was penalized for slow play, wasn’t the only player in trouble with the European Tour at the ISPS Handa Wales Open last week.

James Morrison, the 27-year-old who led the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth two weeks ago, faces a fine for comments he made on Twitter.

"Thanks Celtic Manor. Dump. One more round then can't get over that bridge quick enough," Morrison tweeted after his third round.

He apologized after finishing the tournament in 57th place on Sunday.

"Us as players our very grateful for all the support. Very sorry for comment," he said. "Really want to apologise -- I was very hot when I finished and didn't mean it in that context. Sorry to all involved."

European Tour officials spoke to Morrison, who expressed his regrets about his comments.

"James wishes to apologise to Sir Terry Matthews (Celtic Manor's owner) and everyone at the Celtic Manor Resort for all of the offence caused," said Tournament Director Mike Stewart. "The European Tour will be taking disciplinary action against the player."




If you don't have anything good to say or tweet, don't say anything at all... if you don't like the course don't play in the event...
