Donald unhappy with Hanse’s redesigned 18th green at TPC Boston, calls him a cock

Luke Donald made it pretty clear Saturday night he was not a fan of Gil Hanse's redesign of the 18th green at TPC Boston.

Donald wrapped his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship at the closing par-5, dropping a shot there after hitting what he described as his best shot of the day. Afterward, he took to Twitter to share his displeasure with how his shot was rewarded.



Before it was deleted forever, however, Shane Bacon caught it and put a screen capture on Dogs That Chase Cars.

"Nothing quite like hitting my best shot of the day into the last and walking off with a bogie (sic), what a terribly re-designed green #sourtaste," Donald tweeted.

He then shared a phone number from the 847 area code - his? - which covers the Illinois area.

Then, likely to draw a fine from the PGA Tour, he called Hanse a derivative of the word "rooster." Those last two tweets have since been deleted.
