Twitter, man.

It's a fantastic way to connect with athletes (and vice versa) but it can also be a contextual nightmare. David Duval threw out multiple tweets on Tuesday night announcing that he might retire (I think?) after 2014 if he doesn't start performing.

He clarified them on Wednesday:

Again, the context here is up for multiple interpretations. Maybe he feels bad about taking exemptions from younger golfers, maybe he's just tired of golf, maybe he wants to do other things.

Sometimes I wish athletes would treat Twitter announcements like this more like a news conference and less like a monologue.

Duval played in eight tournaments in 2013 and made one cut. He has already played in three tournaments in the 2013-14 season and made one cut.

He's currently ranked No. 1,521 in the world.
