More on Elkington: Golfer says tour made him take tweet down

Steve Elkington is a 51-year-old golfer with 10 PGA tour wins and one major title who doesn't mind starting a Twitter war with his colleagues or writing out racially-tinged tweets or publicly commenting on women's breasts.

Oh, and he likes to make jokes about gay football players.

That tweet came after Elkington criticized ESPN for covering Sam so heavily.

So, there you go.

Steve Elkington, homophobic golfer and hacky comedian who perhaps should put down the Twitter for a little while. Because he seems like a jerk when he's on there.

UPDATE (1:43 p.m. ET): Here's Elkington clarifying himself.

UPDATE (3:41 p.m. ET): And he just keeps going ...

Keep in mind: Elkington still told a gay joke that made fun of Sam, the man for whom Elkington is apparently rooting.
