The USGA will meet with Justin Thomas this week after the world No. 3 criticized the organization on Twitter over some of the game’s latest rules changes.

Thomas ripped the USGA on Saturday, during The Honda Classic, and reportedly will continue the debate offline.

John Bodenhamer, the USGA’s director of championships, told Golf Channel that he will meet with Thomas, and make a better effort to explain some of the more controversial new rules.

Three rules-related controversies swelled up at PGA National, including Thomas not able to replace a bent club; Adam Schenk penalized for his caddie lining up in the wrong place; and Alex Cejka was DQ’d for using an oversized greens-reading book.
