Due to inclement weather, the PGA Tour suspended the Players Championship yesterday afternoon and then sent out an ill-advised tweet that – to sum it up – basically said, “We’re closed. Get out. No refunds.”

The initial tweet, sent at 4:32 pm (EST), was as generic as can be and should have sufficed: “Play has been suspended for the day.”

A follow up tweet, published about five minutes later, is where things went off the rails: “All venues, grandstands, concession stands and Fan Shop are closed. For guests in hospitality tents, all services – including food and beverage – are now closed, and you are advised to exit the premises as well.

“Tickets and parking are non-refundable. Please see PGA TOUR’s ticket terms and conditions with respect to our refund policy.”

Here’s a sampling of the responses from fans:
