Max Homa apologises for "disparaging comments" about World Cup

PGA Tour star Max Homa has apologised for his so-called "disparaging comments" following the United States' tie draw with England in the World Cup after one sports fan took offence to his tweet. 

Homa, 32, took to Twitter after the 0-0 draw against England last week to have some fun with the whole US, English divide when it comes to terminology of the beautiful game. 

Where the rest of the world say draw and football, the Americans say tie and soccer. 

The five-time PGA Tour winner is seemingly not a massive soccer fan, but he thought he would get involved in some World Cup banter. 

Homa thought he would play along with the latest result, using references from American Football (NFL) and a GIF in the process.

"I’m hearing we tied the soccer match today," tweeted Homa.

"No overtime. No playoff. Just a tie. I’m also hearing we’re excited about this tie and that I can also call it a draw #soccer."

But as we all know very well by now, especially on social media, some people take life far too seriously. 

Homa, after all, is the unofficial King of PGA Tour Twitter. 

One of Homa's followers replied: "I like you man but I think you need to realize how many golf fans (people that effectively pay your salary) also love soccer."

After reading that one response, Homa then told his followers he would no longer be making any more comments about soccer or the World Cup again. 

"I will never tweet about soccer again," Homa tweeted.

"I’m sorry for disliking ties/draws. My apologies to the entire soccer community for my disparaging comments.

"All the best for the rest of the World Cup!"

The United States went on to defeat Iran 1-0 on Tuesday night to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup. 

They will now face the Netherlands in their Last 16 match on Saturday.
