PGA Tour professional Grayson Murray found himself in hot water on Wednesday night after the golfer tweeted, and then immediately deleted, a creepy message to a teenage girl saying that he “hates the fact” that she is in high school.

Rookie Murray, currently ranked 163rd in the world, tweeted an apology on Thursday afternoon:
“In response to my recent Twitter comment I apologize to anyone whom I offended and most of all I apologize to the young lady I involved….,” the tweet read.
