Grayson Murray and Kelly Kraft's thoughts on the European and Asian tours have received to-the-point responses from Ben An and Thomas Pieters.
And now Murray, after deleting some of the tweets shown below, is contemplating a break from social media.
The Twitter thread started last week when Kraft tweeted:
It's amazing to me how fast some of the Asian Tour/ Euro tour guys rise in the world golf rankings.— Kelly Kraft (@kkraft11) March 23, 2017
In agreement, the 2016 Web.com Finals money leader Murray added:
Let's go play over there and then we will be in every major and WGC event the rest of our lives! https://t.co/HJRlcdl6TE— Grayson Murray (@GraysonMurray) March 23, 2017
Murray's post prompted the following responses Tuesday:
dont be jealous. come to europe and asia to at least have a chance to play WGCs or Majors https://t.co/Ww0g6v0ghi— Byeong Hun An (@ByeongHunAn) March 29, 2017
@GraysonMurray or you guys could just text that to each other, and not make a fool of yourself for tweeting nonsense— Thomas Pieters (@Thomas_Pieters) March 29, 2017
For the record, Pieters is ranked 34th in the world, An 55th, Murray 155th, and Kraft 178th.
Murray, as is becoming his custom, continued to tweet throughout the day before considering a break late Tuesday night and getting oddly political:
It's amazing how many tough people there are on twitter!— Grayson Murray (@GraysonMurray) March 29, 2017
@RamsayGolf haha finally someone gets my sarcasm. But Kelly's statement was true— Grayson Murray (@GraysonMurray) March 29, 2017
@ByeongHunAn why did you go to Europe when you turned pro? Oh wait you couldn't get through PGA tour school right away....— Grayson Murray (@GraysonMurray) March 29, 2017

Does anyone else find it ironic in my and @kkraft11 original tweet we never singled anyone out but the ones who feel threatened are chirping— Grayson Murray (@GraysonMurray) March 30, 2017
