If you've been paying attention, you may have noticed that @stewartcink, formerly one of golf's social media staples, has gone oddly quiet in recent months.
The man behind the handle revealed why in a recent interview with Golf Magazine's Jessica Marksbury:
"Over Twitter's life, it seems like the negativity has gotten out of control. So for someone who reads all their replies, it just gets depressing," said Cink. "People get a kick out of being negative. They don't expect anybody to read it. Well, I read my replies. And it got to be pretty annoying."

Whether it was a recent post that labelled Cink the "#worstmajorwinner ever" or the social media storm over his head tan line at the Sony Open, the six-time PGA Tour-winner is keeping the networked world at arm's length from now on.
"Twitter is still fun," he said. "If I have a fun thing or an observation I want to share with people, I'll still do it, but I won't go back and read any of my replies."
