Justin Thomas and the USGA are taking their Twitter beef over rules changes offline.
USGA senior managing director of championships John Bodenhamer said he hopes to meet with Thomas in the coming days to discuss some of his criticisms of the modernised Rules of Golf that took effect this year.
The World No. 3 hasn't been shy about airing his displeasure about the changes both verbally and on social media, and the USGA's public-relations arm went back at him to suggest setting up a meeting.
"We're going to talk with Justin, and we're happy we'll have an opportunity to have a conversation in a few days, hopefully," Bodenhamer told Golf Channel.
The USGA said in a tweet that Thomas has cancelled previous meetings but the player said that was incorrect.
"I haven't cancelled anything, especially any meetings. But it is what it is and all I want is the best for the game of golf and the best for the sport."
Thomas is currently playing in the Honda Classic, a tournament that has provided a plethora of rules-related issues and reactions.
The American was upset he wouldn't have been able to replace the 9-iron he bent when his follow-through went into a tree in the opening round.

Alex Cejka's disqualification on Thursday also baffled Thomas and fellow professionals.
Cejka was disqualified for using an oversized greens-reading book while Rickie Fowler made a mockery of the new drop rule, one where players must release the ball from knee-level.
Adam Schenk was told just before the start of his third round that he was being assessed a two-stroke penalty for his caddie being behind him as he prepared for a bunker shot in the second round.
Schenk's issue was the one that had Thomas venting on Twitter, and had the USGA taking notice.
"I just think it needs to be changed," he said.
Rules officials from tours around the world, led by the USGA and R&A, spent five years overhauling the rules to make them simpler and easier to understand for pros and recreational players alike.
The change in the drop received plenty of attention.
Players are also allowed to putt with the flagstick in, a change made largely to speed up recreational play, but some tour pros have started putting routinely with the pin in, saying it gives them an advantage.
