JR Smith drives a Bentley, and Bryson DeChambeau is all for it. From the looks of it, the two have been spending some time together thanks to Smith’s latest venture. The basketball player turned golfer, who recently took part in his first collegiate golfing tournament, also made headlines with his performance.

Bryson DeChambeau praises Smith’s car choice

DeChambeau posted a story on his Instagram with a picture of Smith driving in his latest car. He wrote, “JR pulled up in a Bentley. He has good taste.” Smith did not lose the validation by DeChambeau and reposted the story.

The 2020 US open winner himself has a great taste and unsurprisingly, also drives a Bentley! He featured in TikTok star Dan Mac’s viral ‘What do you do for a living’ trend last month and was driving a $220,000 Bentley Bentayga.

Moreover, the 36-year-old basketball star recently played his first golf tournament at the Phoenix Invitational. Commenting on his first experience of competitive golf, Smith said, “I was nervous, I was. I didn’t really know what to expect… It was actually a very humbling feeling. Again, I’m ready to go to that range to work on it. I had fun, but I don’t like losing.”

Head coach Richard Watkins said, “I was pretty pleased with him. He made some mistakes, did some things you will do if you’re not used to competing. Just going out and playing recreational golf with your buddies is a whole lot different than competition.”
