Lee Westwood is one of the most prominent and experienced golfers on the PGA Tour. Moreover, the 48-year-old recently posted a video and called out Bryson DeChambeau on Twitter. Meanwhile, Westwood hasn’t competed in any of the PGA Tour events in this season so far. Most probably, he had taken a break from the game after the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.

Lee Westwood calls out Bryson DeChambeau

We all know Lee Westwood is one of the best drivers of the golf ball. He not only is accurate but also gains a significant distance off the tee. Meanwhile, Bryson DeChambeau, the man trying to revolutionize golf with his power game, recently competed in the Long Drivers Championship and impressed everyone with his excellent performance.

Hence, Lee Westwood posted a video of him hitting a bomb off the tee with his caddie and son, Sam Westwood. Lee smashed a drive with a 173 mph ball speed and 310 yards carry, which is pretty impressive. Meanwhile, along with the video, he wrote, “Long Drive training with Samuel Westwood.” Furthermore, he tagged Bryson DeChambeau and called out to him, saying, “How are we doing?”

Meanwhile, we all know Bryson is currently the longest hitter on the Tour. But surprisingly, he did not hit the longest drive in the 2020-21 PGA Tour. Interestingly, it was Lee Westwood with a 425 yards bomb at AT&T Byron Nelson.

However, Bryson DeChambeau, who is currently on a vacation, has not responded to the tweet yet. Moreover, few fans have started to speculate whether Westwood is joining the Long Drivers Championship. But given his age, it’s pretty tough for the Englishman to compete in the Long Drivers event.
