I only saw one shot of Lee Westwood’s round in the PGA last week – his final putt on the 18th green. I had no idea what his score or position was but I do remember him absolutely rattling it in from about two feet. ”My word he gave that a wallop” I thought. “Lucky it didn’t bounce out”. It now becomes clear that he probably couldn’t give a rat’s arse whether it bounced out or not. I’m talking about his rants on Twitter of course – when he decided at 4am local time he’d had enough of the various accusations that he’ll never win a Major, that he’s a bottler or that he’s shit at golf. And I loved it – not that he feels bad or tormented – just that he lost his rag so spectacularly. I’m just glad I’m not famous and on Twitter (something I wouldn’t exactly be regarding as a win double). Not only would I serve up foul mouthed abuse in excess of anything Westwood did, I’d probably start trolling the trolls and leaving 50 messages on their pages in return. This week’s question is: what do you think of Lee Westwood’s Twitter rantings? Answer this week’s poll and leave a comment with your Twitter username to be in with a chance of winning an Irish Winter Festival satellite token.
