In order to stay relevant sometimes you have to say things that people will dislike, like when Johnny Miller criticized Rory McIlroy’s shirts for being too tight or when Brandel Chamblee said McIlroy has been spending too much time in the gym. Well, Chamblee was back at it yesterday saying that modern golfers hitting up on their drives is an issue.
Chamblee made the mistake of using a picture of Jordan Spieth hitting a three wood while attempting to make his point and this caught the attention of arguably the greatest golfer in the game, Rory McIlroy, who responded with the tweet below showing just how impressive his Trackman numbers and putting Chamblee in his place, as he has done before, by reminding him that is 2017.
But McIlroy wasn’t done there, he Tweeted this on Wednesday.
Game. Set. Match.
Colt Knost and Zac Blair also jumped in, but more to joke that their numbers aren’t nearly as impressive as McIlroy’s.
