Lee Westwood apologizes for Twitter rant

English golfer Lee Westwood took to the popular social networking site Twitter with a series of outbursts, rounding on trolls that took him on and rubbished him for his very poor performance in the final rounds of the US PGA Championship at the Oak Hill last weekend. But the Englishman has now issued an apology for his behavior.

The 40 year old only managed to card a score of six over 76, a disappointing one to say the least, as he finished a massive 13 shots behind the eventual champion Jason Dufner and still without a single major trophy in cabinet in his professional career.

He was not, however, in any kind of mood whatsoever, to take any kind of criticism from his followers on his verified Twitter account and when one fan asked him to learn how to putt the ball first, Lee Westwood seemed pretty arrogant as he told off the fan and reminded him to get a life first before telling him what to do.

His tirade went on for a few more tweets as he went on to lambast all those fans that make comments about his performance and his career as a whole, mainly his failure to win a single major till date. However, he has now moved to make things right by positing another message on Twitter, apologizing to the fans as well as his sponsors for that amazing outburst he had.

He admitted that his comments were out of order as well as out of character and offered his since apologies. Lee Westwood also went on to dismiss the claims made by former European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie after his absolute shambolic round by merely dismissing the Scottish golfing legend as a nobody and declining to comment on his claims as well.
