PERHAPS one of the most unpopular golfers in the world, Keegan Bradley just did something to enhance his reputation.

The 2011 US PGA Champion had a Twitter stoush with likeable former world No.1 Luke Donald, of England.

Bradley, 29, bagged Donald on Twitter for his less-than-average US PGA Tour driving distance. FYI, 260 yards is 237.7 metres.

It’s not correct. As Golf Digest (US) wrote, “And that has to be inaccurate. . . right? Let’s see (scrolling down US PGA Tour driving distance rank) . . . let’s see (still scrolling) . . . there he is. Luke Donald is ranked 178th on tour with an average of 277 yards ( 253m) per drive. Take that, Keegan!”

However, Bradley does have it over Donald – the Vermont native ranked 10th on tour with an average of 280m per drive. Tennis player Mardy Fish, a scratch golfer himself, even weighed in:

Donald’s response was to switch manly topics from feats of strength to drinking:

The war of tweets came several months after Bradley was in a heated and publicised on-course bust up with incredibly popular Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez.

We know who has the trophy for best swing, though!
