England's Dan Bradbury found the suggestion that DP World Tour players should shoot 62-63 regularly rather amusing.
The context of this comment came from a discussion about Bradbury shooting 61 at Moortown Golf Club on 26 February.
His spectacular round included 11 birdies and the solitary bogey. Impressive stuff from the 23-year-old.
But not impressive for one user, who also appeared to be a member at the Leeds-based club.
According to @LarryLundin37, it was "a nice round" but Bradbury should've shot that given the course's yardage of 6,740.
Another user pointed out that Moortown is "one of the best courses in the UK" so he should know what a good score it was.

And Bradbury has now responded:

Who is Dan Bradbury?
If the name sounds familiar that's because Bradbury claimed his maiden win on the European-based circuit in only his third start.
Bradbury won the Joburg Open by three strokes last November.
Not only did he receive a winner's cheque for $165,000, he also booked his a place at the 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.
It's not unreasonable to suggest if he cards rounds of 62-62-62-62 he just might be lifting the Claret Jug.
