Lee Westwood RIPPED over trying to flog LIV Golf Tour tickets

The LIV Golf Tour is heading to Bangkok this week to make its debut in Asia, featuring the likes of our subject Lee Westwood. 

As ever, there is is a bit of promotional work that Westwood and the rest of the LIV boys need to do to plug their tournament. 

That means meeting with fans beforehand, attending media interviews and posting advertisements on their social media channels.

If you weren't aware, LIV have caught a bit of flack over the fact that they have had to give away tickets for free in their inaugural season, which fellow LIV player and Crushers GC captain Bryson DeChambeau has described as "a beta test". 

Westwood once again reached out to his followers and implored "anyone in and around" the area to come and support the event using his code WESTWOOD25 to get a discount. 

Side note: The codes that we are talking about also previously revealed some of LIV's signings before they were made official.

What an hilarious gaffe that was!  

Anyway, Westy was on the receiving end of some rather interesting comments to say the least:

LIV Golf Bangkok will take place over October 7-9 at Stonehill Golf Club in the Phathum Thani province of Thailand
