Sir Nick Faldo CALLS OUT Lee Westwood's stock yardage post on Twitter

Sir Nick Faldo has jokingly questioned the stock yardages of future hall-of-famer Lee Westwood. 

Westwood, who will join Padraig Harrington's Team Europe at Whistling Straits later this month, posted a clip of his stock yardages. 

Westy shows the camera his 8-iron which has '164' written on the back with a black marker.

He then flushes one straight down the middle of the range and the camera zooms in on the numbers. 

 

 

The 25-time European Tour champion must have misgrooved it, as he was off by a whole yard at 163.

Sir Nick saw the funny side of it, poking fun asking him if he had taken into account different factors. 

 

 

He asked Westwood if his stock yardage was at altitude or sea level, inland or at the seaside. 

Fast grass or slow grass, mud or sand, high humidity or low barometric pressure, he typed. 

Sir Nick is not afraid to voice his opinion. 

He previously had a pop at Rickie Fowler by joking that if he misses the Masters he could have time to shoot more commercials. 

Faldo later clarified he meant no disrespect after the Tweet went viral.
