Are you one of those golfers that hates to practice and routinely struggles to make your tee time? Then Lee Westwood has a phrase to describe you and himself.
Westwood, who finished up at 3-under 67 first round in the 2016 U.S. Open on Friday, was asked about the USGA's somewhat peculiar decision to not afford the 78-player Thursday first wave a warm-up period after the second weather delay. He didn't seem to mind because he normally doesn't warm up before he plays.
"It was strange, but I Rolls Royce it a lot of the time now," he said.
Man, that's a great phrase.
"I'll go and play golf when I'm at home on a Saturday morning or a Sunday morning. I don't hit any balls to warm up. So now when we're not hitting balls, I don't stiffen up or anything like that. Being the finely tuned athlete I am, you wouldn't expect that, would you?"
Not only did the phrase draws laughs, but so did the rest of his answer.
And now I can explain why I don't show up to the first tee until about two minutes beforehand. I'm Rolls Royce-ing it.
THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
