( – Reigning U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau has offered to settle a debate that emerged during the recent presidential debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden: the true measure of Biden’s golfing skills.

During the debate, which was broadcasted live on CNN, the discussion ventured from traditional policy topics into more personal territory, specifically the candidates’ proficiency in golf. This topic surprisingly sparked one of the more animated exchanges of the evening. Trump, keen to showcase his fitness and prowess, claimed victory in two recent club championships, which he highlighted as evidence of his superior golfing abilities. He proudly stated that to win these championships, you need to be “smart” and “hit the ball a long way.” He said that he can do this, but that Biden “can’t hit a ball 50 yards.”

In response, Biden retorted that he had managed to lower his handicap to six while he was Vice President, a statement that Trump quickly dismissed as “the biggest lie.” Biden later corrected his statement and said his handicap was eight.

The back-and-forth over their golf handicaps quickly went viral on social media platforms. Amidst the online buzz, Bryson DeChambeau, known for his analytical approach to golf, chimed in on social media with a proposal to host a golf match on his YouTube channel to settle the debate once and for all.

Biden escalated the challenge by proposing a “driving contest,” with the caveat that it should only proceed if Trump agreed to carry his own bag.

DeChambeau’s comment comes on the heels of his second major victory at the U.S. Open and a series of commendable performances. Since transitioning to the LIV Golf league, DeChambeau has seen a significant uptick in his career trajectory. After starting the year ranked 155th in the world, he quickly ascended to the 10th spot, bolstered by a tie for sixth at the Masters and a near miss at the PGA Championship, where he was a single birdie putt away from victory.
