Ian Poulter switches to long putter and claw grip…but all is not as it seems

Published

on

Ian Poulter was in his element on Thursday, with the Englishman using Instagram to pull off a slick April Fools Joke.

The 45-year-old posted a video of himself practising with a belly putter and a claw grip in preparation for next week’s Masters tournament with the caption:

“I’ve been testing this for a while and it’s simply more consistent. Putting is key at the Masters. So if you can’t beat them join them…”

While some posters fell for the prank, the pros were quick to see through Poulter’s scheming:

  • Bryson DeChambeau: “Uh oh, is this one of those April… you know….”
  • Tyrrell Hatton: “Just need a greens book now.”
  • Justin Thomas: “Better get it in fast before it’s banned!”

It wouldn’t have been a true April Fools Day without a little something from the Postman!

Brooks Koepka gets engaged to Jena Sims; Signs of Masters hope?

Published

on

Brooks Koepka is now engaged to Jena Sims after the couple announced the news on their social media sites on Thursday.

The two began dating in 2017, and Sims, who has been prominent at tournaments involving Brooks since then, revealed the engagement news with the caption: “Forever is no joke.”

Doubt remains over Koepka’s involvement at next week’s Masters, but there has been the odd sighting of optimism for Brooks’ legion of fans besides the seemingly free movement of the 4-time major champ in Sims’ photos posted yesterday.

The Masters website removed Tiger Woods from their player list for 2021, but Koepka remains in said list, and according to Rich Lerner at Golf Channel, the 30-year-old was taking full swings at Riviera CC this week.

Could a newly engaged Koepka still tee it up at Augusta?

What did you do during lockdown? LPGA star provides the greatest answer ever

Published

on

Shanshan Feng is making her first start in 16 months at this week’s ANA Inspiration, and things are going pretty well, with the 31-year-old currently sitting tied for second after the opening round.

Feng is well-known on tour as being one of the most entertaining characters in the game, and she did not disappoint following her round when asked about her year off.

Speaking to Amy Rogers, Feng gave the most relatable and hilarious answer imaginable as she revealed her lockdown routine in 2020:

“I didn’t really do anything. Just like boring normal life. After you get up you think about what you want to eat for breakfast, and after breakfast you think about what you want to eat for lunch, and after lunch you think about what you want to eat for dinner.”

Here’s hoping Feng remains in and around the lead, so we get more gems like this from the Chinese star.
