You won’t believe Ian Poulter’s social media dispute with a fan over his lavish lifestyle

Published

on

Ian Poulter has long had one of the best social media presences on Tour, but things got a little testy on Instagram on Sunday for the 12-time European Tour winner.

Poulter has not been shy to show off his Ferrari collection on social media, and has spoken passionately about his obsession with cars in the past. An Instagram user by the name of Elliot was not amused, however, and it led to this interaction.

The Ryder-Cup stalwart defended his lavish lifestyle on the grounds of the travel requirements of being a professional golfer, and how providing for his family is of upmost importance. Poulter ended the exchange with a lengthy proclamation, as well as a cheeky jab back at the fan.

Heading into the first leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs, Poulter currently sits 79th in the FedEx Cup standings and has some work to do at the Northern Trust if he wishes to keep his season alive past this week.

    I’m surprised anyone cares about lil poults anyway… Seriously one of the most annoying people going. Was a fan initially as his story is good, but he’s well past his 15 mins and cares more about posting pics than anything else…

    Frankly, I think Elliot has a point. Flying is contributing to global warming, golfers fly about thirty times a year. I don’t see a future that can support environmentalism and professional golf as it is currently practiced.

    No one has benefitted more from saving the world from Global Warming than Al Gore. Believe he has benefitted to the tune of a couple hundred million….

    Eliot and the other uneducated fanatics who have bought in to the carbon emission scam should know that carbon gas comprises far less than 1% of the Planet’s gases. Carbon is necessary for photosynthesis that literally keeps Earth alive. Natural forces at work on the planet that are beyond human control are cyclical and drive whatever long term changes occur over time. This endless propaganda is designed subtly for control with another chunk of personal freedom chipped away
    and replaced by taxes for actually living our lives.

      You’re spouting misinformation from Reddit boards and accusing environmentalists of ignoring the science. Wow.

      “Humans have increased the abundance of carbon dioxide by 45 percent since the beginning of the Industrial Age

      80+% of oxygen required for breathing/living comes from the rain forests and oceans.
      As ocean temperature rises oceans produce less and less oxygen
      As we intrude upon and destroy rain forests, less and less oxygen is available for life.

      IOW, we are SOL whether Ian P has one or twenty Ferrari.

    Just another SJW troll pushing his agenda. Granted Poulter doesn’t need to push/flaunt his lifestyle on others as well. Both in my mind need to Sierra Tango Foxtrot Uniform

    Lots of golfers are serious cyclists and lots of cyclists are serious golfers. So, there’s that.

    Haters gonna hate and trolls need to just go away. Elliot needs a life, time for him to ride away into the sunset, actually he should walk, barefoot and naked since the bicycle and clothing creation also contributes to warming, good grief people!

Rory McIlroy’s equipment changes paying early dividends at BMW Championship

Published

on

Rory McIlroy holds the first round co-lead of the BMW Championship after a blistering seven-under par 64 that included seven birdies and one eagle. A couple of recent equipment changes might have been just what the doctor ordered for the four-time major champion.

Last week at the Northern Trust, McIlroy was so disappointed with his three-wood that he actually threw the club into the woods during his final round.

The recent Wells Fargo Championship winner took a quick flight home to Florida ahead of this week’s BMW Championship, and returned to competition this week strapped with a few new secret weapons.

“I went into the garage and rummaged through a few different things, got my old putter back out, got my old 3-wood, brought a few shafts out, tried out different shafts in the driver, went to a new shaft in the driver, and it seemed to work out today,” McIlroy said after the round.

“Work out” might be an understatement, as the world number 16 tied his best round of the entire season, and included shots like this, which have us conjuring memories of vintage McIlroy.

McIlroy is as thoughtful as they come, and the equipment changes (which included putting a Graphite Design Tour AD XC shaft in his driver) certainly was backed by technical reasoning.

“I just had a driver I felt was spinning a little too much, so a couple of times last week into the wind, I’d hit it and it would balloon up in the air and then if I wanted to try and hit a cut off the tee, I was not comfortable doing it because I felt like I was losing too much distance by hitting the cut,” McIlroy commented.

A simple switch seems to have been the perfect spark for the 28-time PGA Tour winner. McIlroy tees off at 11:21 A.M. Eastern standard time alongside Sungjae Im and Billy Horschel in round two of the BMW Championship.

Kevin Kisner claps back at fan in hilarious way

Published

on

In the first round of the BMW Championship at Caves Valley Golf Club, Kevin Kisner was going about his business as usual until a drunk patron attempted to question his strategy.

Per Twitter user @NCTattoo14, Kisner then displayed exactly why you shouldn’t do that…

The recent Wyndham Championship winner has long been known for his dry sense of humor, and in this scenario, we truly couldn’t have thought of a more Kevin Kisner response.

The Ryder Cup hopeful shot a first round even-par 71 to sit in a tie for 56th-place. He tees off in round two at 1:55 P.M. Eastern standard time alongside Max Homa and Charley Hoffman.

Pro poker player almost shoots 59 at Korn Ferry Tour Q School

Published

on

If you’ve ever wondered how competitive Korn Ferry Tour Q School is, then wonder no more, as the talent pool is so deep that there are even players with other primary professions blitzing courses every week.

This week it was the turn of Dustin Denzik, a professional poker player, who rocked up to a pre-qualifier for Korn Ferry Tour Q School at Lake Caroline GC in Madison, Miss, and fired a 10-under-par 60.

The round was first reported by Firepit Collective’s Ryan French, who also dug into some info on Denzik’s poker career to date, which includes multiple cashes in World Series of Poker events.

Denzik describes himself as a “scratch golfer, prop bettor” in his World Series of Poker player biography, and he showcased his golf skills last month when he earned $2,350 for finishing T3 at the Kentucky Open.

But his round of 60 this week may be a sign that we could be seeing much more of Denzik in the future and gives him a three-shot lead at Lake Caroline GC – with the top 32 and ties after three rounds advancing to the First Stage.

After that, the Second Stage begins in October, with the Final Stage starting in November – with competitors making it this far guaranteed to be granted some form of Korn Ferry Tour status.
