Ian Poulter comes under fire for tweet

Ian Poulter

• Ian Poulter comes under fire for outing employee on Twitter
• The man made derogatory comment about Poulter on Facebook
• Poulter uses Reliable Carriers regularly to move his car collection


After a disappointing end to a disappointing year at the Hong Kong Open, Ian Poulter had a lot of time to kill on his journey back from Asia to Orlando.

He spent a lot of that time on Twitter, first doing a Q&A for his 2.28m followers, before coming under fire for outing an employee of Reliable Carriers – an American company he uses regularly to move his car collection.

On Friday, during the second round of the Hong Kong Open, Poulter had a go at a cameraman after making a quadruple-bogey for running behind him when he was getting ready to hit his shot.

The Englishman, somehow, spotted this a shared Facebook from the man in relation to his reaction – and took to Twitter to show his displeasure.

However, not a lot of people agreed with the way he had gone about it.



But Poulter stuck to his guns.





And he did receive some support.

    I dont like Poulter but in this case the car driver was totally at fault.

    Car driver clearly had a great experience face to face delivering his car, and received a tip according to Poulter, then announces on social media he thinks Poulter is a true dick.

    Theres only one dick I can see in this story.

    Private matters should be kept private, after all there are no winners here, a shut mouth catches no flies.

    Poulter is not my favourite but he is absolutely correct. This guy thinks he has a right to insult people without consequences Well guess what it doesn’t work that way

    Both parties are at fault. Poulter has a very inflated opinion of himself. He is a fairly average pro golfer – but acts like he is a top player (but without the dignity). He’d be well advised to keep disputes like this off twitter.

    If Glenn gets fired then he only has himself to blame. I am not a great Ian Poulter fan but I would have done the same thing in these circumstances.

    Can’t disagree with delivery man. Poulter is a total twat who is hopefully beginning to realise he is now a has been and is having trouble coming to terms with the reality of it. Lets be honest he never was very good at keeping his mouth shut, a lack of class.

    Well said I agree with you Louis he is a plonker and hopefully will never be captain of our Ryder cup team.

    Poulter is just like 95% of pro golfers arrogant and humorless, their behavior rubs off on each other.

    Ian Poulter is’nt really the issue here twat or otherwise the delivery driver was paid by his company and tipped by the client to deliver the car JOB DONE. If I was his boss he would be unemployed now for bringing the company he works for down to his level and losing it at least one future client, he has a duty to his employer to treat all their customers with civility whether they are twats or not SACK HIM
