IAN POULTER

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.
