Never one to hold back when it comes to Twitter, Ian Poulter laid into one particular troll in a very different way - by tagging his employers in it.

The self-confessed 'Twitter nerd', which he has written on his Instagram bio, took exception to abuse he received by two gentleman out on the course at the Valspar Championship - and later found on Twitter that they'd been doing their damned best to make his time out on the Innisbrook course a total misery.

So, kudos to Poulter, who instead of 'quote retweeting' the troll, which the person can then delete, he screenshotted the comments and left it out for his 2.18m followers to see!

Poulter finished T67 at the Valspar Championship on nine-over-par, in a tournament which was won by South African Charl Schwartzel in a play-off against Bill Haas.

In 13 PGA Tour rounds so far in 2016, Poulter, who has vowed that he will make the 2016 Ryder Cup team, has only shot one round in the 60s, with a best finish of T43 at the Honda Classic.
