Ian Poulter Rants on Twitter About Not Playing Euro Tour Event

April 21, 2015

Ian Poulter has never been shy on Twitter. Public conversation of his professional rounds and favorite soccer matches tend to populate his feed. Sometimes, though, he’ll criticize, normally those who criticize him.

Derek Lawrenson, a writer from the Daily Mail in England, criticized Poulter (as well as Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia) in slight for not playing in the BMW PGA Championship in late May at Wentworth Club, arguing they weren’t “doing the right thing.” He also referred to Poulter as a “local favourite,” but Poulter wasn’t having it.

So the English professional golfer tweeted at the brand, shaming Lawrenson specifically for writing the article, asking if he had “Nothing to write about again?” before continuing his short tweetstorm by explaining why he wouldn’t be playing. In short, it’s because he hasn’t played well in that event. In fact, he’s played rather poorly in his 13 appearances, as he explicitly made clear in the following tweets.
