English professional golfer Ian Poulter is one of the few who pulled out from the BMW PGA Championship next month. According to Poulter he is not going to compete in the European Tour’s flagship event starting May 21 due to his previous poor performances at Wentworth. Along with Ian Paul Casey, Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia also announced their withdrawal from the said competition.
For listing his names among the absentees, Ian faced quite a backlash from his critics. But when it comes to expressing his opinion he is never took the back seat. Poulter twitted that he has been a part of 13 PGA’s at Wentworth, has 1 Top 10 and has 8 MC. He also compared himself with Usain Bolt by saying that Bolt would never compete in a marathon just like he would not compete in Wentworth. Fellow professional Ian Ellis took a part in the debate and said that he has even more embarrassing record but will still be participating in the competition. To which Ian replied that it’s a great tournament but his stats don’t lie and he can’t shovel s*** uphill forever.

With Tiger Woods’s conspicuous absence at the announcement of Davis Love III as the new captain of the US Ryder Cup team, a whole host of radical changes were also introduced as the Americans try to stop the amazing run of wins that Team Europe has been of late in the event.
Woods lives barely 10 miles away from where the event was being hosted and according to sources close to him, he did not turn up for the event because he did not want to overshadow the coronation of Love. He has been on a sabbatical as he looks to get back into shape ahead of the Masters in April and he felt that his presence would have overshadowed the appointment of Love as the team’s new skipper.
One of the major radical changes that have come about with Love, and every subsequent captain is that he will have two vice captains who have captained the team before and two more vice-captains, who have previous Ryder Cup experience, and would presumably go on to be captains themselves, somewhat emulating Team Europe’s “Liverpool boot room” template of the 1980s.
