Ian Poulter And Golf Shorts

Ian Poulter is not only a pro tee to watch out for his moves on the course, but he has fashion advice to impart to the fellow golfers.

As he and Adidas have come up with a new design of summer golf shorts, it is definitely something that the golfers can look forward to as they look at their summer attire options when out on the course. The Ultimate Short or what it is called is flexible and lightweight. It is comfortable as well, which is what every golfer looks forward to when they are sweating it out in the sun on the grass. Many might be wondering why the players are made to wear long pants when the tournaments are held in the middle of summer. Often the weather is hundred degrees and it definitely gets hot when one needs to be out there for a long time.

Other games do not ask players to wear long pants such as in tennis, football or basketball. Golf should have shorts allowed at every tournament event.

Lee Westwood have to work hard to be European Ryder Cup 2020 captain

Lee Westwood, a probable captain’s pick for this year’s Ryder Cup team of Europe, is already thinking about the future.

A leading sport website reported that Westwood stated that he would like to go on a bit longer. If he put his name in for the captaincy in four years’ time then he could think regarding the seniors after that.

Four years would be 2020 when Ryder Cup goes to the Whistling Straits, site of PGA Championship 2015. But Lee, who has played in the 3rd most Ryder Cups ever for Europe, insists that he has not done competing yet.
He added that his target is to qualify – you just need 1 or 2 good weeks and you are there. If not, he is happy to go along and get some captaincy experience as vice-captain. He has played in 9 Ryder Cups. Therefore, he has got the respect of other golfers. He feels that he really could help the team.

Ian Poulter Engaged In A New Twitter Squabble

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.

Ryder Cup reshuffle for Team US

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.
