Late on Tuesday, Ian Poulter withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship citing "personal reasons." According to Golf Channel, he had actually already flown to Charlotte but decided to turn around and fly home shortly thereafter.
I'm not buying the "personal reasons" schtick. Why? Because Poulter tweeted these two things a week ago:
Crazy nine holes of golf. A 12 ball played with a few alcoholic beverages on the way round. I here the greens at Qual Hollow are not good ?— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) April 23, 2013
It might be an extended break if reports are correct...— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) April 23, 2013
On Tuesday, we posted this photo of the horrendous greens at Quail Hollow.
So basically, I don't believe the "personal reasons" excuse because I can put two and two together.
Poulter's Twitter account has been the source of quite a bit of angst of late. A short while before he tweeted about the greens at Quail Hollow, he tweeted this jewel:
I've had enough of twitter for now. So many F#%€ing idiots. Time out. I'm tied of blocking myself. I'm letting someone else block the pricks— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) April 15, 2013
The self-imposed ban lasted eight days.
