Ian Poulter - Ass

Loving the thread topic 😂

Although, I have a non golfing friend who’s met him off the course and says he’s a pretty decent person in a social environment.

If I had to guess, it’s possibly just a show? “Fing Paparazzi” type of show? 😎

I’ve never met him, but it seems very likely that he’s nice, gracious, engaging, and cool most of the time, to most people. Probably cool to have a pint with. 

It’s obvious that he also snaps on people with little or no provocation, has a heavy chip on his shoulder, and relishes conflict. 

Both images of him are not mutually exclusive. But consider this point..

Its easy to be nice and likable when everything is going fine, and there’s no stressor. When people get under pressure, they show their true colors. 

Two sides of a coin (like all of us), but if one side is disproportionately impactful to others, particularly in a negative way, it can’t be ignored.

I think Poulter is just uber passionate about golf. We've seen it af the Ryder cups. When someone is that passionate about a subject you often get to experience the best and worst from them depending on the situation.

I do think the "bad" side of him is bordering on an anger issue (going by what we see) but the tour pro's are under so much pressure to perform it's just got to get to all them at times. Some just deal with ot all better than others.
