What the hell?

Curious that this would be okay in Japan at all.

Yeah that's lame...but you know what? F*ck Poulter.

That dude has the worst attitude.

Edit: Just watched Victor throw his ball in anger, this course/conditions are really getting to these guys

Here's a pic if Matsuyama apologizing on the range after the incident. It looks like Poulter is tweeting as they speak. Poulter sure likes to have an audience.

Poulter irks me in a way no other golfer can. Every time he plays poor I want to bash him on twitter but realize that it is just petty so I don't.

I do enjoy that he uses social media a lot, i wish more golfers did, but ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Poulter's grown on me. No doubt he can be an ass but his international play has won me over. Such a warrior in those events.

Poulter is alright and don't really need to know every time he wipes his ass via twitter. I agree that the burying the putter is a jerkass move but lambasting is for the media not your fellow colleagues.

Don't know... In that situation, perhaps hearing it from a fellow player has more effect on his future behavior than hearing it from the press

Poulter being an ass notwithstandin, he had every right to call out Matsuyama on that. That is a dickhead move, burying a putter like that.

He was ok burying the putter in a highly publicized event so he can takes his lumps in public too. I agree with Colin, total dick move on Matsuyama's part.

I guess I am saying if you have a problem with someone like this, say it to his face. Otherwise you can hide like a coward and beat them up on a forum like this...

He barely even made contact with the green. What a drama queen Poulter is. Plus, Matsuyama made a classy move by apologizing to 3 players on the range today.

From my understanding, Poulter was in the group behind Matsuyama so he may not have had the opportunity to call him a dick to his face. I don't think Poulter would have shied away from a direct confrontation. Hell, he knew when he tweeted that he'd be seeing him the next day. Poulter's a certified prick but I have no problem with him calling out Matsuyama on this one.

I agree that something should be said, but not like that. Maybe if the guy had a habit of doing that, but I have no reason to think that's the case here. I IMO, if you don't like something someone did, talk to them. Public humiliation isn't necessary.

You got a source or video to back that up? I didn't see the incident so maybe you're right however, if that was the case how would Poulter even be aware of the incident?
