If you're gonna be completely unlikable you better be close to the top. Having people root for you to fail can't make it any easier.

Awesome.

Dear Ian, T128 is not a good start.

I'm sure IJP is not pleased being one of the dewsweepers this morning - first group to tee off, already started bogey, birdie and is E after 3 holes.

I can't be the only one who would relish him having a 12 footer on the last hole, needing it to make the expected cut ..... and seeing it just slip by.

Maybe we can start a movement to boycott any sponsor that gives this turd an exemption once he loses his card :beer: (joking...mostly)

Yep--lots of good answers for that in this thread, alone.  But also, if you closely watch/listen to a tourney when a live mic is nearby, you'll see and hear for yourself that he is is prone to treating people like dirt when things aren't going well.  I didn't watch much of the RBC Heritage last weekend, but did see him on the last few of round 4 needing a good finish to secure his card.  His round was lackluster (+1, I think), and late in the round, the mics picked him up showing that same ol' side.

I don't mind the style/flair, or personality to match, or stepping up in the Ryder Cup, razzing up the rivalry, etc.  Heck, I'd argue those things are great for the sport, and make golf more fun to watch.  But the dude just seems to be a complete jerk.

I think it's linked earlier in this thread; @iacas has first-hand experience with IP from years back.  So...seems like IP is simply content with being who he is.

As of now he's even on round 2 with a projected position of 129.

Doesn't he have to jump all the way to 70th make the cut ?

Besides - do sponsors want that? Who wants to use the same gear that Poulter uses?

(Maybe Ferrari?)

You wouldn't rather see that on Sunday?

 

My desire for a DeChambeau/Johnston final pairing with Poulter in the penultimate group slowly losing it seems unlikely to be fulfilled.

He's all over the place today.  4 birdies, 4 pars, and 3 bogies through 11.  1 under, but still only T112 with 7 to play.

I really wouldn't mind seeing him make the cut, just because it'll make for an interesting storyline in an otherwise fairly uninteresting tournament.

Oh - it could be both - today to make the cut, and if he makes it then again on Sunday to keep/lose his card. And potentially even later as others move up & down the leaderboard bumping IJP in and out of position.
It could be a great drinking game!!!

That sounds like too much energy. My limit is silently wishing for him to fail.

Nor do I. I actually enjoy those things.
