Ian Poulter had his driver stolen in Shanghai. Unable to get a suitable replacement, he decided not to risk world ranking points by playing a different driver in the Singapore Open.
“I am really gutted. I have been thinking about it for four hours and I have decided to withdraw because my new driver will not arrive on time. It is disappointing because I did not come all this way not to play. But with so many world ranking points at stake, if I played badly I may have lost ground.”
The seven P’s
My dad has always lectured me about the “seven p’s”… “Proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance.”
With all the money at stake and all the dough someone like Poulter has, you’d think he’d have a backup of each club with him on the road?
