Golf Books #100 (Ian Poulter: The Biography of Britain’s Golfing Hero)

Apr 2nd
2013

A biography of one of the most flamboyant and outspoken voices in professional golf

Charting Poulter’s life from when he first picked up a golf club at the age of seven and hit the ball 140 yards to his triumphant charge in the 2012 Ryder Cup, this is a story every golf fan will want to read. Poulter has earned his success the hard way and the book details how he grafted to become a professional golfer, having to pay to play at the golf club that employed him.

It details his struggle to turn professional in 1994 before his obvious talent saw him join the European Tour in 2000, where he won Rookie of the Year. Today, Poulter a fixture in the world’s top 15 players, a friend and neighbour of Tiger Woods in Florida, and unmissable on the course with own range of garish clothing.

The book looks at all the stories, such as why he wore an Arsenal shirt at the Abu Dhabi Championship in 2006 and how he almost came to blows with Colin Montgomery in a restaurant. Of course, it also looks closely at all Poulter’s golfing achievements.

Ranked fourth in the World Golf Rankings in 2010, he is a stalwart of the European Ryder Cup team, twice victor in the World Golf Championship Matchplay Tournament, and a winner of numerous European and PGA Tour events. Together, all these aspects create a biography that is fascinating, revealing, and honest—much like Ian Poulter himself.

2012

Shared from TrendyGolf Magazine

Whatever happens in the final round at Medinah today, this year’s Ryder Cup will be remembered from a European perspective for the heroics of Ian Poulter.

The man from Hitchin has been nerveless under pressure, proving his worth and showing once more that he lives for golf’s biggest team competition.

One of the stand-out elements of Poulter’s latest Ryder Cup appearance, barring his teasing of the crowds and peerless putting stroke, has been the array of custom-designed Puma Neo Classic shoes that he’s been using to accessorise with the standard European team outfits. But wait, there’s more

2010

The playing field has changed. Stuffy traditionalists no longer rule the turf.
Today’s fairways are full of a fresh crop of seeds who have begun popping up on the leaderboards at golf tournaments around the world.

Ian Poulter is a perfect example of this new breed of golfer who respects the sanctity of the game without bowing down to its more antiquated conventions.
Ian and his fellow contemporaries have loosened it up while electrifying audiences with their on-course action and after-event antics. It’s a much-needed infusion of unorthodox energy, just like Oakley injects into the sport every year by constantly reinventing itself, in a perpetual state of youth, never willing to settle for the same old score.
