    Re: C'mon Poults!

    Some very good points being made about Poulter's attitude. I thought he was magnanimous in victory, how anyone can think he's an arrogant man after watching that I do not know.
    I like putting. (2017 handicap: 11.2...10.0)

    Im with the majority here, I certainly dont think his celebration was OTT when you take into account what he's been through with his game in the last two years, then the last two weeks. Who ever knocks him for winning last week when he needed to and letting his emotions out after doing so is a k nob of butter!

    I just don;t see the arrogance that he is accused of. Watched him last night in a discussion on Sky and I thought he came across as a decent and thoughtful guy.

    Mind you - that he turned professional with a handicap of 4 does suggest that in his younger days he might well have had significant 'look-at-me; aren't-I-great; I'm-going-to-be-a-star' traits.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    According to his Wikipedia, his handicap was 4 because at his club where he was assistant pro he still had to pay extra to enter competitions so he didn't bother.

    I used to follow him on twitter but stopped when he posted a picture of his new $30,000 settee. The ordinary man in the street just cannot relate to that, came across as arrogant then.

    That's not arrogant that's just buying what you can afford, same with his cars.

    Sure if we all had that kind of money we would find something to spend our cash on that other's don't see the value in.

    It is arrogant in a 'look at me' manner. 30k for a flippin settee! Get real. He can spend his money on whatever he wants but don't see why you need to put stuff like that in the public domain.

    You don't need to post about it though to be fair. Why would anyone care what he parks his backside on when he's watching TV?
