Poulter brings the passion to Ryder Cup
Stricker has seen those eyes far too often, particularly in singles at Valhalla when the Englishman started with three birdies in four holes.
“When he yells and scream, they bug out. That’s why you want to beat him,” Stricker said with a smile. “I’ve played with him a bunch outside the Ryder Cup. He’s a good guy. He’s good to play with. He’s a big-time competitor. He grinds it out and he works hard. And you can tell he’s working hard at it and wanting to beat you. And when you come across a guy who really wants to beat you, you really want to beat him.”
Poulter likes to shine off the golf course, which adds to his audacious personality.
He has his own clothing line and was bold enough to wear all pink in the final round of the 2006 U.S. Open in New York. And who can forget those Union Jack trousers, and another pair with the claret jug, that he once wore at the British Open. Poulter is not bashful about showing off his extravagance _ a recent photo on Twitter showed two of his Ferraris stacked on hydraulic lifts in the garage of his new home at Lake Nona. The house looks more like a hotel.
McDowell recalled a fourballs match he played with Poulter at Valhalla, with both teams firing birdies at each other. Poulter won the match with a birdie putt on the 18th hole, and McDowell said he woke up the next morning with a sore arm.
“I couldn’t work out why it was sore, and then I remembered,” McDowell said. “We were high-fiving each other so hard because it was so emotional. He gets the Ryder Cup in a very, very good way. He gets charged up. No one can strut around like Poultsy. It’s great. He’s the guy I’d love to play with again.”
