Ian Poulter is having an excellent run on Twitter, all while participating in the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Poulter made headlines yesterday when he called out 21-year old Japanese golfer Hideki Matsuyama for leaving a mark on the green with his putter that had to be repaired by an official. He went on a rant culminating with him calling Matsuyama an “idiot.”
Why should Matsuyama leave a crater in the green for others to putt over, or have to call a referee to repair the damage. Idiot.

The two golfers were then paired together today for the third round.
Dale Concannon, a former PGA pro / author / journalist took Poulter to task for the way he bashed Matsuyama. Poulter responded by calling Concannon a penis multiple times. He also seems to call him a “Donut.” You may recall Poulter taking to Twitter during the Open Championship last year to proclaim the 18th hole needed a “windmill & clown face.”
