Ian Poulter argues with Sky Sports reporter over LIV Golf

Ian Poulter had a heated debate with Sky Sports’ Jamie Weir on Twitter about the LIV Golf Invitational series.

It all started when Poults posted a link to an article offering a different take on the whole thing.

This article, written by Alistair Tait, was entitled “European disunity”. Tait argued it was disrespectful players like Poulter and Lee Westwood who felt unwelcome at the former European Tour’s showpiece event last week at the BMW PGA Championship.

Tait pointed out that Poulter and Westwood have now entered into an alliance 972 appearances in European Tour / DP World Tour events.

“Still, Westwood probably thought there was an invisible T for traitor painted on his back as he played Wentworth for the umpteenth time because he joined another tour,” wrote Tait.

Unsurprisingly, Poulter and Westwood both covered the track. Then things got a little spicy between Weir and Poulter.

It ended with Poulter saying his days of talking to Weir are now over, despite previously ‘enjoying’ talks with the Sky Sports man.

Take a look at the swap:

Westwood and Patrick Reed also spoke about their receptions at Wentworth. Poulter also appeared to be involved in a heated exchange with Billy Horschel on the green last week, but he later said there was nothing to it.

Poulter has maintained throughout this case that he believes he did nothing wrong.

He is one of the plaintiffs in the antitrust lawsuit alongside eight other LIV players suing the PGA Tour. Poulter had previously taken legal action to fight his way into the Genesis Scottish Open after he was fined and suspended for playing LIV’s curtain raiser event at the Centurion Club in June.

Prior to the BMW PGA Championship, he complained about his alleged negative treatment from the DP World Tour.

Westwood and Poulter are scheduled to compete in the fifth LIV Golf event in Chicago this week. The last 54-hole tournament was won by Dustin Johnson.
