Ian Poulter “disgusts” himself

Ian Poulter said he was “disgusted” by some of his recent performances on the tour.

The Englishman, who is preparing to launch at the Abrdn Scottish Open this week, shared his thoughts on his latest tour that began in an online blog on Monday.

Poulter, 45, has grabbed only two of the top 10 spots on the PGA Tour this season, but it appears that his latest showing at the US Open is what pissed off the 12-time European Tour winner.

“I played really stable through two rounds and 68 on Saturday put me in T15 and in position to finish,” said Poulter. in his blog.

“Sunday was Father’s Day and I got cute cards from the family. After 11 holes I was on par on the round and kept shooting seven holes on the last seven to finish the T40. Really no words. I can’t remember the last time I felt like Disgusted with myself.”

Despite the poor finish, T40 was Poulter’s best result at the US Open since 2018, when he posted a T25 at Shinnecock Hills.

Poulter was forced to bemoan another poor result in the Travelers’ Championship, calling him only the first round of the week on Sunday.

“The 68th and 66th openers had put me in a good place for the weekend,” Poulter added. “Two under after six holes on Saturday and everything was fine until a few stumbles on the field resulted in a par level round. On Sunday he shot two and finished the T36 – nothing more to say.”

Looking ahead, with the Scottish Open and Championships taking place over the next two weeks, Poulter is looking to secure a spot in the European Team Cup Ryder team, heading to Whistling Straits in September.

“I feel like my game is good,” Poulter said. “I am currently 17th on the global Ryder Cup points table so I’m looking forward to playing across the pond and the many ranking points available to make the Ryder Cup in September.”
