English golfer Ian Poulter found himself in hot water as he ran into a raging row on the social networking site Twitter with Steve Elkington, a former champion at the US PGA Championship after he claimed that he would like to taser the muppets who keep on shouting during golf tournaments.
As it was, the 37 year old Englishman was disappointed with his performances at the Oak Hill and there was more fuel added to the fire after he posted a tweet on the popular social networking site lambasting those fans who yell on golf courses. According to the tweet posted by Poulter, professional golfers should be allowed to carry 10,000 volt tasers with them onto the golf course and tazer every fan who decides to shout out something stupid and have a laugh, adding that he would have a laugh then.
This sparked an angry reaction from Elkington who posted a message on Twitter, addressing Ian Poulter which stated that the fans the Englishman chose to refer to as muppets are known as patrons. But the Englishman was in mood to have a curt conversation with Elkington after finishing at tied 61st at the US PGA Championship, failing to challenge even once at Oak Hill and told Elkington that would be better off crawling back under the rocks with his friends.
In what was another major failure for the Englishman, the response he gave to Elkington would have surprised many but he was not finished yet as he went on to endorse a fan’s tweet asking if the evetran was indeed not liked by most of the professional golfers on Tour.
But Ian Poulter in decent mood later on when he summed up his four rounds at the Oak Hill last weekend and did not seem to have any problem whatsoever.
