Poulter blames quadruple bogey 8 on cameraman
It’s likely your Friday was better than Ian Poulter’s. At least when it came to the disastrous quadruple-bogey eight he carded at the Hong Kong Open today.
Poulter nearly missed cut the thanks to a nightmare performance on the par-4 15th hole.
And the victim of Poulter’s wrath was an unsuspecting cameraman. After finishing the hole, Poulter lashed out. “Next time I’m ready to play my shot, don’t be running in behind me,” he said.
Poulter nailed three birdies in five holes and edged into the top 10 prior to the 15th.
Sky Sports describes the action from here:
Poulter sent his approach into the rough before chunking his chip into the sand. After two failed attempts to get out of the bunker, Poulter’s third got back into play but shot across the green and into the fringe before a long range two-putt completed a quadruple-bogey eight.
Poulter finished with a 78 Friday and make the cut. He had posted a two-under 68 on Thursday and was three under in the second round before arriving at No. 15.
