Ian Poulter: “I didn’t hear anything”

Despite a few whistles received at the start of 1 and a first miss, Ian Poulter returned a first card of 69 (-3). Facing the press after his first round, the English spoke at length, trying not to show himself affected. Applause at 18 after his last birdie of the day, the LIV player wishes to stay away from debates and criticism, linked to his recent departure for LIV Golf.

” I did not hear anything. Not the slightest whistle. As has been the case for three weeks. There were nearly 2,000 people in the stands. (around the tee of 1) et I can’t hear everything. I stay away from social networks, which are not always the means of expression for the finest people. Even when you take part in a charity action, someone will always find something negative to complain about… Everyone has the right to have their own opinion, whether it’s the public, the press or my colleagues. Most (other players) will always be my friends.

I’m here to do my job and I know for a fact that I can’t play well when I’m preoccupied with something, like last week. (missed cut at the Scottish Open). It’s probably my last Open at St. Andrews, so I’m trying to make the most of it and stay focused on my game.”
