Ian Poulter lets it all out and fires back at critics as LIV Golf woes continue

Even though Ian Poulter hasn’t been at his best since switching to LIV Golf, the Englishman is still confident in his ability to succeed on the breakaway circuit.

In response to his detractors, Ian Poulter has taken to social media as his problems with the Majesticks have persisted during this week’s LIV Golf circuit in Singapore.

Along with former Ryder Cup teammates Lee Westwood and Henrik Stenson, Poulter co-captains the Majesticks. Completing the four-man team is fellow countryman Sam Horsfield. Only in 2024 will the all-European squad surpass the Iron Heads in terms of form, as they currently occupy the second-bottom spot in the season-long team standings.

The Majesticks have had a particularly difficult two weeks, finishing last on the team standings in both Adelaide and Singapore. Poulter’s current personal ranking in 2024 is 37th out of 54 LIV players.

The former European Ryder Cup player tied for second place in Australia before closing the week in Singapore in a tie for 35th place at two under. Poulter has been under fire ever since he chose to move to Saudi Arabia in 2022, but in the wake of LIV Singapore, he had a moving message for his detractors.

He posted on Instagram on Monday, saying, “I don’t need to win again.” But I will, and those who don’t think, believe, or post negativity here ought to examine themselves in the mirror because they are most likely concealing some problems. Thus, kindly seek assistance or advice from close friends.

“Belief, motivation, and the desire to succeed motivate us all to put in more effort. Spread some joy and be happy yourself. It will be helpful, I swear.” Co-captain Westwood, who is one of just three LIV players who hasn’t earned a point in the 2024 standings, has had it even harder.

On the year-long leaderboard, Horsfield is ranked 45th, and third skipper Stenson is two places ahead of Poulter in 35th. Poulter was eager to highlight the positive things the Majesticks franchise is doing in the game of golf, especially the team’s “Little Sticks” initiative that encourages kids to play the game, despite his team’s dismal performance.

He wrote, “Although Team @majesticksgc’s performance on the course isn’t very good right now.” “Which some of you continue to tell me. Not everything that is done on the course provides the whole picture. I’m incredibly proud of our team’s #littlesticks initiative and our franchise.

It’s great to see curriculums being developed for schools that cater to students with different disabilities as well as those who have never touched a club or will never be exposed to golf. Our data and feedback indicate that we can have an impact on a significant number of these children.

“Winning isn’t always necessary to succeed. And even as we help others perform better, we never stop working to raise our own bar. And I’m confident that this team will deliver results quickly on all fronts.” After a four-week break, Poulter and his teammates will resume competition in Houston on June 7.
